It’s Sunday…the day of rest. So the last thing you probably want to do today is plan your dinners for the week then venture out to the market. Am I right? Well, I can help. Not with the actual shopping or cooking. But with the planning.
Yeah, I can totally help with that.
Welcome to Menu Plan Your Butt Off, where we take the guesswork out of planning healthful meals! Each week we painstakingly plot out a healthy menu plan of dinners and a bonus dessert (because we all need at LEAST one dessert a week) so you don’t have to! Even better? There’s a printable grocery list. So all you have to do is print up the list, trot off to the store and you’re set.
So what are you waiting for? Have a look at all the deliciousness! If this menu isn’t your thing, we have a huge archive of healthy menu plans over here, so you’re sure to find something to suit your palate.
With that, I bid you adieu…and happy cooking! See you next week!
