Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 96)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 96)
Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 96). I’ve added some comfort food dishes old and new to the meal plan this week! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

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.
