The Picky Eater Meal Plan (Week 1)

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to announce the launch of my weekly meal plans. Over the years I've gotten lots of questions from all of you about what I eat on a weekly basis, how I meal plan, etc. And so I thought the easiest thing to do would be to just share what we are actually eating on a weekly basis and how we balance things out!

Some of my general rules for weekly meal planning:
  • Breakfasts for us are always some version of oatmeal - I just mix things up by changing toppings every so often. If you're looking for a bit more variety, try one of these recipes here.
  • Lunches are usually either leftovers, or one of these easy recipes here.
  • For dinner: I alternate between super fast meals that are still healthy, and meals that might take a bit more time (no more than 45 min - 1 hour to make). I like variety but it's hard to figure out variety 3 times a day every day, so I keep our breakfasts and lunches simple, and change things up each night for dinner!
For this week (Week 1), here is our dinner plan:
  • Monday: Cheesy Quinoa and Black Bean Casserole
  • Tuesday: Veggie Burgers
  • Wednesday: Leftovers! -> The black bean casserole will last for 3 days in the Fridge, and freezes great too!
  • Thursday: Mexican Pizzas ->This week I'm adding chopped baby spinach to the pizza - I'll add it as a topping underneath the cheese, and then bake so the cheese melts over the spinach and the rest of the veggies.
  • Friday: Eat out!
  • Saturday: Skinny, Spicy Pasta with Veggies -> You can use any veggies and any pasta you like for this recipe! This week I'm using: 4 zucchini chopped, 3 yellow peppers chopped, 1 onion diced, and 1 box baby spinach, chopped with whole wheat penne.
  • Sunday: Curried Cauliflower Soup -> I'm serving this with a simple grilled cheese on sprouted wheat bread: two slices sprouted wheat bread, 1 slice of your favorite cheese (I like pepperjack), and olive oil cooking spray. Spray your griddle, and the grilled cheeses should be ready in 5 minutes!

To help you out, here is a simple meal planning template that I use, and some of my weekly grocery list items! For those of you who are new to meal planning, you can do it! Just follow this plan, make a shopping list, go shopping and make it happen!

Happy cooking everyone!
