December is a great month to throw care to the wind and wing it with meals. It’s also a month where if you plan a bit, you’ll feel far less guilty splurging at parties and much better come January! For the December meal plan, I decided to plan out Monday – Friday each week. We have lots of parties and events, taking up most of our weekend time. I want to stick to as healthy as possible during the week, so that those events don’t set me back. It’s also a busy time of year with school events, basketball practices and prepping for Christmas. So I didn’t want to add anything to the menu that is difficult. Mostly dairy free, paleo-ish dishes that are easy! Lot’s of sheetpans, crockpots and super simple dishes, coming right up!
