Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!). My goal is to get the cost down, but this currently totals around $250 (shopping mostly sale items and/or using cartwheel coupons when shopping at Target)….

Individual BBQ Chicken Pizzas

It may be Winter, but in California we have days that feel like Spring or Summer that like to pop up when it’s suppose to be chilly.  On these warmer days, I like to make lighter meals.  Here’s a quick dish that everyone in my house loves.  Individual BBQ chicken pizzas made with Naan bread….

Corndog Muffins

My kiddos love corndogs, I’m not the biggest fan due to the amount of processing and added junk.

Ranch Turkey Roll Ups

Anything but Sandwiches… kid-tested, mom-approved

Unfortunately for me, my kiddos aren’t really into sandwiches (yay, they make it so easy, right ?!?!?) So I’ll post a few lunches that are “kid approved.” Here are some examples of non-sandwich lunches that I’ve been given the “thumbs up” of approval on. Note:  Many of these can be made in bulk and frozen…
