Healthy Weekly Meal Plan

Your Healthy Weekly Meal Plan is here for you! A week's worth of healthy, easy, weeknight meals.

Happy Friday guys! I'm actually writing this late Thursday night, since we had an event at Elle's school this evening, which threw things off just a bit. We're in the full swing of fall and school and routine, which is good, but also exhausting. 

I find myself dreading the time change that's coming in a few weeks, and the resulting DARK evenings that will inevitably follow. The upside of this time of year, though, is that it marks the beginning of the holiday season.

We're pretty excited about Halloween, Elle in particular, as she can't wait to wear her sparkly pink fairy princess costume as much as possible. We hosted a pumpkin carving party last week (you can find the recap and menu, along with all the make-ahead recipes in here) so we had an excuse to get together with friends and so that Elle could wear her costume. It's the little things. Cheers to a wonderful weekend and a great week. 

Now, on to the meal plan!
