menu plan balance your meals and your budget

I’m having a lot of fun testing out free weight loss apps and I’m realizing that having all the tools and information in front of me makes it a lot easier to make sure we’re eating balanced meals. I love that by shopping the sale ads, we can all eat healthier but still stick to our weekly budget. It doesn’t hurt when staples like quinoa end up free with coupons!
