Meal Plan Monday: 8/11-8/17/14


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.

This week I'm trying to avoid going to the grocery store if at all possible. I overspent at the grocery store the last few weeks in hopes of restocking the pantry and freezer a bit. All the meals I'm making this week are made with ingredients that I already have on a hand, or are being picked in our garden this week. Zucchini anyone??? I've had to get a little creative this week, but that always keeps things exciting!

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