This week’s meal plan:


 

Lunches: Mason Jar Salads

TIPS:

  • Prep in advance on Sunday!
  • Only use half of the box of rotini for this.
  • Save some spinach & tomatoes for a future meal as well .

 

Breakfast: Raspberry Granola Bars

TIPS:

  • To make applesauce, peel and dice up one apple and put cook it in a saucepan until a chunky, saucy consistency.
  • Use vegetable oil if you don’t have coconut.

 

Dinner: Monday
Enchiladas

TIPS:

  • Skip the black beans this time around.
  • If you don’t have southwest seasoning, a homemade taco seasoning also tastes delicious.

 

Dinner: Tuesday
Pasta with Sautéed Tomatoes & Spinach

TIPS:

  • Skip the olives. Who even likes olives?
  • Also, I use the other half of that box of rotini.

 

Dinner: Wednesday
Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Broccoli

TIPS:

  • Serve with a side of rice, if desired!

 

Dinner: Thursday
Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini

DIRECTIONS:

  • Instead of half and half, we just use milk. Sprinkle in some cornstarch or flour to thicken, if needed.
  • I love cheese tortellini, but if you want to get a bag of  meat tortellini that would also be super tasty!

 

Dinner: Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (pick 2!)
Crockpot Chicken Tacos

TIPS:

  • Again, make this homemade taco seasoning if you don’t feel like buying a taco seasoning packet (although they are usually pretty cheap).
  • Serve with greek yogurt, cheese, onions, and diced tomatoes!

 

Weekend Brunch
Lemon Raspberry Coffee Cake

TIPS:

  • If you don’t have powdered sugar, that’s okay! It’s just to make the glaze.

 

Snack
Apple Nachos

  • Cut up a few apples, drizzle whatever nut butter you have in the pantry, and sprinkle with chocolate chips!

 

Remember:
You get one dinner out with this plan.
Use it wisely!
