We’re going light and simple with this week’s meal plan. Once again I’m out of town, so much of this will be carried over into next week.
That’s the beauty of how I do my dinner planning though. When I know we probably won’t get to many of the meals, I make sure I’m cross utilizing products, or taking advantage of frozen proteins, like shrimp, that won’t die if we never get to them.
I also want to remind you that we RARELY get through most of our scheduled dinner menus. Life happens. Take-out happens. Frozen pizza happens. But at least we hardly ever wonder what to have for dinner. We always know, it’s either what we had planned, or it’s Chinese delivery.
So with these meals, feel free to use some or all of the ideas. Don’t let it overwhelm you, because it’s intended to inspire you.
Meal Plan Week of 5/14/17
This Is How We Do It:
Chicken Salad Stuffed Avocado
Lately I’m all about the pre-cooked chicken. Either the whole breasts in the refrigerated section of Trader Joe’s, or the pulled roasted chicken from Costco. Add a little bit of mayo, celery, grapes, salt, and pepper. And you’re good to go. Scoop it into half an avocado and you’ve got a power packed, healthy dinner! Here’s a recipe from Delish.
I never get sick of this. It’s so light and refreshing!
One of my fave frozen meals from Trader Joe’s! Cook it up and serve over spaghetti or rice.
Caprese Turkey Burgers
Grill turkey burgers. Top with fresh sliced mozzarella cheese (you may still have some from last week’s dinner), thick slice of tomato, and balsamic glaze or vinegar.
Quick, easy, healthy, yummy.
The best thing about nachos is that you can take whatever you have left in your fridge, and make nachos out of it. All you need as a base is chips, salsa, and cheese. The rest is just bonus.
Healthy and super flavorful.
