Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 86)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 86).  I can’t believe that summer is starting to wind down and that in many areas schools are already back in session! Good luck to all of you who have started or are getting ready to start school! Hope everyone has a great week!

The Skinnytaste Meal Planner is 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
