Meal Plan / Week 1

I can’t decide if this should be meal plan week 52 1/2 or week 1… it’s a weird week so we’re just going for it. This year flew by and I can’t believe it’s pretty much 2020! But I’m ready for it! WGC 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. 6 nights of dinner recipes – Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 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 at least 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!

SundaySausage and Leek Pasta – omg you guys are going to LOVE this one!

Monday – It’s new years eve EVE so we’re going for it // also I don’t think anyone is working tomorrow so I’m throwing a little pre-party with a polenta extravaganza! Caramelized Mushroom Polenta for everyone!

Tuesday – It’s new years eve so let’s blow it out with some epic bites and cocktails plus an entire NYE Menu

Wednesday – BLT Salmon Salads are absolutely happening! We’re easing into the new year slowly today!

ThursdaySouthwestern 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!

FridayQuinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers (which also can double for leftovers over the weekend!) and some garlic roasted mushrooms!

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

    Ah! These recipes look fabulous! I’ve printed a few, now to find the time to make them!
    Since becoming single, cooking at home isn’t quite the same. And I cook for a living so all the more reason not to cook at home. But your recipes inspire me and I can make them for 2, and have leftovers!
    Wishing you a healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.
