Healthy Meal Plan
Hey friends – This week is full of fall favorites utilizing some yummy seasonal produce like eggplant, broccoli, potatoes, and brussels sprouts. I can’t wait for you to dig in- and my mouth is watering just thinking about the Healthy Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce!
One of my favorite things to do in weekly meal plans leading up to Thanksgiving, is to showcase some delicious side dishes that you can audition for your family. Then you can decide if you want to add them to your Thanksgiving menu. Last week Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes were on the meal plan. Just a friendly reminder – once you make Mashed Potatoes in your IP, you’ll never go back!
Now, this healthy weekly meal plan gives you the opportunity to try Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Parmesan, and Balsamic as well as Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes Au Gratin. They are both unbelievably yummy, and that brussels sprout recipe has converted a brussels hater or two. Just sayin’.
We’ve been working on stocking our freezers lately! This week I highly recommend making a double batch of Baked Eggplant Parmesan and freezing half. I love to freeze right in my Souper Cubes even! Taco casserole and Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Banana Bread freeze like a dream too!

Baked Eggplant Parmesan is on the menu and it is totally worth the full blue…HOWEVER, I have been making it with only half of these cheese for myself and it’s still yummy! Lots of times I will do half the pan with the normal amount of cheese and half with, well, half. One benefit to halving the cheese in the Baked Eggplant Parmesan is, it’s easier to fit into a lunch plan, container wise. And this recipe is DELISH leftover as lunch. Top with some ricotta for red and wow!
Another recipe I have been meaning to make is Ratatouille – with either Italian Chicken Sausage or beans (and count them as a red) and this would be a perfect lunch for the week!
When I meal plan I always start by planning my dinners. Then breakfast, then lunch. And finally, I fill in my snacks for the day with my remaining macros, points, or containers.

It’s still important to follow the 21 Day Fix plan on Saturdays and Sundays for optimal results, but you will likely have leftover meals and ingredients after following this healthy weekly meal plan. And, so, to eliminate food waste, take inventory of your fridge and pantry at the end of the week and create a plan for the weekend. Many people like to get some healthy takeout one night – think yummy salads with grilled protein or a slice of veggie pizza – and we have this helpful Healthy Weekend Meals post to help you even more!
