This family-friendly May Menu for Trim Healthy Mama was SO helpful for my weight loss journey, and I'm excited to share it with you! You may not want to hear this, but I'm going to tell you anyway. I've learned that dairy stalls my weight loss. Dreamfields pasta stalls my weight loss (even though it's supposed to be low-carb!). Joseph's low-carb pitas stall my weight loss.
Now, if you're anything like me, you may be wringing your hands and crying, “If I can't eat those things, what's left? What is life without cheese?” (You're probably not anywhere near as dramatic as I am, but I seriously do love my cheese).
Here's the thing – I decided to give up MOST dairy for a month with this menu. I still used butter, but I skipped those optional taco toppings and omitted the feta cheese in my favorite Mediterranean dish in this menu. And oh my goodness, those pounds that have been my closest companions for months finally started melting off! Yay! I reintroduced a little dairy again and haven't had any weight gain, but I've got to tell you that skipping the dairy made a HUGE difference for me with the menu I'm sharing today. Huge.
Best of all, with this menu I didn't feel deprived! It was so good and filling (and my kids loved every meal) that I didn't miss the cheese a bit.
Give it a try and please let me know if you notice any difference with this menu for Trim Healthy Mama!
