Healthy meal plan packed with easy, healthy, family friendly recipes all with nutritional info, SmartPoints, and a complete shopping list.
By this time almost everyone is heading back to school or starting to think about getting back into a routine for fall. While I hate to see the summer go, I am excited about having a little more structure. Since getting back into a routine is hard work, this week's meal plan is full of easy to make recipes that are ready in no time. Plus there is a great recipe for Freezer Burritos that I highly recommend doubling or tripling. Having healthy burritos ready to go in your freezer can be a game changer when it comes to quick meals.
It starts out with Cottage Cheese Omelet Muffins, Freezer Friendly Burritos, and Slow Cooker Balsamic Beef Roast. Monday brings Sugar Snap Pea and Bacon Pasta and Tuesday is Cilantro Lime Chicken Kabobs. Wednesday is Stovetop Barbecue Pork Tostadas and Thursday is Brown Sugar Chicken. To end the week, meals include Garlic Parmesan Shrimp and Turkey Sloppy Joes.
Remember to check out the healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plans all with nutritional info 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.
