Healthy Meal Plans Week 31

Healthy Meal Plans Week 31

Healthy Meal Plans Week 31

I can’t believe Back to School season is upon us – it seems like summer just started. Whether you have kids heading back to school or just are ready to get back into a routine after lazy summer days, meal plans are the perfect way to kick start healthy eating. For me it not only provides me with the structure I need, it makes meal time easier and less stressful. No running to the store or calling for takeout last minute.

It starts out with Apple Pie and Almond Butter Chia Seed Pudding, Quinoa Pizza Bites, and Slow Cooker Barbecue Turkey. Monday brings Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta and Tuesday is a Grilled Greek Chicken Thighs. Wednesday is Grilled Flank Steak with Tomato Basil Salsa and Thursday is a Rosemary Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Skillet. To end the week, meals include Curry Salmon Burgers and a Lightened Up Cashew Chicken.

Remember to check out the healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plans all with nutritional info and SmartPoints.

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

Every week I like to share highlights form the Slender Kitchen meal plans. I believe meal planning is critical to any long term and effective healthy living or weight loss goals. For me it was the single thing that finally made permanent weight loss achievable. The quote stood true, when I failed to plan, I failed, and I don’t want that to happen to others.

Additionally, I believe that meal planning is a skill that takes time to master and we can all use some help! When I first started meal planning it took up countless hours pouring over recipes, calculating nutritional info and/or points, creating elaborate calendars, and building shopping lists. It was painful. Anything I can do to ease that pain for someone else is a win-win in my book.

Finally, I hope by sharing meal plan ideas, it will help you find a system that works for you. Whether it’s using our meal plans or interactive meal planner, writing one into your weekly planner, or creating your own meal planning system – I hope this feature inspires you to start planning at least a few meals every week. It will save you time, money, and it truly will help you reach your weight loss and healthy living goals.
