Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 9.26.15

A collage of five photos of recipes in this week's meal plan.

Saturday healthy weekly meal plan time!

We’re going to keep it short and sweet today because, well, it’s been one of those weeks.

But boy, do we have lots of good stuff for you on this week’s meal plan. We’re talkin’ flatbreads, tacos and plenty of butternut squash!

Like 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!

Let’s do this!


Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta Skillet from Cook Nourish Bliss

Plan Ahead: If you are going to use homemade butternut squash puree, you can make it in advance. Otherwise, just use canned puree to save time!

Plan Ahead: The brown rice can be prepared 1 to 2 days in advance.

Grilled Veggie Flatbread Pizza with Pesto from Flavor the Moments

Plan Ahead: Pesto sauce and grilled or roasted veggies may be made in advance. Instead of grilling, veggies may be roasted or sauteed, and the pizza may be cooked in the oven according to package instructions. Use whatever veggies you have on hand, and store bought pesto if pressed for time!

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup from greens & chocolate
