I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of all the yummy foods as well as things and people that fill your soul. But, also, if it was a hard day for you for whatever reason, I’m sending you big hugs and hopes for a restorative weekend!
Since noooobody feels like thinking or prepping a ton, this week’s meal plan is full of no-prep needed recipes. Things you can just whip up without a lot of chopping or fuss to get you through your post Thanksgiving week! We have all earned it!
If you need a lunch idea, think easy bento box/snack tray style! Some ideas: Air Fryer Chicken Tenders with Everything Bagel Seasoning + Maple Mustard Sauce or Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs for protein, your favorite sliced veggies, cheese or hummus for blue, and whole grain or GF crackers. (Did you have a charcuterie board or veggie tray on Thanksgiving? Use up those leftovers at the beginning of 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!
