Healthy Weekly Meal Plan – 5.7.16

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

It’s Mother’s Day weekend! Tell me, do you have any fun plans? The husband jokingly bought me a Mother’s Day cake a few years back (being Emma the beagle’s momma totally counts!), and now I jokingly (ahem, maybe) feel like this must be repeated every single year. So cross your fingers that I get some cake tomorrow!! Kidding. Sorta.

Anyway, let’s talk dinner for the coming week! As always, we have lots of fun and delicious meals on tap. From thai peanut noodles to roasted veggie quesadillas to an enchilada bake 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.

Wishing all you mommas out there a most wonderful and relaxing weekend!!



Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas from Cook Nourish Bliss

Prep Ahead: Filling can be made in advance so it is ready to go for dinner. Additionally, you can make the filling, let cool to room temp, and then assemble the quesadillas as directed. Wrap each individually in plastic wrap and store in fridge. When ready to eat, just cook in the skillet! They keep wrapped for about 1 to 3 days.
