Meal Plan / Week 1

Last year flew by and I can’t believe it’s 2017! But I’m ready for it! What’s Gaby Cooking is coming your way with some really exciting new announcements in the coming months so buckle up! And until then – let’s do this weeks meal plan!

You know the drill. 5 nights of dinner recipes – Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I’ll add in something sweet here and there, or a breakfast smoothie creation, or blow it out where there’s a celebration… but you can count on 5 nights worth of meals every single Sunday all year round. So, here we go! If you guys want to see anything else pertaining to weekly meal plans, just holler in the comments!

Monday – I’m going for these Chicken Fajitas and Sweetpotato Nachos made on a giant sheet-pan because that means majorly easy clean up

TuesdayBLT Salmon Salads with a side of steamed rice!

WednesdaySouthwestern Brown Rice Bowls which have the most delicious green rice as the base! Plus they are loaded with so many goodies, you don’t even need a side dish!

ThursdayQuinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers (which also can double for leftovers for lunch on Friday!) and some garlic roasted mushrooms!

And if you’re looking for something healthy to kick start every morning… might I suggest these smoothies!

  1. Oooh, I LOVE this idea. I do so dislike having to think about a plan every day!! This is going to make it much easier and more fun!!

  2. The week looks delicious! It would be nice if it was posted before or at the beginning of the weekend so we could get groceries on Sat or Sun. Thanks, Gaby!

  3. I so wish I was always responsible enough for meal planning- everything here looks deicious!

  4. I seriously hope you do more of these! For one of my meal prep recipes this week I combined your chicken fajitas with the brown rice and cilantro vinaigrette and all I can say is wow. Simply amazing! I’ve been trying to make ye meals a little more interesting so thank you for bringing some great flavors into my food! Will definitely be making again, and please please please do more weekly meal plans (:
