Missed weeks one and two?  Catch up here!

Just want to reiterate what I mentioned in my Instagram stories: I’ve tried to include more portion sizes but please, please, pleeeaase know that this meal plan is not meant to be prescriptive, it’s more a way to inspire you to get in the kitchen and give you some ideas for balanced meals.  Add and subtract to this plan as needed to meet YOUR individual needs!

Don’t forget that if you make a meal from any of the Weekly Meal Plansshare it using #caitsplatemealplan so I can see or send me a message letting me know what you liked or didn’t like!
