Happy Easter, friends!

Even with the egg dying, Sunday morning services, and family meals, we still have to plan ahead for the next couple weeks. Ready to meal plan? Awesome, let’s get to it.

This meal plan is created to be as resourceful as possible. From reusing chicken meat and bones to using the same veggies and spices to recreate multiple meals. There are no fancy or complicated ingredients, just real food meals made with real food ingredients you may already have stocked in your pantry, fridge, and freezer.

This meal plan is not gluten-free. If you are looking for a fabulous gluten-free meal plan with a shopping list, I encourage you to check out the Nourishing Home. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking for a meal plan on a strict budget, I recommend checking out We Got Real’s monthly frugal meal plans.

If you are interested in learning more about the logistics of meal planning, you can read more here.

I don’t include lunches in this meal plan, as we often eat leftovers. If you want to want lunch ideas, you can find my huge resource and video of over 50 recipes, here.
