Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 24)

ST_Weekly_Meal_Template_week_24

Hope everyone’s having a great weekend! I’m here in Charleston, SC  finishing the final photos for The Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook. I’m heading back to NY tonight and have my meals already planned for the week. After enjoying lots of great meals here in Charleston, I am ready to get back on track cooking and exercising.

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 25)

Week 24 of sharing my weekly dinner plans.  Pictured above is The Skinnytaste Meal Planner where I plan my dinners for the week (you can of course use any meal planner). Meal planning is a great way to get organized before heading to the supermarket to get ready for the week! My breakfast is usually something quick like eggs with fruit, a smoothie or avocado toast. We’re a family of four, so if a recipe serves more, it’s either packed up for everyone’s lunch or eaten the next day as leftovers. If you would like to see some of the previous week’s dinner plans, click here
