Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 64)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 64)

We are having some unbelievably warm weather this week, feels like Spring so I am grilling some this week, Shawarma-Spiced Grilled Chicken with Garlic Yogurt and North African Spiced Shrimp and Chickpea Salad. Also on the menu is a comfort food staple in my home, Filipino Adobo Chicken which I am going to test out in my Instant Pot! And some more favorites, Cauliflower “Fried Rice” with shrimp to make it a meal, and Blackened Chicken Fiesta Salad which I will make for my husband and I, I’ll leave out the blackened spice for Madison.

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, 4-ingredent pancakes, 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
