Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 70)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 70)

Happy Spring my friends! It’s been a crazy busy week, I was at the Indulge Conference in Austin, TX  and stayed at the Four Seasons. We ate breakfast there every morning, I had my first sweet, juicy Texas grapefruit!

When I wasn’t at the conference, the only thing on the agenda was to eat in as many great restaurants as we could in the short trip there. The first place on the list, of course was Torchy’s Tacos – a must for tacos and they have the BEST queso! I need to go back to try everything on the menu. A few other great restaurants that are a must if you visit: La Condesa and Elizabeth Street Cafe. Such a great city, and so many more places I want to try.

Back to meal planning. 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. Have a great week!
