Healthy Weekly Meal Plan 12.26.2015
Hello, and how was your Christmas? I’d tell you how mine was, but I’m writing this up in advance, which means Christmas hasn’t happened for me yet. All I can say is that I did finally do a lot of baking including gingerbread men, a sugar cookie cake, red velvet cookies, and I have more to do for Christmas Day. Apparently someone got tasked with most of the desserts! That means I will have had my fill of Christmas cookies, etc. by the time you’re reading this, and I’ll be in the same boat as you — needing some nice healthy meals planned out. 🙂
Since this week is New Year’s week, we decided to change things up a bit and give you a fresh, delicious appetizer recipe for New Year’s Eve and a hearty savory egg breakfast for New Year’s Day. We hope you enjoy it, and I hope you have a wonderful week relaxing and enjoying the last week of the year!
Sweet Potato and Quinoa Chili from greens & chocolate.
Prep Ahead: chop up the vegetables a day in advance.
Saffron Vegetable Soup with Quinoa from Flavor the Moments.
Prep Ahead: This soup comes together so quickly, but you can prep your veggies ahead of time to make things go even faster!
Creamy Sweet Potato and Black Bean Pasta Skillet from Cookie Monster Cooking.
Prep Ahead: If using homemade sweet potato puree, this can be made in advance. Otherwise, just use store-bought canned puree for a 30-minute meal!
Strawberry Bruschetta from Spoonful of Flavor.
Prep Ahead: You can use any kind of your favorite fruit. I always use strawberries but you can use grapes, blueberries, cherries and more.
Sweet Potato Home Fries from The Roasted Root.
Prep Ahead: The sweet potatoes can be chopped ahead of time.
