Let's dive into this week's meal plans and get ready to plan, prep, and eat delicious meals. The week begins with some of my favorite Turkey Quiche Cupcakes followed by Hearty Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for lunches and Slow Cooker Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs for dinner. During the week, dinners include Lemon Garlic Broccoli and Shrimp Pasta, Pork Chops with Homemade Applesauce, Sausage, Spinach, and Polenta Bowls, and Parmesan Fish Sticks with Skinny 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.

Some highlights from this week's meal plan!
Slow Cooker Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs: These have quickly risen to the top as one of my favorite things to make in the slow cooker. As someone obsessed with green curry, they couldn't be better.
Lemon Garlic Pasta with Shrimp and Broccoli: I made this last week for a girl's night in and we were licking our plates clean. Between the sweet shrimp, garlic, lemon, and Parmesan cheese - it's a meal you will remember.
Cinnamon Quinoa with Berries: The last few weeks I have been trading out my morning oatmeal for quinoa instead. I love this version with lots of cinnamon and berries.
