This week’s Healthy Weekly Meal Plan features six seasonal dinner recipes and one healthier dessert! Complete with a printable grocery list, these meal plans are designed to make life easy and nourishing!

Healthy Meal Plan

First new meal plan of 2023!

We’re excited to share these delicious, approachable meal prep recipes with you to simplify cooking and nourish your body.

This week’s meal plan is all about nourishing clean meals that can fit any dietary lifestyle.

All of these meals can be made low-carb (or keto), paleo friendly or whole30 friendly by either making the recipe as directed or by following our instructions to adapt it. In this sense, it can be used as a keto meal plan, paleo meal plan, whole30 meal plan or just clean eating suggestions for everyday living. 🙂

Whether or not you’re following a specific diet protocol right now, I trust you’ll love these flavorful, fresh meals!

From a clean eating casserole to a light and refreshing soup and delicious shredded beef, we have all sorts of variety to keep your taste buds guessing.

If you’re looking for easy, healthy side dishes to pair with any of these meals, I recommend My Easy Go-To Stir Fry Vegetables Recipe, Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan and Lemon, Vegan Butternut Squash Soup, Sauteed Brussel Sprouts Recipe With Butter and Garlic, or my Crowd-Pleasing Roasted Vegetables.

You can also whip up Cauliflower Rice or Ginger Turmeric Aromatic Rice to make burrito bowls with the barbacoa shredded beef.

Also, if you didn’t catch my 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, they have been a bit hit!

Be sure to print the grocery list at the end of this post to snag all of your groceries for the week in one haul!
