Here is another healthy meal plan containing some of my favorite recipes! After I put this together, I realized most of these can be prepared in around 30 minutes. Most weeks I menu plan to start on Sunday. I usually have more time and help on that day so I like to choose a meal that requires a little more prep. Because it is getting warmer out, I was excited to add a meal that can be prepped ahead of time and thrown on the grill! Most of these (quiche, lettuce wraps. kebabs) also make enough for leftovers so plan to have lunch ready to go the next day. I hope this makes your week a bit easier and allows you to make healthy food choices!
*Have the chicken prepared ahead of time and place on skewers while the grill is heating up.
*Served with a side of fruit or Guacamole and plantain chips, this meal is plenty filling.
Monday- Chicken Bruschetta
*Make the bruschetta mix ahead of time and it will be ready to go once the chicken is cooked.
Tuesday- Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
*Make sure you pick up your favorite toppings for this meal, cheese, sour cream, pico and/or avocado.
*This can be made ahead of time and placed in the fridge until you are ready to bake.
*I made a note on the grocery list to add whatever you will be putting in your quiche to the list. I have made it with bacon and cheese but usually go with broccoli and cheddar.
Thursday-Black Bean Burgers
*I found a healthy version of the chipotle mayo at Whole Foods. The brand is Sir Kinsington.
*If you want to make your own, make sure you also purchase olive oil based mayo, chipotle chilies in adobo sauce and a lime.
*I like to do my meatless meal on Thursday so I can use up the meat as soon as possible (I usually do my shopping on Saturday or Sunday).
