Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 12.12.15

A healthy weekly meal plan with printable grocery list. Featuring a quinoa casserole, stuffed squash and tomato basil pasta!

So please tell me. Does anyone else have wayyyy too much to do this weekend?

I may or may not have slightly over-committed myself. And I also may not even remotely have my holiday shopping done. Which is made worse by the fact that I need to ship gifts this year since the husband and I are staying in North Carolina for Christmas. Which means they are likely not making it on time.

Le sigh. The one year I’m behind on presents! Ah well. It happens to the best of us I suppose.

So. Let’s talk meal planning. We’re here to help amid all the holiday chaos (ahem, clearly I need this help myself).

As with all our healthy weekly meal plans, vegetarian options are suggested if the meal contains meat. Plus, 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.

Let’s get to the food!

Monday

Turkey Chili Stuffed Delicata Squash from Flavor the Moments

Prep Ahead/Vegetarian Option: Chili may be made in advance, and squash may be roasted in advance. For vegetarian option, omit the ground turkey.
