Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 3.26.16

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

The weekend is here! Time to break out the happy dance!

Because I couldn’t be more excited. It’s Easter weekend and I have a number of fun things lined up. Most notably a holiday lunch shindig with friends. I plan to spend some time baking today just for fun (for the aforementioned get-together) and I am quite looking forward to it!

Anyway, with all these good times happening here shortly, it’s time to get meal planning for the week done. Crossed off the list! So today we have another healthy line-up of fun and delicious dinner ideas. This week we’re talking green goddess quinoa bowls, spring veggie pad thai, a strawberry salad and much more!

As with all our healthy weekly meal plans, vegetarian options are suggested if the dish contains meat (and can be easily substituted). 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.

Happy Easter my friends!
