Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 10.3.15

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

It’s healthy weekly meal plan time!

I don’t know about you, but with the torrential rain here in North Carolina, all I want to do is curl up on the couch, relax and pretty much do nothing. So this meal plan is coming in extra handy for me this week!

And today we’re talking all sorts of good food. We have minestrone soup, spaghetti squash, stir-fry, salad and spaghetti! Lots of S’s apparently!

Like always, vegetarian options are suggested if the meal contains meat. And two printable grocery lists are included – one that is already filled out and another that you can customize yourself.

Let’s get to it!

Monday
