Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 38)

ST_Weekly_Meal_Template_week_38

Skinnytaste Dinner (Plan Week) 38. I can’t believe that it is already August!!! Where does the summer go? I know I shouldn’t complain since in our area we don’t go back to school til after Labor Day, and I know some of you are already back in school! Let’s make the most of the summer we have left!

Meal Planner

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
