Hello lovely people! I’m back with another week of meal suggestions for you! Once again we have 2 different plans, one for the vegos and one for the meat eaters. Each plan includes 5 recipes for dinner. Most of the recipes serve 4, so if you’re not serving 4 you’ll have some food left over for lunch. Lucky you! There’s also a bonus this week: Shopping list! A downloadable, easily printable PDF that tells you exactly what you need. Broken into sections such as Meat and or Dairy, Fresh Produce and Pantry items.
That little bonus is due to some helpful feedback. If there’s something you want to see whether it be an addition or a change then please let me know by just commenting below! There’s also a key at the end of the shopping list that lets you know what ingredient is for what meal so if you’re leaving a meal or two out you can easily just cross those items form the list.
This week we’ve got burgers and enchiladas, salads and pasta, plus curry and noodles and even some salt ‘n’ pepper prawns. All with some healthy twists and loads of vegetables!
MEAL PLAN A
DAY 1: Basil, Charred Sweet Corn, Cherry Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella Bucatini. Starting the week with some meat free magic to help the world a little! The pasta is mixed with zoodles to lighten things up a bit. You can use gluten free linguini, or if you’re off carbs for some crazy reason just use all zoodles.
DAY 2: Green Chicken Pesto Salad Bowl: It’s time for a salad, and you can use the left over pesto from last nights dinner as the dressing on this salad. Less ingredients to buy, less work in the kitchen.
DAY 3: Harissa and Avocado Chicken Burger: You can use turkey mince instead of chicken in these yummy burgers. The harissa is home made and very easy to whizz up in the food processor. Keep any extra to have on your eggs in the morning!
DAY 4: Salt and Pepper Prawns with Cauliflower Fried Rice. I don’t think you’ll need the greens as well so have left them off the shopping list. The rice itself is a vegetable (cauliflower) so you’re still eating lots of vegetables in this dish.
DAY 5: Roast Chicken Noodles. It doesn’t matter that you haven’t roasted a chicken this week. I added an extra chicken breast to your shopping list and you can grill or poach this before shredding and adding to these noodles.
MEAL PLAN B
DAY 1: Coconut and Ginger Eggplant Curry: So fragrant and delicious, and a quick curry to make.
DAY 2: Black Bean Enchiladas: If there’s just 2 of you you can skip one of the other meals on this list as you should have enough for two nights. You Can skip making the sauce as it’s a week day and just buy passata, to reflect that and make it easier I’ve added the passata to the shopping list. If you want to give the sauce a go just add the items to your grocery list.
DAY 3: Basil, Charred Sweet Corn, Cherry Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella Bucatini. Midweek pasta party!! The pasta is mixed with zoodles to lighten things up a bit. You can use gluten free linguini, or if you’re off carbs for some crazy reason just use all zoodles.
DAY 4: Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes. Serve these with a green salad, I’ve included the ingredients for this in your shopping list.
DAY 5: Miso Noodles with Roasted Cauliflower. Miso keeps really well in the fridge if it’s in an airtight container, you won’t use much of what you purchase in the recipe but I’ll include other recipes in future weeks that use it too!
My favourite after dinner treat. Currently craving one!
