Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 40)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 40)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 40). So things are getting pretty crazy around here, many of you may have seen that I finally had my new cookbook in my hands for the first time! I hope everyone saw this sneak peak video I posted and I hope you all are as excited as I am!

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
