Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 51)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 51)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 51). This week is Thanksgiving and I am truly blessed. I am so thankful for my family, the health of my children and of course all of you here at Skinnytaste who, because of you, allow me to have the best job in the world. I wish you and your family a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!

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
