Meal-Planning Mondays // Week 1

How to Meal Plan: A Clean Eating Primer from Real Food Real Deals #healthy #recipes #mealplanningHappy Monday, friends!

This week, I’m kicking off a new series on Mondays, called “Meal-Planning Mondays.” I was inspired to do this after actually taking the time this week to plan out our lunches & dinners for this week.

Each Monday, I’ll post the five meals I’m planning to make for dinner that week. The leftovers can be packed for lunch the next day! Since some people aren’t “breakfast people,” I’ll leave your AM meals up to you. I’ll post a link to the recipe, a grocery shopping list, and a downloadable meal planning template for you to enjoy!

Sunday Supper // Hearty + Healthy Chicken, Mushroom, and Zucchini Fettuccine

Sundays are a great day to push the “reset” button for healthy meals, especially after fall football weekends, filled with not-so-healthy chicken wings, beer, and loaded nachos!

I made this dish for lunch today, but it’s an easy, delicious, healthy and hearty meal that is perfect for a cozy Sunday dinner at home, too. Enjoy for dinner tonight, and save the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! The zucchini ribbons trick your brain into thinking you’re having twice the pasta you are actually eating – with 1/3 the calories!
