Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 1.16.16

A healthy weekly meal plan with printable grocery list. Featuring a chicken sausage veggie bake, tortellini minestrone and Italian kale salad!

Happy Saturday to you! This week has just completely flown by and I am so looking forward to relaxing and partaking in some fun shenanigans over the weekend. Things like brunch with friends, hanging out with the husband, annoying that crazy beagle of ours. Yes to the yes. It’s happening.

One of my goals for this year is to completely shut off from work over the weekend (okay fine, at least ONE day per weekend!). I have been in a fierce struggle with that whole work life balance thing over the last year … and something needs to change. Please tell me I’m not alone in this battle?? Tips, suggestions, yes?

Anyway, let’s talk food. Enough about my issues with stepping away from the computer. And my phone … let’s not forget that silly thing. So. This week we have some excellent dinner ideas for you! From minestrone, to spaghetti squash, to stir-fry, to salad, to veggie bakes! So much goodness.

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.
