A Healthy Meal Plan featuring six seasonal dinner recipes and one dessert! Complete with a printable grocery list, these meal plans are designed to make life easy and nourishing!
This week’s healthy meal plan is all about easy comfort food!
Leaning into the chilly winter weather, we have a couple hearty soup recipes for you this week, in addition to some protein-centric main dishes.
If you’re like me and you try to eat somewhat clean during the week so that you can enjoy weekends without thinking about vegetables, these meal plans can provide so much relief.
Because protein and fiber are both very satiating, I always recommend building meals around protein and filling in with veggies to make you feel satisfied.
If you’re looking for some veggie side dishes to go with your meals this week, I recommend this Pear Apple Avocado Spinach Salad, Garlic Herb Roasted Vegetables, and Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad.
Also, if you didn’t catch my 5-Ingredient Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies earlier this week, I highly recommend them for a healthy treat! They are perfectly sweet, come together in a flash, and I’ll just be transparent – I can’t stop eating them.
And now for the food!
I hope you enjoy this week’s meal plan.
As always, let me know if you have any questions or requests. xo
