Shrinking Menu Plan – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


We are two weeks in to this new year and I know that most of us have not done everything “exactly as we think we should” so it’s time for True Confessions – Two Weeks In. So if  you have done EVERYTHING EXACTLY THE WAY YOU PLANNED over the past two weeks just kindly move along, […]

Who’s one? Well, it’s actually a WHAT. It’s our sister site, Shrinking Kitchen’s, first birthday today! Over at Shrinking Kitchen, we’re celebrating our ‘cookiversary’ with some fun giveaways – one for each week of February. If you’ve never visited Shrinking Kitchen before, you’re in for a treat – we’ve got over 250 healthy recipes and […]

As difficult as it is to believe, Thanksgiving is now less than two weeks away for those of us here in the U.S.  How is that even possible?!  This year has just flown by it seems.  Given it’s so close, it’s definitely time to start thinking about Thanksgiving cooking and menu planning. For those of […]

It hasn’t really been very wintry here in west/central Texas this year, but nonetheless, I still LOVE soup in the winter time! This week I’m going to give you 5 tasty soups to try. Make one or make them all. Double the recipe and freeze some for later. Soups are great! Corn, Bacon, And Potato […]

MONDAY:  Three Cheese Manicotti. TUESDAY: Enchilada Casser-Ole! WEDNESDAY: Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes and Olives. THURSDAY: Shrimp Sandwich Wrap with Curry Yogurt and Spinach.

SNACKS: POM-Banana-Strawberry Smoothies! Skinny Chocolate […]

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 […]

Hello fine readers. How are you this beautiful (at least I hope it’s beautiful where you are) Sunday morning? Are you drinking your coffee and making out your grocery list? Well that’s convenient because if you look below, there a mess of healthy recipes and a grocery list. I know you have better things to […]

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s New Year’s Day and we have  brand new challenge starting TODAY? That’s right. Check back here around lunchtime (you know, when that hangover is starting to fade), and get all the awesome details! Sunday, January 1st – Chili – my husband’s secret recipe. And real Texas Chili does […]

This week’s menu plan is brought to us by Jen from Listen.Learn.Love.Mend. If you’re interested in menu planning for the Sisterhood, give us a shout in the comments! We love guest menu planners! Shrinkers, I have been absent from the menu planning lately! When last I was here, I was still Jen in Real Life […]

In honor of the new PointsPlus 2012 program update rolling out this week from Weight Watchers (learn even more about the changes here from the CEO), we thought this would be a great time to share a Weight Watchers menu as part of our on-going Shrinking Menu Planning series.  I don’t think it’s any secret […]

Good morning! How was your Thanksgiving? Are you feeling stuffed and ready to settle back into your routine? Yes? These recipes will help you get rid of that post-Thanksgiving bloat {and get rid of some of those leftovers taking up space in your fridge}! MONDAY: Turkey soup! Instead of the half-and-half, try a lighter cream! […]

This week, our Shrinking Menu Plan aims to keep the tightness of your jeans in check. There’s no reason you can’t have all of your turkey day favorites, and eat them too! These are recipes we’ve featured here at the Sisterhood in years past – can you believe it’s almost our THREE year Shrinkaversary!? Yes, […]

I have to be honest, I’m not very good at menu planning every week.  The two times I have done since we started this segment at Shrinking Jeans have been awesome weeks of eating at our house.  All the other weeks that I have not done it have still been yummy weeks of eating but […]

We have a fabulous guest poster letting us peek into her everyday meals this week! She may be one of our most distant sisters, but she has been one of our biggest supporters for many years! I just love her! You can also find Karena at Traveling Well, her personal blog. The easy way to […]

This week’s menu plan includes recipes with short ingredient lists (which I adore) promising to pack a huge flavor punch! If you have kids, they’ll probably adore the Ravio-sange, and I have a feeling the Apple Crockpot Pork Chops will be a huge hit as well! If you plan your menu out and post it […]
