It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a meal plan, though I recently shared my favorite tips for meal planning on Facebook Live.  It’s just now starting to feel like Fall so it’s time to start pulling out those warm comfort food recipes.

 And now for the meal plan…

Breakfasts: I keep the pantry stocked with basic breakfast items and we pick what we want each day.  We usually have homemade yogurt, cereal / granola and I made some muffin tin omelets for the week as well. *I have been pinning a lot of easy and healthy breakfast ideas to my “Breakfast and Lunch” Pinterest board, check it out for new ideas.

Lunches: I have a whole post with our strategies for packing healthy lunches plus it includes some of our favorite lunch ideas.  You can check it out HERE.

Dinners: I plan these out one for each night.  Typically we’ll have a “breakfast for dinner” night once a week, at least one meatless meal and one grain free meal.  I try to stick to traditional real food (no food dyes, artificial coloring, flavoring, or sweeteners)  I also try to make as much from scratch as possible, it is cheaper that way and I can control the type and source of my ingredients.
