I’ve been sharing 5-day meal plans with my email subscribers for many years now, started sharing some of those on Instagram and I love the feedback I get from those who love the meal plans and use them regularly.

If you’re new to my meal plans, they normally include 5 dinner recipes and one or two desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth. I’m trying my best to be thoughtful and add a variety of recipes with plenty of wiggle room for you to add or subtract food and I always suggest you make a day per week for leftovers or use them for lunch the next day.

📅 Food Holidays

This week we are having some interesting and fun days to celebrate. These days are a good opportunity to raise awareness, shed some light, or inspire you to create more recipes in your kitchen. So let’s check them out:

🍊 In Season Now

January is the season for citrus. Oranges, lemon, limes, mandarin oranges are all in season. Beets, turnip and celery roots are still in season.

Meal Prep Tricks

  • Prepare meatloaf on Sunday and freeze for later in the week, double to use in another week.
  • Marinade chicken tenders on Sunday too, they refrigerate for up to 3-4 days.
  • Leftover Mujadara is great for lunch next day and freezes well too.
  • Buy pre-chopped or pre-cored veggies if possible. Your time is worth money.
  • Remember you can always switch the days around and do not forget to check the rest of the meal plans.
  • Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables are bursting with Mediterranean flavors from a special spice mix of oregano, sumac, dried basil and more. Use any combination of vegetables you have in your fridge for a delicious and healthy side dish any day of the week.
