Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 39)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 39)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 39).  The weather is still hot here in New York, so plenty of grilling and salads on the menu. Also taking advantage of summer seasonal peppers, tomatoes and corn.

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
