This weeks meal plan is a little heartier because my husband will be home more. He ended up not being home as much last week as expected so I have some roll-over meals. The meals I made last week and enjoyed were put into a board on Pinterest so you can always go check those out. I am leaving a link to each meal so just click on the name, they are also on Pinterest.
I have really been trying to make healthier meals that the family will eat. I have succeeded in making healthier meals but now I need to try to make the meals more budget friendly. I used to make real simple or not so healthy meals. Why does healthy food have to cost so much?! I told my family we need to either stop eating fresh produce or stop eating meat. I'm thinking I will try to cut down on the meats and find less expensive protein sources. As you will notice, we also don't like eating the same meal without quite a bit of time in between, other than left overs anyway.
