A one-week dairy-free meal plan including a daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack for the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle.
I love cheese.
I could probably eat cheese with every meal!
And while cheese is on-plan for Trim Healthy Mama (THM), I’ve found that sometimes I need to give my body a break.
So this week I’ve put together a complete meal plan for myself (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snack) that’s dairy-free.
And since we’re friends, I’m sharing it with you!
After all, that’s what friends do, right?
Why Try Dairy Free?
Let me explain: I weigh myself daily.
I started doing this when I began Trim Healthy Mama.
Always in the morning before I’ve eaten or drank any water for the day.
I like keeping an eye on what my body is doing. And because of this, I’ve learned that my weight may fluctuate 1-3 pounds from one day to the next.
Lots of things factor into that fluctuation: hormones, water retention, sodium intake, etc.
As long as the scale returns to my low point at some point during the week, then I know it’s just the normal fluctuation.
Over the past 3 weeks? I’m not bouncing back to that low.
Which lets me know I need to shake things up a bit.
I took a look at what I’ve been eating and noticed a few trends: not only was there a lot of cheese in my meals, I’ve also been relying on Greek yogurt and cottage cheese for protein.
They’re easy grab-and-go options.
Frankly, I’ve been in a bit of a rut.
And the upwards creep on the scale is showing me I need to change things up.
One thing that I’ve learned from Trim Healthy Mama is my body really needs variety.
So this week I’m giving my body a little shakeup by eliminating dairy.
