Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 49)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 49)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 49).  I can’t believe there are less than 50 days until Christmas, this year is flying by! That also means that Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. Remember, even small healthy changes can have big results! When planning your Thanksgiving feast and parties,  keep in minds recipes like Slow Cooker Garlic Sweet Potato Mash, Lightened Up Green Bean Casserole with Shallot Crumb Topping and one of my favorites, Pumpkin Pie Dip. One of my best friends serves the dip in a small hallowed out pumpkin with apple slices and gingersnaps, beautiful presentation!

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
