Solving the Dinner Dilemma

I don’t know about you, but if I’m not super organized at the beginning of the week, when 5:00PM rolls around, I struggle every night! That’s why I try to get a weekly meal plan finalized before I do my weekend shopping for the following week. This makes things SO. MUCH. EASIER!

Your life just got a whole lot easier! These THRIVE AT FIVE Meal Plans will be posted each Friday at 6:00 AM ET!

Each week I will post a week’s worth of meals with seasonal ingredients. That way, ingredients aren’t just easy to find, but cheaper because they’re in-season! With 8 of us coming together on this meal plan, you’ll be sure to make the most of your seasonal ingredients, and maybe even try a few new dishes along the way.

Let’s get started!
