It’s been a while since I posted a weekly meal plan. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been making and following them though. Meal planning is second nature to me now, I can’t function without one. If I didn’t have my trusty list stuck to the fridge, we’d literally have cereal for dinner every night.
It can be hard to think of healthy meals every week. Especially if you’re just starting out on a weight loss journey, or feel stuck in a food rut. I’m going to make a point of sharing my plans each week – if you see something you like the sound of please let me know. I’d love to share the recipes for the most popular dishes!
This week’s meal plan
Monday – curried fish bake
This is a freezer meal from one I made last week. I’d never made this before, and although I need to tweak the recipe a little I was quite surprised by it. Curry flavours with fish is a new thing for me this year, and I’m liking it.
I’ll serve it with brown rice and green beans.
Tuesday – tuna steaks with ratatouille
I love ratatouille at this time of year, it’s a great alternative when it’s too cold for salad. Because it’s so full of flavour, I don’t mess about with the tuna – just grill and serve.
I’ll save some leftovers for lunch.
Wednesday – beef goulash
Speaking of awesome cold-weather dishes, this is such comfort food! Tender beef in a smokey, rich sauce…*drool* You can find my recipe here.
I’ll serve it with mash potato and some mixed veggies, and save some leftovers for lunch.
Thursday – pizza burgers
This was a new recipe I tried last week – turkey burgers topped with pizza sauce, olives and mozarella. They were lush! I made double and froze the extras for this week.
I’ll serve them up without buns, but with a nice big salad.
Friday – chicken chow mein
Fakeaway Friday! I have a love/hate with Chinese food, in that I think I want it and then regret it when I overindulge…MSG is not my friend. Thankfully, when I make my own I always love it!
I’ll add in lot of stir fry friendly veg.
Saturday – burger and chips
Burgers twice in one week! But these are homemade too, so I don’t feel guilty. A nice, lazy dinner made even lazier by the fact that I made these weeks ago. All I need to do is defrost them. I’ll make the chips in the Actifry, and use up any leftover salad.
Sunday – butternut squash and apple soup / chicken tikka masala / fruit crumble and ice cream
It’s our turn to do Sunday dinner! The soup is a new one, but the flavours sound lush and my soup maker never lets me down. I’m a bit nervous doing a curry, as my father-in-law has made some incredible ones over the years, but this is delicious. And the crumble will be apple, pear and plum with an oaty topping, served with light ice cream.
