This week's 7-Day healthy meal plan
January has come to an end, but it looks like winter is just settling in! After the first real snowfall of the season, I'm in the mood to slip on a sweater and warm up. And one of the best ways to warm up is to eat those hot, heavy dishes that only make sense during the winter. In this meal plan for the first week of February, you'll find a lot of healthier comfort foods and a couple slow cooker options.
About the meal plan
If you’re new to my meal plans, I share these free, 7-day healthy meal plans to be meant as a guide, to be used as inspiration for the week ahead. You can see my previous meal plans here. I don't include snacks, beverages or dessert so those are up to you! Sign up for my email newsletter above to download a healthy snacks ebook if you're looking for more ideas there, or check out my healthy snack ideas here.
Save time and money with my weekly meal plans! You’ll dine out less often, waste less food and save yourself the stress and hassle of meal planning each week.
If you’re on Facebook, you can also join my Meal Prep Facebook Community where everyone’s sharing photos of recipes they are making and helping to keep each other accountable to prepping each week.
How this meal plan works
I include a weekly breakfast idea as a bonus for you to prep in advance each week. What I suggest is prepping the breakfast in advance on a Sunday, and then eating it each day through the work week.
For Saturday and Sunday, or if you don't feel like prepping breakfast, I recommend making a quick 5-minute breakfast such as toast, peanut butter and banana, Greek yogurt and granola, oatmeal or scrambled eggs and fruit.
Lunches Monday to Friday are designed to serve 1 or 2 people. I'll usually include one lunch idea you can prep ahead and strictly eat for lunch, while dinners and all meals on the weekend are designed to serve a family of 4.
Some dinner recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day.
This meal plan is designed mostly for families, so there may be more food than you need, especially if you are a household of one or two. I suggest eliminating one or two dinner recipes and eating dinner leftovers for lunch if you are a small or single person household.
And last, but not least, I've tried to make all of my weekly meal plans to be as flexible as possible. You can definitely squeeze in coffee, drinks, snacks and dessert in there. If necessary, you may need to move some things around to make it work with your schedule, so always consult your calendar too. Enjoy!
