Hi Everybody! It's been a little while since I shared a meal plan with you. Well, I'm back with a GREAT dinner meal plan this week. When you're busy, you want quick and easy recipes. Right? Well, this plan includes several recipes your family is sure to love. I know mine does.
I have been a little slack lately when it comes to meal planning. My wallet can attest to that. I can wholehearted now say that meal planning saves my family money on groceries and going out to eat. Without a meal plan, I'm more apt to say, “Let's just go out to eat.” With a family of 5, that really adds up. Plus I've found myself overbuying at the grocery store too. So it's time to get back on the bandwagon and start meal planning again. It's you've been a little slack too, join me and we'll start planning together. It's always more fun with friends anyway.
All the recipes in me meal plans feature real food ingredients and are pretty healthy. You can call it “Clean Eating” because I'm not using processed ingredients. The bread and noodles I buy only have a few ingredients and no preservatives. I want to feed my family the best food possible. For me that means, no artificial anything.
For more weekly meal plans, please check out this Clean Eating Meal Planner. It has every meal plan ever shared on Little Family Adventure.
Here's the plan for this week. I hope you enjoy it!
