Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 7)

 Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 7)

Happy
Sunday! This is week seven (7) of sharing my weekly dinner plans since launching The Skinnytaste Meal Planner. I’ve had such positive feedback from all of you that I will be doing this every Sunday.

 Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 7)

A few things I would love to talk about first, if you follow Skinnytaste on Facebook, you may not be seeing my posts thanks to Facebook’s algorithm changes. Basically, they want me to pay for you to see what I post. So to be sure you never miss a new recipe, please sign up for my free email or follow me on Instagram (or both)!

I mentioned last week I started tracking my points on Weight Watchers again and it’s been going great. They’ve invited me to be a part of something very special but it’s all top secret so I can’t talk about it yet… but all good things are coming soon!

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 would like to see some of the previous weeks, here they are:
