This 2-Week Healthy Meal Plan includes a done-for-you Grocery List and everything you need to have two weeks of healthy high-protein, high-fiber dinners ready to go! The recipes included in this free meal plan are flavorful, simple, nutritious, and family-friendly. This meal plan is FREE to everyone and includes a grocery list for each week.
This meal plan was created in partnership with the Northern Pulse Growers Association.
What Is Included In This 2-Week Healthy Meal Plan #5?
The 2-Week Healthy Eating Meal Plan includes two weeks of healthy recipes planned for you and created by registered dietitians. The meal plan consists of 4 healthy dinners each week (with weekly grocery lists) plus suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. If you are a family of 4 or less, then the dinner recipes also provide enough leftovers to be used for easy lunches during the week.
This meal plan is meant to be flexible in order to fit your lifestyle and preferences. We leave breakfasts, lunches, and snacks open for you to plan because we know that many individuals have their go-to’s when it comes to these meals. For example, you could enjoy a smoothie or baked oatmeal for breakfast every morning and a big salad or leftovers for lunch. We want this plan to work for you, so we’ve keep it flexible and easy to follow.
Our ultimate goal with this meal plan is that it is realistic for you to follow and that it doesn’t require you to make a new recipe for every meal of the day. We’ve instead decided to focus on the biggest pain point when it comes to meal planning – dinners that work and everyone looks forward to eating!
What You Get In This Healthy Meal Plan
In this 2-Week Healthy Meal Plan you’ll get:
- 4 delicious, family-friendly dinner recipes each week – to make in whatever way works best for you – whether that’s weekend batch-cooking, prepping some of the ingredients ahead so they’re ready when you are, or making the recipe start to finish on each day as you go
- Weekly grocery shopping list – one new grocery list for each of the two weeks in the plan
- Suggestions for healthy breakfasts, lunches, and snacks
- Flexibility – we’ve built in days for using leftovers, making your own favorite recipes, or even getting takeout or delivery (because we all like a break from cooking once in a while). Feel free to move days around, double a recipe or two so you have more leftovers, or swap out some of the recipes altogether to use your family’s favorites.
- BYOM – On Sunday’s it’s a “Build Your Own Meal (BYOM)” . We encourage you to use what you have leftover from the week.
- All recipes are high protein, high fiber, and gluten-free and have suggestions for other dietary modifications
- An optional 2-Week Workout Plan that you could pair with this meal plan for two weeks of planned fitness and healthful eating
