“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: April 5-11

"Real Food Meets Reality" Menu Plan

A major key to eating healthier and saving money is meal planning. When I plan my meals, I feel less stress throughout the week, spend less time and money at the grocery store, and usually serve my family a fairly well-rounded diet throughout the week. My hope is that my mostly “real food” meal plans each Saturday will help you do the same!

P.S. Please don’t feel overwhelmed when you look at my plan. I certainly do NOT get to all of my plans each week. I do what I can with the time I have and then we eat a lot of leftovers.
