The meal plan and meal prep are what is on everyone’s mind. There’s not much for me to offer you in this area because I don’t create my own recipes. Plus, I don’t mind eating the same food all week. I can make one meal and eat it for dinner all week, but I know some people just don’t like leftovers.
I thought I would try to create a dinner meal plan for the blog readers. To make grocery shopping a bit easier, I focused on one protein cooked different ways throughout the week.
Here’s the meal plan with this week’s featured ingredient: Ground Turkey
Monday: Mini meatloaf, cauliflower mash or mashed potatoes, and sauteed green beans.
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday. Use some Mrs. Dash taco seasoning and go to town. Don’t want the tortilla? Make a taco salad with black beans, corn, avocado, and tomatoes.
Wednesday: Roasted spaghetti squash with marinara sauce and a side salad. Instead of making my own dressing when I don’t always have time, I would use a Bolthouse Farms dressing.
Thursday: Turkey burgers with baked sweet potatoes. Save time by prepping your food, I bake my sweet potatoes at 450 degrees for an hour with just cinnamon and black pepper.
Friday: It’s a day for leftovers.
This is just a basic dinner meal plan for people who need to have something different to eat every day. Honestly, I would probably make two of these dishes and eat it the whole week.
Dinner always seems to come easy for me but lunch is another story. When I come up with some ideas for lunch, it will be much more a struggle. I do hope that you find this helpful and I look forward to doing more of these in the future.
Can you eat the same thing all week or do you need a variety in your meals?
