It feels a little incongruous to be posting healthy ANYTHING when I’ve literally baked over 9 dozen cookies today. But….balance??

Or something like that.

Hope you’re all enjoying the holiday weekend and find some inspiration in this week’s meal plan to do some healthy eating over the next few days. You know, in between cookie bites.
