Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 88)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 88). Adding some easy meals to the list plus one of my family’s favorite – Breaded Pork Cutlets with Lime. If you haven’t tried this I highly recommend it! If you don’t eat pork, chicken would work. And with so much basil still in my garden, we LOVE the tomato soup, hope you do too!

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, 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
