Healthy Meal Plan Volume 6

Each week I use the same template but switch up the meal ideas a bit according to what is on sale. Here is a fun and fresh healthy meal plan Volume 6 with quick and easy weeknight dinners that kids love!

This week I went for a more clean and fresh eating vibe as the weather is turning nice(er) here in New England and the kids want to play outside and who wants to eat heavy wintery food right now?
