Heyo! Happy weekend! We are in Iowa this weekend for my step-sisters WEDDING!! Be sure to follow me on Instagram (username: greensnchocolate) and Snapchat (username: greenschocolate) to see all the fun times!
You might notice something a little different about this week’s meal plan – there are only four recipes! Don’t worry – we will be back the week after Thanksgiving with the usual five meals. We made up for it with some extra tasty dinners this week.
For the week of Thanksgiving we also have something fun and different. We figured since the main meal you will be planning for is Thanksgiving, we would give you some of our favorite healthy Thanksgiving dishes! So be sure to come back next Saturday for some last-minute Thanksgiving meal planning.
All right – now onto this week’s meal plan! Have a great weekend.
Minestrone Soup with Quinoa from The Roasted Root.
Prep Ahead: This recipe comes together rather quickly, but if you’d like, you can chop the vegetables ahead of time. You can add chicken for protein.
One Pot Mexican Black Bean Sweet Potato Quinoa from Flavor the Moments.
Prep Ahead: Veggies can be prepped in advance. The meal comes together in 30-40 minutes!
Butternut Squash, Bacon, and Gruyere Pasta from greens & chocolate.
Prep Ahead/Vegetarian Option: Roast the squash and/or make sauce day in advance. Omit bacon for vegetarian.
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Pizza from Cookie Monster Cooking.
Prep Ahead: Black bean puree may be made in advance. Additionally, the sweet potatoes may also be sauteed in advance. Serve with a side salad! If you don’t want to buy manchego, another cheese of choice can be used instead (although the manchego is delicious here!).
