7-Day Healthy Meal Plan

As the world slowly starts to get back to “normal” that also means more sports and after school activities- back to being busy (I’m not complaining)! But to help keep my sanity I love being able to rely on  slow cooker recipes (throw it in in the morning and it’s ready when you get home) like my Crock Pot Italian Sloppy Joe. The same goes for meal prep recipes -like Breakfast Egg Rolls -just reheat and grab to go on crazy mornings.

This one-pan cooking method builds a deeply savory, vegetable-packed broth while also keeping the chicken breasts super tender and juicy. Mushrooms, ginger, and coconut milk go a long way in building flavor without taking much time at all. Although the rice or quinoa is optional, I loved adding it to soak up the wonderful broth. The cucumber sesame salad is the perfect fresh side that compliments the whole dish. For more coconut milk recipes, try my Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk and Salmon Coconut Curry with Spinach and Chickpeas.

These turkey meatballs are seasoned like Italian sausage with fennel seeds, paprika, and red pepper. They’re incredibly light and tender – the tip is adding chicken broth to the meat. I roasted them with cauliflower, broccoli, and red bell peppers, but you can use whatever you have on hand. Perfect for meal prep too!

This salad made with Navel oranges from California, avocados, and red onions is served on mixed baby greens and topped with a citrus vinaigrette.

7-Day Healthy Meal Plan

Seems like spring can’t decide if it is here to stay or not yet…but even with the up and down temperatures- farmers markets are starting to open. I LOVE a good farmers market!! Early finds often include tomatoes, cucumbers and different varieties of lettuce— perfect for making salads such as my Greek Chickpea Salad, Spiralized Greek Cucumber Salad with Lemon and Feta or my Avocado Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette.

These Asparagus and Feta Tartlets with Phyllo Crust taste as amazing as they look. At their peak in Spring, the asparagus are tangy and bright after a quick sauté and a splash of lemon juice. The feta adds briny flavor, but goat cheese would also work beautifully. If you’re looking for more individual tarts for Spring, you’ll also love these Asparagus and Caramelized Onion Tartlets and Layered Potato Cups with Spring Herbs and Leeks.

The bright green color of this Spring Pea and Fresh Herbs Soup is lovely. It will fade a little if you save the soup for the next day, but what you trade off in color, you gain in even deeper flavor that comes from the ingredients melding together. The lemony yogurt topping is cool and creamy and brightens up the dish. For more of my favorite pureed soups, try this Cream of Asparagus Leek Soup with Crème Fraiche and Cream of Zucchini Soup.
