Spaghetti and meatballs is one of my favorite meals for fall it’s easy, and filling. While trying to live a healthier lifestyle, I cut calories when I can. I use wheat noodles, make my own sauce, and recently, learning how to make my own low calorie meatballs. These meatballs are full of flavor and super yummy! For a spaghetti dish with 5 meatballs and sauce is about 211 calories, perfect way to indulge without really indulging right? Haha!

Menu Plan: Week of September 9th

Menu Plan: Week of September 9th

menuMeal Planning is a great idea for anyone, and it works great for me and my family! I love that menu planning makes my week less hectic, and also keeps me from buying things I don’t need from the grocery store. Every Sunday, me and my family sit down and decide what we want for dinner for the week. Jaiden, my 5 year old, loves this process because she feels like she really has a say in what goes on during dinner time in or house. It’s a great way to make sure everyone in the house is happy!
