I alternate between following the Trim Healthy Mama and Ketogenic diet plans but you can still find lots of healthy recipes on this website that fit with the THM lifestyle. All Ketogenic or “low-carb” recipes will fit in the “s” category of the THM plan.
This is one of the menu plans I used when I was following THM and it might free you from having to plan a menu one week.
Also of Note: the advice in this post is not intended to take place of reading the official Trim Healthy Mama book. To be a true expert in “Food Freedom”, the authors suggest you refer to their book: Trim Healthy Mama Plan Book and Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook**

Notes for the Themes Menu Plan
I included the times on my Monday menu just for reference, spacing my meals out to no closer than every three hours is important for proper digestion and metabolism. Everyone is different, that's why I follow a tweaked version of Serene and Pearl's Trim Healthy Mama style of eating.
I avoid gluten, so anywhere their recipe would call for a wheat product (like Joseph's tortillas – which I personally think are junk food) I make my own substituting as necessary. In addition, I also do very little dairy. Everyone has to go through trial and error to see what works for them as we are all different.
I eat a lot of Paleo-style meals, but I also have a huge collection of raw food recipe books, (more on my 2 years as a raw vegan) I like to try new recipes, but having little time and lotsa kids, I do have a bit of a routine about my cooking habits as well. We rarely eat out, but when we do I am ultra choosy about where we go, basing my snobbishness on where the restaurant gets the food on the menu, how they prepare it, and such (more on that later, as well.)
