I am so excited about this week's healthy meal plan. It's chockful of recipes I love, especially the Slow Cooker Banh Mi Pork and Balsamic Flank Steak with Tomatoes. I mean who can't get behind a delicous steak dinner ready in less than 20 minutes.
Now let's take a look at this week's yummy plan. It starts out with Southwest Black Bean Egg Muffins, Turkey Fajita Stuffed Zucchini, and Slow Cooker Banh Mi Pork. Monday brings lightened up Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles and Tuesday is Roasted Balsamic Flank Steak with Tomatoes. Wednesday is Spicy Peanut Chicken and Thursday is Turkey Schnitzel. To end the week, meals include Sausage with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Lentils as well as Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches with Baked Carrot 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.
