What's that, you say? A Trim Healthy Mama Menu for November? But it's the last day of October! How can this be? You must be so incredibly organized, having this menu ready EARLY!
That was what I imagined you saying as I was putting the finishing touches on this menu and getting ready to post it a day early. But then I caught my 3-year-old hiding out with an entire bucket of Halloween candy, and I had to try to talk her down from an unprecedented sugar high. I spent a good part of tonight chasing her around the house, only catching her briefly when she slowed down to put on a tutu (not part of her Halloween costume) and then a leopard-spotted headband (also not part of her Halloween costume). She's really cute, but she's also really fast.
Alas, when I sat down to publish this post, it was 12:03 am. By the time I'm done editing, it will be later. I really felt SO PREPARED and I was so excited, but now…well, at least I got it done! So this menu will be up on November 1st…and I'll try to do better next time. Thanks for humoring me as I've taken a reeeaaaaallly long time getting to the point of this post. Which is…
November's menu is up! It's not even three days late, like October's Menu was! That's the good news.
The not-so-good news is that the shopping list for Week 1 is ALMOST done, and it will be posted soon…I'll try to use this alleged “extra hour” from Daylight Savings Time to get it done. Now it's all good news – the shopping list for week 1 is done and you can download it below!
As always, here's what you need to know about this menu:
- I repeat breakfasts and lunches. I only plan 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches for the entire month, because it eliminates a lot of stress. This has become part of our homeschool family's routine, and it is really nice to simplify things and know that every Monday this month, we will be eating eggs and bacon for breakfast, and a big salad for lunch.
- I did a super awesome freezer cooking session this month, and I know TONS of my readers did it with me (thanks for the emails sharing your experiences!). I loved these meals so much that my family has already eaten them and it's time to fill my freezer again, so week 1 includes a 90-minute freezer cooking session to stock up on dinners for the rest of the month and beyond.
- Last month, many requested that I go back to weekly shopping lists to go with these menus, so I did.
- If you don't like one of the meals listed here, swap it out. It won't hurt my feelings. 🙂 Just remember, if you take off a meal, you'll need to look at the ingredients for that meal and cross them off of the shopping list.
- When you download the PDF below, you'll see that you can click on the recipes to go directly to the link. However, some meals are self-explanatory and don't have recipes linked.

Ok, I am obviously missing something. I downloaded the menu plan and understand that I need to either click the link or look the recipe up in my books to make my grocery list. However, the week 1 page has totally confused me… which meals do those list of ingredients make? It doesn’t look like it would correlate to Dinners 1-7 on your your menu list. Can you help me out?
Hi! Yes, it does correlate to days 1-7, but there is a 90 minute freezer cooking session on day 3. So this is a bigger list, with more ingredients, and there will be shorter shopping lists for the rest of the month.
Week one shopping list is all the meat just for one week?
Hi! If you look at the menu, you’ll see that there is a Freezer Cooking session in week 1. There are more details in the notes. 🙂
You are AWESOME! Thanks!
Thanks Nikki! I’m so glad you found this helpful!
I am so happy to have found your website!! I just got the book and cookbook and am slowly making my way through. I was curious, if you don’t mind my asking, how much do you spend on food a month? Again, thank you for all your amazing posts on TMH!!!!!
Yay, I’m so glad you got the cookbook! I love it! I spend about $900 per month for my family of seven. I go over that when my kids have growth spurts. I know some people spend WAY less, and I think it depends on where you live. I also just don’t have time for couponing, but I bet I could save a little more there, too. I used to spend about $1100 a month before we started THM, so I feel pretty good about eating whole, healthy foods that are gluten-free and saving money on THM.
Obviously, that should have been THM – I’m clearly too excited. LOL!!
