Healthy Meal Plans 11

By Kristen Mccaffrey on

It's time again for this week's healthy meal plan! It's packed with good for you, family friendly recipes plus one of my favorite hidden veggie recipes. It's a Carrot and Cheddar Mac and Cheese that has over a pound of carrots hidden in the sauce.

Now let's dig into this week's meal plan. It begins with Baked Steel Cut Oats with Plums, Margherita Flatbread Pizzas, and Slow Cooker Sesame Ginger Chicken. Monday is our secret veggie dish - Carrot and Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese. Then Tuesday brings a Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Skillet with Feta followed by Roasted Pork and Apples, Thursday is a Tomato Braised Chicken Thighs and Friday is a quick and easy Hoisin Salmon. The week ends with some delicious Mushroom Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries.

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.
