Another week, another meal plan.  If you follow us on Instagram than you know that I am in full freezer meal prep mode to get us ready for summer.  I’m doubling most everything I’m cooking lately and freezing it to use later.  This method of freezer cooking is super simple and doesn’t require a ton of time, my favorite!
*Quick reminder:  The very special May promotion that Young Living is running ends on the 31st.  Just a few more days to sign up for your premium starter kit and get a free 15 ml bottle of Tangerine oil!  You can read more about the starter kit and the promotion in THIS POST

 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 this week I made a batch of sourdough english muffins (they are quickly becoming our new favorite) *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.
