Loved hearing this from one of our members, Lynn, last week, "The weeks are flying by....and the recipes are amazing! Using spices I never tried before...and I have to say, best thing I ever did was subscribe to Meal Planning!" Awesome.
Now let's take a look at this week's yummy plan. The week starts out with Protein Banana Oatmeal Pancakes (with a secret ingredient!) followed by a healthier version of Broccoli Cheddar Soup for lunches and Slow Cooker Balsamic Beef Roast for dinner. During the week, dinners include a Cheesy Gnocchi Vegetable Pasta Skillet, Roasted Mustard Chicken Sausages with Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts, the most amazing Tomato Basil Chicken, Brown Sugar Salmon, Sweet Chili Coconut Chicken Fingers and more. Remember to check out the healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plans all with macros and SmartPoints.
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”
Every week I like to share highlights form the Slender Kitchen meal plans. I believe meal planning is critical to any long term and effective healthy living or weight loss goals. For me it was the single thing that finally made permanent weight loss achievable. The quote stood true, when I failed to plan, I failed, and I don’t want that to happen to others.
Additionally, I believe that meal planning is a skill that takes time to master and we can all use some help! When I first started meal planning it took up countless hours pouring over recipes, calculating nutritional info and/or points, creating elaborate calendars, and building shopping lists. It was painful. Anything I can do to ease that pain for someone else is a win-win in my book.
Finally, I hope by sharing meal plan ideas, it will help you find a system that works for you. Whether it’s using our meal plans or interactive meal planner, writing one into your weekly planner, or creating your own meal planning system – I hope this feature inspires you to start planning at least a few meals every week. It will save you time, money, and it truly will help you reach your weight loss and healthy living goals.

Some highlights from this week's meal plan!
Healthier Cheddar Broccoli Soup: This is an old recipe but one I still absolutely love. It has all the flavor of a high fat broccoli cheese soup without all the calories.
Tomato Basil Chicken: The sauce is everything in this dish, you'll want to slurp up every last bit.
One Pan Mustard Roasted Chicken Sausage, Potatoes, and Brussels Sprouts: I love any kind of one dish meal and especially these sausages and potatoes roasted in a garlic mustard sauce.
