Looks like a secret code, huh?

I apologize to my other readers, but this post is aimed just at my THM readers. If any of this sounds good to you, I highly recommend checking out the book.

I get frustrated trying to come up with on plan meals that are also good for our WIC items. So I went through the book and made myself a list of recipes that can be done without buying added ingredients (with the exception of a few that I always have on hand, like vanilla). I did not include recipes that require meat, but there are some that would be better with the meat.

(Note: To save money, scrambled eggs can often be added to meat without changing the taste. This works well with ground turkey and ground hamburger in particular.)

Much to my relief, they are not all breakfast meals! They do not require special ingredients. And because I love you all so much, here is my list. Hope it helps!
