Kelly’s Thought for Food- Weekly Meal Plan + Shopping List: Week 2

So, what have we got on tap for this second week of meals? Well I’ve put together a shopping list that includes all ingredients for dinners and lunch, and some optional items if you plan to add in breakfast items. I of course added in at least one snack and one baked good, because I love sweets and try to have at least something every week on hand to tend to my cravings!

Weekly Menu


I tend to trade off between overnight oats and smoothies throughout the week. Mix and match, add toppings, that’s what I love most about breakfast, it’s whatever you are craving!


Most of the week, we tend to try and eat leftovers from dinner but occasionally there are days we want something else or run out of leftovers, so this week I will make a big batch of black beans to have on hand for various taco bowls or my favorite tacos.

  • Leftovers
  • Basic Black Bean Tacos


Sunday: Garlic Chili Tofu with Ramen (recipe to be posted on Instagram this afternoon). Similar to My Weekly Ramen Night

Monday: My Easy Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Tuesday: My Black Bean & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Wednesday: Flex Night/ Take Out or extra salad fixings for an easy night

Thursday: Mia’s One Pan Honey Mustard Meal

Friday: Smitten Kitchen’s Zucchini Fritters

Saturday: My Kitchen Sink Frittata *with the name, you can guess it’s whatever you got around for this one. Technique on how to make a frittata will be shared!
