Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 6)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 6)

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a great week. I’m back from Charleston, SC where I was shooting part one of my new cookbook. What a beautiful city, I ate at some really great restaurants and enjoyed getting to know the city. I will be going back in March to shoot part two which I am looking forward to, but it feels good to be back home cooking again and back to my gym routine.

Also, I started tracking my Weight Watchers points again this week, I like the idea of doing it before the holidays to keep me on track. It’s been a great week!

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 6)

This is week six of sharing my weekly dinner plan since launching The Skinnytaste Meal Planner. I usually do all my food shopping on Sundays, but you can do what works best for you. Leftovers are often eaten the next day if the meal is large or packed up for everyone’s lunch. If you are using your meal planner I would love to see what your week looks like, share using hashtag #theskinnytastemealplan
