Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 12.5.15

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

It’s Saturday healthy weekly meal plan time!

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend planned. As for me? You can find me partaking in all sorts of holiday merriment! Sparkle sparkle! <— That would be all my Christmas decorations. Our house is most definitely covered in them. And I love it.

Anywho, with holiday baking in full swing, we are here to help take weekly dinner planning off of your to-do list. And also help balance out all that sugar with some delicious meals.

This week we have plenty of comfort food coming your way – soups, enchiladas, pasta!

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.

Let’s get to the food!


Garlicky Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Mushrooms and Kale from The Roasted Root

Prep Ahead/Vegetarian Options: The spaghetti squash can be roasted and “spaghetti-ed” a day or two ahead of time. To make this recipe vegetarian, omit the chicken and add tofu or chickpeas.
