Healthy Meal Plans Week 45

By Kristen Mccaffrey on

This week's healthy meal plan is packed with delicious dishes like Slow Cooker Beef Ragu, Spinach Artichoke Quesadillas, Crispy Pork, and more.

It's November! This is a time of year when it's easy to start to give in to the holidays and start thinking about getting in shape in the new year. But instead of falling down that rabbit hole, this year, stick to your meal plan and goals instead. Imagine going into the new year feeling good about where you are instead of trying to start again.

Now let's talk about this week's meal plan! This week kicks off with a delicious Italian Frittata, Spinach Artichoke Quesadillas, and a Slow Cooker Beef Ragu for dinner. Monday brings Roasted Vegetables with Orzo and Tuesday is Easy Spicy BBQ Chicken Thighs. Mid-week meals include Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli and Crispy Pork. Finally to end the week, there are delicious Turkey Apple Burgers and Sweet Chili Coconut Chicken Fingers.

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.

Some highlights from this week's meal plan!

Slow Cooker Beef Ragu: Now that the colder weather is here, this Beef Ragu is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold night and is comfort food at its best.

Turkey Apple Burgers: These turkey burgers are perfect for fall since they incorporate apples right into the patties. Not only does this add a great fall flavor, it also keeps the burgers moist so you don't have to worry about a dry turkey burger.

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli: I love easy meals and this dish comes together in less than 20 minutes and is packed with tons of flavor from the garlic and Parmesan cheese.
