Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 9.19.15

A healthy weekly meal plan with printable grocery list. Featuring southwestern stew, a veggie stir-fry and enchilada pasta!

Another Saturday, another healthy weekly meal plan!

Today you’ll find five healthy dinner ideas for this coming week – we’re talking sweet potatoes, stir fries and soups, oh my! As always, vegetarian options are suggested if the meal contains meat. And of course, two printable grocery lists are included – one that is already filled out and another that you can customize yourself!

Now, one last thing before we get to the recipes. I forgot to mention last week that the filled-out grocery list is color-coded to help you out when shopping. Green = produce. Red = dairy and meat. Purple = non-perishable items, like pasta, rice, spices, etc. Additionally, pantry staples such as salt, pepper and olive oil will not appear on every grocery list as they are assumed to be on hand. So double check to make sure you are stocked up!

And now, the food!

Tuesday

Vegetable and Black Bean Enchilada Pasta from Cook Nourish Bliss

Plan ahead/tips: If you cannot find good fresh corn, sub in 1 cup frozen corn kernels instead! I also like to have extra enchilada sauce on hand for reheating any leftovers.

Thursday

6-Vegetable Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce from The Roasted Root

Friday

Southwestern Chicken Couscous Stew from Greens & Chocolate

Plan ahead/vegetarian options: To make vegetarian omit chicken and add extra can of black beans.  If making this with chicken, you can cook the chicken up to 2 days in advance and store in an airtight container in your refrigerator.  Otherwise this stew comes together very quickly.
