Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 50)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 50)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 50). Wow! We have now been doing the weekly meal plans for almost a year! I hope everyone finds them helpful and takes advantage of them! So it seems the holiday countdown is officially underway, an advertisement on the radio today said there are only six (6) weekends left before Christmas!!!!!!!! I don’t know about you but that put me into a bit of a panic mode! Some more ideas for your Thanksgiving table….Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters, Lightened up Green Bean Casserole, Brussels Sprouts Gratin, and one of my all time favorites Mom’s Stuffing, Lightened Up.

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
