Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  I'm taking a page from my girl Hey Lauren Rene and doing a Meal Plan Monday post this week.  Meal planning was one of my New Years' Resolutions this year for many reasons.  Meal planning helps keep grocery costs down, helps dinner time prep go faster, requires less grocery store trips, and keeps us all healthier.   I am on a few weeks into it and have definitely not been 100 percent on it so any and all tips are welcome!  I do, however, put together a five day meal plan for each week with a feed yourself night and a day to go out for dinner (days six and seven.)  I have been turning to Pinterest as my main cookbook, including all of my meals for this week.  Seriously, what did I do before Pinterest?!

Spinach Zucchini Ravioli

Quinoa Turkey Chili

Mung Bean noodle pasta with fresh tomatoes (my own recipe)

Spicy Shrimp (my own recipe)

Quinoa and Roasted Vegetable Salad

Please share your favorite healthy recipes and meal planning tricks!  Happy eating!


  1. Yummy menu! We don't meal plan, but I wish we did. The problem us that hubby is the cook (mostly) and he likes to decide what we're eating that day. I think he has commitment issues lol!!

    1. Lol but that is so awesome that he does a lot of the cooking! It's a fun surprise to see what you're having each night!

  4. Quinoa is on our plan two nights this week too! I hope that amazing GF bread you made is listed as a side every night! ;)

    1. I just posted the bread recipe. I'm so glad you liked it! Quinoa is the new gluten?

  5. I want to meal plan but my husband two can't decide what he wants to eat until the day of- I do usually make him stick with something we have in the fridge already so I'm not running all over town buying food for him.
