Paleo Weekly Meal Plan - a whole food focused healthy weekly meal plan to make meal prep seamless and delicious!

Hey there!

We’re back with another whole food-centric meal plan for your meal prepping enjoyment!

What have you been cooking (or not cooking) this summer? 

We hit salads pretty hard at the beginning of summer and are now obsessed with grilling…specifically Grilled Steak with all the Stir Fry Vegetables. 🙂

Let’s talk about our meal prepping for the week! This week’s meal plan includes all the fresh and flavorful meals that are both easy to prepare and a joy to consume. We’re going with summer-centric produce and meals that come together quickly, easily and are ultra satisfying with plenty of protein.

I hope you love this week’s lineup! And I hope you’re in the mood for chicken!

Chicken recipes have been popular lately, which leads me to believe everyone’s enjoying chicken of all types. If you’re not on board with all the chicken this week, feel free to swap one of the chicken-centric recipes for my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper or my Chili Lime Baked Cod!

Also, if you haven’t had a chance to check out my Death By Chocolate Keto Brownies or my Keto Blueberry Crumble, I highly suggest you give them a try!!

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

Healthy Weekly Meal Plan


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

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

Special Diet: Paleo and low-carb. Make it keto by omitting the mango. If you’d like to make it Whole30, omit the pure maple syrup from the dressing.

Prep Ahead: Make the dressing up to 5 days in advance, and/or cook chicken up to 3 days ahead of time.

Substitutions/Notes: Use peanut butter for the dressing instead of almond butter. Use any type of leftover chicken for the salad. Add your favorite salad ingredients to use up what you have on hand. There is a decent amount of chicken on the menu this week, so feel free to swap it for Chili Lime Glazed Shrimp, Crispy Skin Salmon, or a different protein if you’d like.


The Best Chicken Fajitas – No, really. These are the best chicken fajitas – citrusy with a hint of heat and they make the BEST leftovers! Leftover Chicken Fajita Soup (coming later this week) is pretty amazing!
