I love healthy meal plans but I haven’t been meal planning lately. My two youngest kids were traveling to see their cousins for two weeks so I was free! I had my first grader but she is super easy. She could eat the same thing all the time if I let her. I think the one meal we loved was the organic frozen cheese pizza from Trader Joe’s. Super quick, inexpensive and really good! So now I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and getting this meal plan out to you all is my first step.
Meal plan for sanity! And take ME time whenever you can!
