This week’s meal plan is all about fresh and easy summer food! Trust me, you’re going to love the simplicity, vibrancy, and the deliciousness of all these flavorful meals!

My Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan and Lemon and my recipe for The BEST Broccoli Salad are always crowd-pleasers, too!

Also, if you didn’t catch my Banana Chickpea Ice Cream this week, it is simply sensational! You’ll just have to trust me on the beans!

And now for the food! I hope you enjoy this week’s meal plan. As always, let me know if you have any questions or requests.
