Menu Plan Your Butt Off | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Happy Sunday!! Here is a delicious meal plan I put together just for you….well, just for me to share with you! Choose the whole plan and just print out the handy shopping list (you’ll have nothing to think about!), or just pick and choose a thing or two. All of these recipes sound great, so you can’t go wrong.

Link up below in the comments and share you own menu plan with us!

This Week’s Meals:

Monday, January 16th – Red Lentil Soup with Turnip and Parsley. It just sounds simple, clean and easy. And after the weekend I had, I really need simple, clean, and easy. IJS.

Tuesday, January 17th – Soy-Ginger Salmon –  We all need a little more salmon in our lives. It’s so amazingly good for you. This recipe says it serves 2, but to lighten it up, divide it into 4 servings, add some brown rice or quinoa, and a ton of steamed veggies and maybe these yummy sweet potatoes.

Wednesday, January 18th – Asian Ground Beef, Mushroom, and Broccoli Slaw Lettuce Cups. That’s a mouthful of yumminess. I haven’t made these before, but from the comments left on the post, everyone was really happy with the recipe! (I wasn’t sure what coconut aminos were, so I googled it. It looks like it’s a soy-free type of soy sauce….)

Thursday, January 19th – Leftover extravaganza!

Friday, January 20th – Ground Turkey with Potatoes and Spring Peas. This just sounds amazing. And pretty easy. Since I’m not sure I’ll find spring peas fresh, I will opt to use frozen peas. I think it’ll be fine! And this is a one dish type of meal, so no need for side dishes in my opinion (and maybe room for a little dessert?).

Saturday, January 21st – Kitchen’s Closed! Time to take Mama out for dinner.

Sunday, January 22nd – A good old fashioned pot roast. Nothing fancy here. Just a huge hunk of delicious beef (with visible fat trimmed), chopped onions, smashed garlic, new potatoes, and carrots. Toss it all together in a pot (or crockpot) and voila. As an added extra bonus, your house will smell divine all day long.


  • Chobani Apple Cinnamon Yogurt. Seriously to die for. My kids and I fight over it.
  • apples – Honey Crisp are my favorite
  • Clementine oranges – I keep a big bowl of them on the table for quick snacks – they are so easy to peel.


THESE lemon bars. I bought some beautiful meyer lemons (I love lemons!) at Whole Foods, and I think this is a perfect way to use a couple of them.
