Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 11.14.15
Another Saturday means another healthy weekly meal plan!
I don’t know about you, but with Thanksgiving (and Christmas! yes, I said it!) inching closer and closer, it definitely feels like the madness of the holidays is officially here. So having my meals planned out is such a life saver – and I hope it is for you too!
As always, we have lots of delicious meals on tap for you this week. We’re talking butternut pasta, a mexican-style pizza, minestrone soup and a one-pot quinoa dish!
As with all our healthy weekly meal plans, vegetarian options are suggested if the meal contains meat. And, two printable grocery lists can be found at the end of the post – one that is completely filled out and another that you can customize yourself.
Onward we go!
Minestrone Soup with Quinoa from The Roasted Root
Prep Ahead: This recipe comes together rather quickly, but if you’d like, you can chop the vegetables ahead of time. You can add chicken for protein.
One Pot Mexican Black Bean Sweet Potato Quinoa from Flavor the Moments
Prep Ahead: Veggies can be prepped in advance. The meal comes together in 30-40 minutes!
Butternut Squash, Bacon, and Gruyere Pasta from greens & chocolate
Prep Ahead/Vegetarian Option: Roast the squash and/or make sauce a day in advance. Omit bacon for vegetarian.
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Pizza from Cook Nourish Bliss
Prep Ahead: Black bean puree may be made in advance. Additionally, the sweet potatoes may also be sauteed in advance. Serve with a side salad! If you don’t want to buy manchego, another cheese of choice can be used instead (although the manchego is delicious here!).
Take a night off – you deserve it! (PS – we’ll be back to five days a week shortly!)
