Healthy Meal Plan Week #16 is ready to go! There are all sorts of goodies in this week’s meal plan… healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner and even a snack and dessert recipe too!
It’s Saturday! And I know that you know what that means. 😉 Healthy Weekly Meal Plan time! For me it also means football. Yup. My oldest son’s team plays in the regional semi-finals today! We have to drive to Riverside which is about and hour and a half away. Our team (The Grizzlies) are undefeated and won the Los Angeles County Championship on Halloween. If they win this game and the next, they’ll go to Florida for the big finals. I guess the team they play today is really good so I’m nervous for them! Wish him luck!
And of course you know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. In just a few weeks we will be deep into roasted turkey, stuffing and more pies than you can count! This is the time of year it can be so hard to keep track of all the school events, family get togethers and the beginning of holiday parties. The last thing on your mind is creating easy, wholesome meal plans for your family.
Not to worry! We have done it for you! This week we are all about easy dinners that explore the flavors of the season. We have delicious soups and stews, casseroles and salads! We are using ingredients like roasted butternut squash, wild rice, back beans, and roasted chicken!
