Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 19)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 19)

Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is having a wonderful March.

I’ll be away most of this week, I’m headed to Charleston, SC to do a book signing this Sunday at the Charleston Wine + Food festival #CHSWFF from 2-2:45pm. If anyone’s in town, please come by and say hello! I’m also shooting the second half of my cookbook, so I’ve shared a meal plan for the week I’ve created for my family to cook easy meals while I am gone. 

This is week 19 of sharing my weekly dinner plans. I use The Skinnytaste Meal Planner pictured below to plan my dinners for the week (you can of course use any meal planner).

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 19)

52-week meal planner, food tracker and exercise tracker in one. I’ve
included the Smart Points next to the recipes since I am currently on
Weight Watchers. Also, if you have The Skinnytaste Cookbook, and currently on Weight Watchers, I have all the Smart Points listed here for your convenience.

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.
