Healthy Weekly Meal Plan with six dinner recipes and 1 dessert! A gluten-free meal plan with paleo, whole30, and keto options.

It’s the first Saturday of the month, which means we have a new healthy meal plan for you!

As always, this meal plan features plenty of variety in proteins, veg, and flavors. We like to keep your taste buds guessing so that you never get bored with your food. 😉

If you’re looking for healthy side dishes to serve with any of these main entrees, my Big Batch Roasted Vegetables is a great go-to!

It makes a huge amount of veggies, which you can add to your meals throughout the week. Plus, they’re crazy delicious!

If you’re looking for some breakfast inspiration this week, my Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal and my Grain-Free Hummingbird Bread have also been sensational!

And now for this week’s healthy meal plan. As always, let me know if you have any questions or requests.



Sweet Chipotle Salmon with Hot Honey Glaze – This simple salmon has a triple punch of sweet, smoky, & spicy! The honey glaze is a MUST and is super easy to make.

Special Diet Notes: Using a lettuce bun and omitting the cheese makes these burgers paleo. Throw that cheese back on to make them low-carb/keto friendly.

Mediterranean Baked Turkey Meatballs – Mediterranean Baked Turkey Meatballs with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, feta, kalamata olives and fresh garlic are wildly flavorful and deceptively easy to make! Serve these baked meatballs with your favorite side dishes for a healthy weeknight meal.

Substitutions/Notes: Serve the meatballs with your choice of rice, noodles, or roasted vegetables. You can serve them as pasta with your favorite pasta sauce!


Creamy Spinach Avocado Pasta – A spinach avocado pasta (we call them “green noodles!” might be a hard sell on paper, but I promise this greens-packed sauce is surprisingly tasty with a few tricks!

Thai Chicken Chopped Salad – Thai Chicken Chopped Salad with crunchy cabbage, carrot, toasted cashews, and a delicious creamy sesame ginger peanut dressing. This vibrant, filling salad recipe is that feel-good meal that leaves you energized and happy.

Thai Chicken Chopped Salad with peanut dressing and toasted cashews. Vibrant, delicious salad that is light yet satisfying.

Special Diet Notes: Recipe is paleo as written. Omit the pure maple syrup from the dressing to make the recipe Whole30 compliant.
Prep Ahead: The dressing can be made up to 5 days ahead of time. You’ll need already cooked chicken, so if you’re making the chicken (rather than using store-bought pre-cooked chicken), you can do so up to 5 days in advance.
Substitutions/Notes: Use your favorite protein for the salad in place of chicken. Add or subtract veggies to your personal taste.


10-Minute Cocoa-Chili Pecans – My favorite thing about these Cocoa-Chile Candied Pecans? No egg whites involved. This is a super easy stovetop recipe that will give you sweet, chocolatey pecans with a little hint of cayenne. (Or a big hint of cayenne, if you like.)
