Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 1.16.16
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.
One Pot Tortellini Minestrone from Spoonful of Flavor
Prep Ahead: You can make this soup ahead of time and reheat.
Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai from The Roasted Root
Prep Ahead: The sauce can be made a couple days ahead of time, and the spaghetti squash can be roasted ahead of time.
Sriracha Peanut Tofu Stir Fry from greens & chocolate
Prep Ahead: You can make the rice or quinoa a day in advance. You can also sub chicken for the tofu for a non-vegetarian option.
Italian Chopped Kale Salad from Flavor the Moments
Prep Ahead: This meal comes together very quickly!
Mediterranean Chicken Sausage and Veggie Bake from Cook Nourish Bliss
Prep Ahead/Vegetarian Option: The veggies can be sliced in advance if desired. For a vegetarian option, omit the chicken sausage and add 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed. You can also bulk it up with additional veggies!
