This Healthy Weekly Meal plan features healthy meals that are paleo, keto, or whole30 friendly (or easy to adapt as such). The perfect clean eating meal plan that is budget-friendly and tasty to boot!

Healthy Weekly meal plan for week 43

First new Meal Plan of 2024!

Whether you’re looking for quick and healthy meals or a meal plan that fits a specific diet, I trust you’ll find what you need here.

This easy healthy weekly meal plan can be adapted to fit your dietary needs if it doesn’t do so already. We have included suggestions on how to prepare the recipes so that they are paleo, keto, or whole30 compliant.

I find building my meals around protein and fiber (vegetables) is a surefire way of ensuring I stay full and satisfied while keeping mealtime health-conscious.

The best part about this meal plan is how flavorful all the dishes are while remaining nutritious and cost-effective. We have a couple of main entrees only, so you can always serve them with your favorite side dishes.

If you’re looking for some nutritious side dishes to enjoy with your meals throughout the week, here are some of my favorites.

Feel free to check out my full archive of healthy meal plans to peruse more weekly plans and keep the meal prepping fire alive.
