Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 32)

A healthy week of dinners planned in the Skinnytaste Meal Planner. Week 32

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 32). This week you will find some light and quick recipes to make your week easier as the days get longer and the temperature gets hotter! Gardens are already producing (and your local farmer’s markets too!), so always include fresh produce when possible. I’m also obsessed with the California Shrimp Stacks so I’m putting those back into rotation.

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 32)

Pictured above 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
