weekly meal plan (plus shopping list!): 5 breakfasts, lunches, snacks & dinners to get you through the work week #4

 

Fourth week of the Weekly Meal Plans for January!

Missed week one?  Find it here!

As I mentioned in my Instagram stories and my previous posts, I’ve tried to include more portion sizes and product recommendations per your requests.  Again however, 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!
