Meal Plan Monday: Week of 11/16 (recipes + meal prep)

Happy Monday, healthy mamas!

It's time for another weekly meal plan! We have gotten into a sort of rhythm with our meals, as of late- we're loving making a whole chicken (and then broth) every other week (we get our meat from Butcherbox) and tacos on Tuesday-- and though we've never really been one for themes, it's working for us, as of late! The less stress around meals, the BETTER.

Scroll down for this week's meal plan + meal prep plan to make it happen this week.

Here's our plan, for the week:

Meal 1: Whole Roasted Chicken with roasted veggies

I love making a whole chicken in the slow cooker, and this is my favorite way to make it in the oven!

Meal 2: Comfy Chicken Soup

After a whole chicken always comes broth, and then chicken soup!

Meal 3: Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos

We're making them basically like these, with black beans instead of tempeh.

Meal 4: Sweet Potato, Kale and white bean soup with chicken sausage

This is one of our favorite cozy fall meals!

Meal 5: Perfect sauteed salmon with rice + veggies I'm coming on live on Instagram on Thursday to share with you how I make my favorite salmon!

What I'm prepping ahead

This week I'm using a combination meal prep style (I teach the three meal prep styles in my healthy mama meal prep course).

  • Roast chicken

  • Chop veggies: carrots, celery and onion (soups and broth)

  • Chop veggies: roasted veggies

  • Make broth (overnight)

  • Chop sweet potatoes (for soups)

  • Cook black beans

Hands-on time: ~30 minutes (total time, about 75 including roasting chicken)

Ready to learn my method for easy meal prep that will help you eat well, all week long- without exhaustion (and learn how to be a better cook, while you're at it?)

Check out my best-selling course, Healthy Mama Meal Prep. This isn't your average meal prep course (we don't do average, over here!). This is the one and only meal prep course that teaches you how to meal prep for YOU with my signature three-style meal prep method. Because just like with nutrition, there is no one-size-fits-all way to meal prep! Learn more and get your meal prep on, today!

Have a beautifully balanced week, friends!
