This week’s healthy meal plan is all about easy comfort food! Trust me, you’re going to love the simplicity and the deliciousness of all these flavorful meals!

Do note we have a couple of main entrees only, so you can always serve them with your favorite side dishes.

I recommend my Crowd-Pleasing Roasted Vegetables, Maple Roasted Carrot with Feta and Dried Cranberries and my Cilantro Lime Rice.

Also, if you didn’t catch my 6-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie in a Mug, be sure to check it out! It’s the perfect single-serve dessert for peanut butter lovers.

And now for the food!

I hope you enjoy this week’s meal plan!

As always, let me know if you have any questions or requests. xo
