Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 1.2.16

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

And just like that, it’s 2016.

I can hardly believe it. I absolutely adore this time of the year – there’s something about January that is so inspiring and exciting!

Anywho, it’s also one of my favorite times of the year to create recipes – I love the focus on healthy and fresh eats! I have so many fantastic meals coming your way shortly, but first we’re kicking this year off with another healthy weekly meal plan! Help you stick with all your goals for the New Year, yes??

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.

Just a reminder! Don’t forget that the website will be down for a few hours on Tuesday January 5th as we make the transition to our new name! In case you missed it, you can read more about this here! —> A Huge Announcement!

Citrusy Quinoa Cashew Chicken and Broccoli from Cook Nourish Bliss

Red Lentil Coconut Curry Stuffed Spaghetti Squash from greens & chocolate

Prep Ahead: You can prep the curry 1-2 days in advance. To make cooking the spaghetti squash quicker, microwave it face down in a baking dish with ~1/2 inch of water in it, for 12-14 minutes on high.
