Welcome to the Thrive At Five Weekly Meal Plan!
If knowing what to make for your family has utterly stressed out, then I am here to solve your dilemma! Each week I team up with an awesome group of bloggers who are dedicated to bringing you a healthy-ish, easy, seasonally appropriate meal plan that is developed specifically for busy families who want awesome food but are short on time!
Has weather been totally bonkers where you are? We were wearing shorts a few days ago, and then we were hit with a blizzard! And then all the snow melted by dinner time. Seriously – spring weather is crazy and sometimes it hard to know what to wear much less what to eat! This week’s meal plan is perfect no matter what the weather will be!
How It Works:
- Every Friday morning a new meal plan will be published with 5 dinners plus 2 extras (like a side, dessert, or special beverage). Come check it out as needed throughout the week or sign up here to have it sent directly to your email inbox!
- All the meals are perfect for busy families – they focus mostly on seasonal whole food dinners (but occasionally something “unhealthy” sneaks in – we aren’t super sticklers here). And desserts don’t count as healthy, because they just shouldn’t.
- Because these are seasonal meal plans based on the month of year, I will be numbering them 1,2,3, etc. based on what week of the month it is, so you will always be able to find awesome meals easily. Go HERE to find even more meal plans!
- I have listed them out Monday – Friday, but please look through your schedule and see which meals fit into your schedule the best!
