Here is my meal plan for the week complete with recipe links, a grocery list, tips and tricks! I hope this is helpful as you begin to plan out your week!

I did not include spices that most people have in their pantries in the grocery list – just FYI! I’ve included ideas for a make-ahead breakfast and lunch that can be eaten throughout the week, as well as 5 dinners. Feel free to switch up the order or only make a few…this is just meant to be inspiration! 🙂
