We are in full blown fall mode around here, even though it’s still pretty hot in LA. For me that means breaking out the chili recipes, making homemade applesauce for pork, and making one of my favorite pizza with fresh pears.
Now let’s talk about this week’s meal plan! This week kicks off with a delicious Banana Oat Pancakes, Curried Chicken Salad, and a Slow Cooker Pepperoni Pizza Chili for dinner! It’s so good. Monday brings One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta with Mushrooms and Spinach and Tuesday is Beef Ranch Burgers with Carrot Fries. Mid-week meals include Pork Chops and Homemade Applesauce and Bang Bang Chicken. Finally to end the week, there is a yummy Hoisin Salmon and Ham, Cheese, and Spinach Pizza with Pears.
Remember to check out the healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plans all with nutritional info and SmartPoints.
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”
Every week I like to share highlights form the Slender Kitchen meal plans. I believe meal planning is critical to any long term and effective healthy living or weight loss goals. For me it was the single thing that finally made permanent weight loss achievable. The quote stood true, when I failed to plan, I failed, and I don’t want that to happen to others.
Additionally, I believe that meal planning is a skill that takes time to master and we can all use some help! When I first started meal planning it took up countless hours pouring over recipes, calculating nutritional info and/or points, creating elaborate calendars, and building shopping lists. It was painful. Anything I can do to ease that pain for someone else is a win-win in my book.
Finally, I hope by sharing meal plan ideas, it will help you find a system that works for you. Whether it’s using our meal plans or interactive meal planner, writing one into your weekly planner, or creating your own meal planning system – I hope this feature inspires you to start planning at least a few meals every week. It will save you time, money, and it truly will help you reach your weight loss and healthy living goals.
