Welcome to the Thrive At Five Weekly Meal Plan!
If knowing what to make for your family has utterly stressed you out, then I am here to solve your dinner 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. The Thrive At Five Meal Plan is developed specifically for busy families who want awesome food but are short on time!
And just like that – its summer. The kiddos are out of school. The weather is getting warmer (well, kind of. It’s been in the low 70’s all week).
This week there is a lovely collection of easy and tasty meals from all around the world. Flavors are just exploding over here – but still family friendly and easy to make!
How It Works:
- Every Friday morning a new meal plan will be published with 5 dinners plus 2 extra recipes (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!
Here is your weekly meal plan for the first week of June (or anytime, really!)
