Skinnytaste Dinner Plan Week 3

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 3)
I’ve gotten such great feedback since launching The Skinnytaste Meal Planner and sharing a sample of my weekly dinner plan for the week, this is now going to be a Sunday ritual. I do all my food shopping on Sundays, but you can do what works best for you. 
We are a family of four, so leftovers usually get packed for lunch. This is just a guideline, you can choose just a few dishes or make them all. I am always testing out new dishes for the blog which I cook during the day (you can follow along on Snapchat, username Skinnytaste) so that is usually what I eat for lunch, and leftovers never goes to waste because I either freeze them for the month, pack them for lunch, or share with family, neighbors and friends (come on over!)
