Weekly Meal Plan 10.24.2015

Healthy Weekly Meal Plan (with gluten-free and vegetarian options) 10.24.2015 | TheRoastedRoot.net

Hey-o, how was your week? We’re still El Niño-less over here, which is driving the snowboarder in me crazy, but the trail runner in me is love.ing.it! I’ve been going on early morning jogs through the desert just after the sun starts to come up. The desert is so tranquil in the morning, and I wish I could bottle up the scent and keep it as an air freshener. The multitude of colors of the landscape and sunrise are breathtaking and it’s awesome connecting with nature and wildlife while the city begins to awaken.

Should I have handed you some granola before beginning this conversation? My mistake. Next time!

Anyhoo, no matter your local weather pattern and daily comings and goings, I have a nice little plan for you to follow! It involves 5 simple meals from yours truly, Greens & Chocolate, Making Thyme for Health, Cookie Monster Cooking, and Flavor the Moments, and it’s all sorts of healthy and filling. You’re going to love these dishes AND the fact that we’ve made grocery shopping  a breeze with our printable grocery list.

Without further ado, go get that weekend!
