Weekly Meal Planning #1

Why hello there! I hope this finds you all enjoying a wonderful start to your week.

After being snowed in for the past few days, it’s been nice to get back to a routine and reality… which includes meal planning. But seriously… Nashville hasn’t seen this much snow in 13 years – I was in heaven ­čÖé

I’m sharing our meal plan for the week to hopefully inspire others to plan ahead for healthy success. I’ll post our meal plans as often as possible, with links to recipes we use and more.

Grant was a rockstar and did all of our veggie meal prep this week! Chop up a variety of veggies, place on cookie sheets lined with foil, drizzle EVOO + S&P, and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until tender and slightly browned.
