Stay on plan while traveling with this free and easy THM beach vacation meal plan.
Staying on plan when you are out of town can be difficult. But with a tiny bit of planning and this THM beach vacation meal plan you can lose weight with your toes in the sand.
I had a week off work planned and our original plans got COVID cancelled. Moping and feeling sorry for myself for several weeks is probably the biggest understatement of the year. Followed by some guilt because obviously a cancelled vacation is such a minor issue compared to the things that have happened to so many people during this pandemic.
But I’m human and I couldn’t help be disappointed in our plans falling through. So on Tuesday my husband & I booked a condo for the fam and headed down to the beach for some much needed fun (6 ft apart)!
This is totally not my normal personality. I think I’ve only done one spontaneous thing in my life, make that 2 now. I’m a planner. I like to look for a condo in October and book it. Then I spend months planning activities, meals and things that we need to pack with us.
A 3 day jump on a beach trip is just not normal for me but I was willing to do whatever to go. And sticking to the Trim Healthy Mama plan was one thing that I wanted to do during the vacation week.
If you are wanting to stick 100% on plan during your vacation, follow along to see how I prepped & everything that I ate for the week.

THM Beach Vacation Meal Plan
The day that we decided to book a beach condo, I started a THM meal plan. The next day I did a grocery pick up at our local store to work on a little meal prep for the week.
I planned a few breakfast options, a few lunch options and 7 dinners. The reason that I didn’t do 7 breakfasts is because we don’t mind repeating a couple of breakfasts over a week. For lunches, I like to have a couple of fresh ideas and then we ate leftovers the other times.
THM Meal Plan Overview
Here are the meals I planned for our THM beach vacation meal plan.
– Sausage Balls
– Oatmeal + Fruit
– Boiled Eggs
– Green Smoothies
– Pimento Cheese & Celery
– Charcuterie Board
– Broccoli Salad
– Tortilla Pizza
– Grilled Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli
– Shrimp Boil
– Grilled Chicken Fajitas
– Parmesan Crusted Grouper
– Cheeseburger Salad
Vacation Meal Prep – Before You Leave
Time was very limited for me before we left for vacation. So I wanted to make the most out of my THM Meal prep and the things that I packed from home.
Here are the things that I did at home:
- Made Sausage Balls (2 Batches) & froze
- Grilled a tray of taco chicken for the fajitas and grilled some lightly seasoned chicken for the Chicken Alfredo Night. Sliced and froze the cooked chicken for easy meals on vacay.
- Sliced bell peppers and onions for fajitas and froze.
- Blended a Zucchini for a chocolate trimtastic cake and froze.
- Mixed all dry ingredients for a trimtastic cake and placed in a ziplock bag.
- Boiled eggs to take with us to eat for breakfast on our drive down.
- Made deli meat roll ups on low carb tortillas to eat for lunch on the road.
THM Beach Vacation Meal Ideas & Portions
Here is the photo diary portion of this post. You can see exactly what was on my meal every day of my 7 day beach trip. We ate in every night, partly because of COVID and partly because dining out with little kids is not fun!
Please forgive all the paper plates and cell phone photos. I wanted to relax on my trip and dishes and pulling out my camera didn’t fit that bill.
Also, I don’t always eat so many S helper or planned XO. However, it was vacation and I wanted to live a little. And spoiler alert, I still came home 2 lbs lighter than when I went! Whoo hoo!

Lunch (S): Leftover grouper, leftover broccoli salad. This was going to be a XO because I’m on vacation and wanted to enjoy a little food freedom but I didn’t end up eating the potato on my plate so it ended up just being an S.
So funny story. I didn’t not eat the potatoes because my willpower is awesome. I told my husband, “wow these potatoes got super hard overnight in the fridge. It is like they weren’t even cooked.” Uhm – because they weren’t cooked! I forgot that I had chopped the extra potatoes thinking that I would could them the next day for the kids.
So I put some nice rock hard, uncooked potatoes on my plate! That is one way to avoid your planned XO.
