The Easiest Week of Meal Planning You’ll Ever Need

Week 7 Meal Plan

With the right meal plan, you can save big $ at the grocery store,
and still eat healthy.

I'm so excited for this meal plan!  So simple, so easy and such delicious results.  I managed to stay under budget at the store this week and we had fresh, nutritious meals every single day!  By giving you simple ingredient combinations rather than full fledged recipes, it makes life easier for everyone.  You can easily sub in something else if you prefer a different type of ingredient, and everything is meat free this week (with the exception of eggs and fish), with a huge emphasis on in-season produce.  I hope you enjoy the easiest meal plan you'll ever need!
