Monthly Shopping – JUNE MENU

We try to eat as healthy as we can eliminating a lot of bread, sodium, and fried foods, but still eating hearty meals, which can be very challenging with an infant and a busy schedule. I try to plan meals I can prepare quickly or freeze for easy prep later. We also have one vegetarian/meatless and one breakfast dinner every week. I find most of my meal ideas on Pinterest, Spark Recipes, All Recipes, or in my own recipe box and favorite cookbooks. Recipes that are not linked are written out at the end of this post.

Below is my menu for this month. The meals with the * at the end, are meals that will have leftovers for lunch or breakfast.
