Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 67)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 67)

Hope everyone had a great week! I got some exciting news this week, the Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook was nominated for a James Beard Award in the category of Book/Health. This was so unexpected, I’m so humbled and grateful! Heather Christo and Ellie Krieger were also nominated, and since I love Heather’s recipe for Rosemary Chicken Salad with Avocado and Bacon I’ve added that to this week’s meal plan along with a few favorites.

 

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.
