Free 7-Day Healthy Meal Plan (January 1-7)

2024!!! Can you believe that?? I feel like this year has flown by! I am so grateful for all the memories I have made, new experiences, and as always – family and friends. Thank you all for being such a big part of my year (and my life!) as well.

I always like New Year’s traditions – what does your family eat for good luck on January 1st? Pork, cabbage and turnips are all said to be on the menu, showing the “path forward” and the color green symbolizes “money and prosperity”. Black-eyed peas also symbolize wealth and one of my favorite recipes is this easy black-eyed pea dip. No matter what traditions your family believes in, I wish you all a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!

With grocery prices on the rise, many of us are having to adapt, cut back, and/or get more creative with our meals. One of the absolute best ways to stay within budget and maintain healthy eating habits is a meal plan.
