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

Breakfast:

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!

Lunch:

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

Dinner:

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!
