Meal Plan Monday November 15th

It’s a kid’s favorites meal plan week this week. Which surprisingly still pushed us to 35 different veggies on the meal plan for the week. We are finding more and more root veggies and fall favorites at our local markets too.

Total unique veggie count for this week’s meal plan, just for dinners: 35!  Add a green smoothie, salad for lunch, or snack on some fruit to get you even more!

              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!
