Healthy Weeknight Meal Plan (#16)

We’re up to Week 16 already!  That’s four months of healthy plans to keep you on track and make your life easier.  I must apologize for missing last week.  I had some hacker issues going on with the blog that demanded my time so I didn’t make my deadline!  No worries though because when my 30 Day Meal Plan book comes out in September, you’ll have everything you need.  I can’t wait to share new and easy recipes with you!

In the meantime, I’ve got a week full of tantalizing international flavors for you!

Healthy Weeknight Meal Plan (#16) | Simply Fresh Dinners

We’ve got loads of veggies in this week’s menus and there’s healthy proteins along with them to keep those growing kids satisfied.  And of course, all the meals are quick and easy!

Healthy Tex Mex Black Bean Burrito Bake  |  Cotter Crunch

Lindsay sums it up best with her description of her amazing dish.

 “So delicious and super easy to make!  A family favorite that even non fish eaters love!  This salmon black bean burito bake is simple, light, high in Omega 3’s, kid friendly and feeds a crowd”

I’m a big fan of Lindsay’s healthy recipes and guess what?  It’s only 35 minutes to make!

Crockpot Honey Harissa Chicken with Chickpeas, Feta and Jeweled Pomegranate Rice  

Half Baked Harvest

To look at this recipe, you’d never guess that it’s a quick and easy weeknight dinner but it only requires 10 minutes of prep before it goes into the slow cooker!  Tieghan is a food genius, in my opinion.  That may sound a little over the top to you but when you visit her blog, you’ll agree.  Her ability to combine and create new flavors is so fun to watch and I’m always looking forward to her next post on Instagram.

This simple soup has a depth of flavor that will surprise you.  I’m also running a Vitamix Giveaway on this page so you won’t want to miss it. This comes together in 30 minutes and the delicate taste will have everyone asking for seconds.

Healthy Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps |  Simply Fresh Dinners for Outdoor Families Magazine

I created this recipe for Outdoor Families Magazine and it’s the perfect accompaniment to the soup.  Make some extra chicken on Tuesday night and you can use the leftovers for this yummy wrap.  Easy Peasy!

Mini Tuna Pizza  |  Ominivore’s Cookbook

Maggie has created some delicious snacks for a fun Friday night dinner.  You can accompany these with the scrumptious salad and dressing below and you’ve got a fun, full meal.  End of the week meals seem to be casual and ‘grab as you go’ so this works well for everyone.  You’ll have most of the ingredients in your pantry.

I love the way Maggie describes this yummy dish….

With one bite into the mini tuna pizza, you’ll feel an explosion of summer flavors in your mouth. Everything comes together perfectly. The mayo and tuna make a creamy and flavorful, sweet and savory topping that goes great with the crunchy, crispy crust. The pineapple is so juicy that it serves the purpose of pizza sauce.”
