Who else needs more of a comfort food meal plan with this cold snap? Brrr! It seems to have really hit the US this week. We’ve created a delicious comfort food meal plan with over 33 different veggies and fruits for the week. I’m telling you each and every recipe hit the spot. I’d say that we’re hitting some next level self care for our bodies!
Meal Plan for the Week of February 15th, 2021
Total unique veggie count for this week’s meal plan, just for dinners: 33! Add a green smoothie, salad for lunch, or snack on some fruit to get you even more! We build our plans to have a variety of proteins and diversity of fruits & veggies. You’ll get even more variety in your breakfast and lunches, exceeding the goal for optimum gut health diversity of 30 servings per week.
- Order in / Take out!
It was easier for us to support local and order in for everyone since we didn’t really mind much about the big game. It was a nice carefree way to end the weekend with all the kiddos we had around!
- Broccoli Casserole from Paleo Running Momma (or you can be creative with what you have on hand and make up your own.)
Is it just me or don’t you just love a good casserole in winter? Broccoli rice is one of my all time favorite combinations. It definitely helps that you can cook a huge batch to feed an entire brood of kids like we had this week. Or cook it once and freeze portions as a side dish, lunch or dinner for another day.
Unique fruit & veggie varieties – 8: onion, garlic, tapioca starch, sage, rosemary, cauliflower, broccoli, avocado
Protein type: poultry
- Egg Roll in a Bowl from Paleo Running Mama or from Cook Once Eat All Week, we have our own recipe coming VERY soon!
We’ve been making this so much we have come to have our own twist. We’ve been fine tuning it in the last few weeks. We’ll post it very soon, but I think you’re going to like how we change it up!
Unique fruit & veggie varieties – 5: lime, green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, ginger, scallions

Another take out fake out meal to please the entire crew! We added green beans as an additional veggie to really round out the meal.
Unique fruit & veggie varieties – 7: cassava, orange, sesame seeds, peas, celery, mushrooms, green beans

It was COLD and SNOWY and we needed some veggie packed warmth. This chili delivered and MORE!
Unique fruit & veggie varieties – 7: butternut squash, yellow onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, jalapeño, green chiles, cilantro

Friday night fridge clean out!
Another chilly night called for some soup and rolls to go along with family game night. The chowdah was a perfect combination for yet another win for the kids against the adults.

About our weekly menu
You are not alone in your struggle to put healthy meals on the table without spending all day in the kitchen. Trying to get in a variety of fruits, veggies, and protein while using local, seasonal ingredients, not to mention a variety of proteins and healthy fats, while not spending all day in the kitchen. Work, virtual school, parenting, maintaining social relationship in a time of quarantine… life is hard enough without the additional stress of what to meal plan and cook. But that’s why we’re here!
You can read about how we meal plan to do your own, or you can use each weekly post as your own menu or just for inspiration. Not every meal, every week will work for you and your family. But, I hope at least I can recommend some new, fun things and provide inspiration for your family to plan ahead in a way that works for you. We hope your whole family enjoys!
