Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 54)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 54)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 54).  The final countdown is almost here! Are you ready? This entire week I’m giving away some fabulous gifts for a 7 Days of Giving giveaway PLUS the Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook with each prize. The winner will get TWO, one for you and one for your loved one! So far Day 1 we have Delallo Best of Italy Collection, it’s not too late to enter, Day 2 the awesome prize is a Nespresso Vertuoline, link here. Stay tuned all week on Facebook and Instagram to see the new prizes!

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
