Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 11.28.15

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

It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which means I am definitely ready for lots of healthy and nutritious meals! I don’t know about you, but I most certainly ate my weight in side dishes on turkey day. Whoops.

This week we have no shortage of fantastic recipe ideas for you. Plus, we are so excited to welcome Ashley from Spoonful of Flavor – she’ll be contributing recipes each week moving forward (along with the rest of us!) and I know you are going to love them!

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


Leftover Turkey Soup with Root Vegetables from The Roasted Root

Prep Ahead: The turkey will already be prepped ahead of time, but you can also chop the vegetables ahead of time if you’d like
