This Week’s Meal Plan

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi friends!

I am proud to say that I stuck to my November Goals (in last week’s blog post) all week long. Meal planning last week was a huge success! I made a bunch of new recipes that turned out SO well. I can’t wait to make them again and photograph them for the blog.

On Saturday, I meal planned again for the upcoming week. I went to Whole Food and stocked up on all the ingredients we need, plus a few healthy snacks I can bring to work.

Here’s what’s for dinner this week:

Sunday (last night): Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Farro Risotto

(OMG this one is SO good. I am going to share the recipe later this week!)

Monday: Healthier French Onion Soup + Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

Tuesday: Kale Salads with Grilled Chicken, Farro, Grapes, and Roasted Carrots (using leftovers from Sunday night’s meal)

Wednesday: Asian-Glazed Salmon with Fire-Roasted Broccoli

Thursday: Apricot-Glazed Chicken Thighs with Whole Wheat Couscous

Friday: Dinner out with friends

Saturday: Wing it with whatever we have in the fridge


What about you guys? Did you meal plan for the week? Any new recipes you’re excited to try?

    Our meal plans are so similar!! I always do Friday night out and then Saturday is usually a TBD. Looking forward to that farro risotto recipe! Risottos were one of the first “fancy” recipes that I was able to master back in college.

      I loooove risotto! It usually can be so rich (and not so healthy), but this recipe is healthy AND delicious!
