Hello fellow meal planners!!
To keep life easy, I have put together a meal plan for you that is summer-perfect and healthy. No hot ovens, just fresh salads, grilled goodies and delicious sides.
I know the word "healthy" means something different to everyone, but for this meal plan, healthy simply means using fresh vegetables and good sources of protein, without processed ingredients and added sugars.
These are dinners to take you through the week, with the exception of one night which should be for fun night out.
Recently I was taking a walk through my neighborhood and noticed that almost all the houses had their blinds shut using blackout shades - something that has truly boggled my mind for years.
Why don't people want to let the light in? It's true that everyone needs a little vitamin D in their healthy diet, so why not our homes as well?
Vitamin D can improve our mood, support the health of our immune system and maintain the health of our bones and skin.
A few years ago, I would order out for lunch every day, leading to a terrible looking bank account and a terrible feeling all over my body.
I quickly realized that something had to change, so I overhauled my whole routine and started devoting time each weekend to preparing for the week ahead. I taught myself how to cook again, prep grocery lists and make lunches for the whole week in one day.

Here are my recommendations on how to stay on budget at the grocery store:
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!
