Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 42)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 42)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 42).  With the onset of fall comes cooler days, apple picking, crock pot meals and football! If your house is a football house make sure you check out the Party Apps link to see great, healthy recipes for all the big games!

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.
