Meal Plan Monday: 6/23-6/29/14


Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first. Wondering what all the letters (S, E, FP) mean after each meal? Check this out. I've also added page numbers if the recipe comes from the Trim Healthy Mama book. If you're still in search of even more meals or drinks take a look at my top 30 "E" mealsmy top 30 "S" meals and my 20 favorite shakes, smoothies and cold drinks. Also, be sure to follow me on Pinterest so you never miss a meal plan, tip or recipe.

Don't have time to read it all now? Pin it for later.

In an attempt to keep my house cooler this week, I challenged myself to come up with dinner meals that are made on the grill or cooked in the Crock Pot. I've always loved making meals in the Crock Pot but for some reason I never think to use it in the summer. Plus for an added bonus, less clean up and dishes to wash!
