Healthy Weeknight Meal Plan #10

Wow – we just hit Week #10!  How’s the meal planning going for you?  Is it saving time and most of all, relieving some stress about what the heck to make for dinner each night?

Healthy Weeknight Meal Plan #10 | Simply Fresh Dinners

This week we’re making some substantial meals and concentrating specifically on time management.  By spending 20 minutes or so planning your menu, you can relax and know things are taken care of.  I wanted to let you know that the Ebook I am writing is also going to include shopping lists – another huge time saver!

Take a look at my suggestions for this week.  I think you’re going to love them!

Lamb Stew with Spring Vegetables  |  Panning The Globe

It’s going to take some time but this gorgeous, healthy recipe from Lisa is so worth it.  You can change up next week’s days and use this for St. Patrick’s Day if you like but given our busy schedules,  I’m suggesting you make a double batch of this on Sunday and presto – Monday’s dinner is done!  Ask your butcher to cut your lamb for you as another time saver.  I can’t wait to try this stew!

Sriracha Almond Crusted Salmon  |  Peas and Crayons

When I saw this recipe from Jenn, I immediately asked if I could include it in the weekly meal plan because I know how everyone loves salmon and this is super tasty and super easy.  It’s a 17 minute recipe – ha! Love it.   Don’t be discouraged if the salmon at your seafood counter is looking sad and droopy, go for the frozen wild salmon.  You’ll save money and most times it’s fresher!  (Note:  you shouldn’t be eating farmed salmon more than once a month)

Mahogany Chicken with Broccoli, Mushrooms and Green Onions  |  Simply Fresh Dinners

This dish lets the oven do all the work and while it’s cooking, you can poach some extra chicken for tomorrow night’s dinner.  If you don’t want to poach, add some extra pieces to your tray in the oven  and the Thursday’s dinner will be a snap.  This is an easy sauce for the chicken and you’ll likely have all the ingredients for it on hand.  Do you stock your fridge with jarred minced ginger and garlic?  They are life savers when your recipe needs a little ooomph!

Tamari + Lime Poached Chicken Noodle Salad  |  Nourish Every Day

I just found the talented Monique and her blog this week and I’m thrilled that she is sharing this beautiful recipe. The  dish is ready in 20 minutes and if you cooked the chicken the night before it’s even faster.   I love adding lime to my recipes in the Spring and Summer and Monique has created a delicious tamari/lime combo that’s going to blow your mind.  Love all the textures and if you’ve got picky eaters,  you can point out that there are noodles in there, too!

Healthy Skillet Lasagna  |  Apple of My Eye

This scrumptious skillet is only 400 calories per serving and if you want to add more veggies – go for it!  Christine likes to use cottage cheese instead of ricotta and that is my preference as well.  It’s not as sweet and really gives the lasagna an extra boost.  Did I mention that it’s quick and easy too?  Come on- you just know I was going to say that! 🙂

Cheers to a stress-free week of healthy eating!
