Are you looking for a simple to follow FREE monthly meal plan that allows you to loose weight without having to prepare separate meals for your family? This is where my husband & I found ourselves. We knew we needed to drop weight, but we still wanted to eat health, nutritious, well balance real food.  We cut out flour and refined sugar and had amazing results dropping 20 lb the first month. So if you are trying to drop weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle – this menu is for you!
Note: I am not claiming to be a nutritionist or medical professional, this is just what worked for our family.

{free} Weekly Shopping List Printable

First off, because I know you are going to ask, where is the Menu {free} printable?  I know I usually have free printables for everything! But I think it will be more helpful to you if you just read the menu {this post} on your smart phone, ipad, or computer. All the recipes are hyperlinked for your convenience! {This is how I am cooking now too}

 

>> Healthy Family Menu Grocery Shopping Lists <<


You can also pull up your shopping list from your smart phone, but I know sometimes it is easier to print this off to add your own notes {things you already have, add’l household supplies you need, etc.} Each weekly shopping list contains everything you need to make the recipes that week.  Easy Peasy! If you notice a mistake, please let me know so I can fix it. Thanks

    1. Alina since so much of my food is seasonal I kinda figured people [our family included] would look at last year's August menu.

      But there will be new menus coming out in the future.... some healthy.... some freezer meals.... etc. =)
