Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 26)

A healthy week of dinners planned out to make life easy!

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan Week 26. You may notice Picadillo is back on my rotation this week. It’s one of my kids favorite recipes so I make it often. Leftovers are wonderful in quesadillas, tacos, empanadas and just about anything you can think of!

Pictured below 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.
