June Real Food Monthly Meal Plan from The More With Less Mom

June brings a few holidays, including Father's Day, Hug Your Cat Day, International Fairy Day, and the summer solstice. For us it brings the end of the school year.

June Real Food Monthly Meal Plan from The More With Less Mom

Ideas and resources for menu planning in June, many seasonal spring and summer and real food recipes. Very simple ingredients, from scratch. As always, these are all frugal recipes intended for a tight budget. Real food/from scratch/traditional diet/nutrient dense/whole food/blah blah blah.

*Attention real food purists/whole foodies - the recipes I link/pin are all from scratch, but some of them you may have to make substitutions or modifications. For example, I link recipes that have sugar, but you can substitute whatever your favorite sweetener is.
