Healthy Weekly Meal Plan 10.17.2015

HWMP Collage 10.17 w veg options

Welcome to another week of healthy meal planning!  I hope you’ve had a great week, and that it gets even better once you’ve gotten your stress-free meal plan in place. 🙂  I’m hoping for a weather cool-down so I can enjoy my fall favorites.  Soup and chili are much more enjoyable when it’s not 80-90 degrees, am I right?

We have plenty of fall flavors for you this week with pumpkin, butternut squash, and sweet potato, and then a comforting slow cooker soup and spicy chili to round things out.  Don’t forget our handy printable shopping list and meal plan at the bottom of this post, and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Monday
