Meal Plan 1
A couple of people mentioned they wanted to cook dinner during the week, but needed help with some easy ideas. It is not an easy task getting healthy dinners on the table that everyone will eat after a full day of work.
I made this plan for 3 days out of the week to start.
Day 1(Monday): Slow Cooker Chicken Soup:
Cook on a Sunday. Let it sit in the fridge overnight. The fat will come to the top. Scoop it off. All you have to do is heat and serve for Monday’s dinner! Serve noodles on the side.
This recipe is for the slow cooker. It can also be done on the stove top. It is cheap, healthy and delicious.
Day 2(Wednesday): Bowties with Broccoli:
This is easy and so delicious. The kids love it. If it is too many carbs for your liking, fill your own plate up with loads of broccoli and just a little pasta.
Day 3(Thursday): Chicken, Rice and Beans:
Buy two cooked rotisserie chickens on your way home. Make any white or yellow rice that you have in your pantry.(Some rice only takes 5 minutes to cook). Heat a couple of cans of seasoned black beans. In a platter layer the rice, then the beans, then shred the chicken and place on top. You can even have jarred salsa on the side for them if they like to put that on it. This is a dinner I do once a week on the really busy nights because all I have to do is heat beans and make rice.
If you have more time you can prepare Mita’s salsa ahead of time as a treat! If you want to fancy up your beans you can try Fancy Beans. Otherwise, just keep it simple like I mentioned above and it will be delicious, filling and most of all quick!
***I always have bags of prepared salads for myself in case I don’t want the kid’s pizza or pasta. One of my favorites are Eat Smart Sweet Vegetable Kale salad kit. I can eat a whole bag myself!***
Of course if you’re pantry is stocked well it will help when planning your meals…⇓
