Happy Sunday, meal preppers! It’s time for my first new weekly meal plan of the new year, and with all the upgrades around here, I’m so excited to share! This week’s plan features plenty of fresh veggies and flavor – I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what my body needs after all the holiday indulgence and illness.
If you’ve never been here before, welcome! My meal prep posts go a little something like this: 1) meal plan (use any or all of it!), 2) snack ideas, and 3) links to the containers you see here. You can also download a free, printer-friendly version of the meal plan along with all of the recipes, nutrition info, and scannable My Fitness Pal barcodes. These printer friendly meal plans are exclusive content for email subscribers, but once you sign up, you’ll be able to access all my weekly meal plans that are available in printer-friendly format! I’m still working to update old meal plans with this new feature, but all future ones will have this available. And bonus – you can also access these plans early, sometimes up to a week ahead of non-subscribers!

The Meal Plan
You may notice that my weekly meal plans only account for 6 out of the 7 days of the week. Don’t worry, that’s intentional and there are a few reasons for it. First, food freshness is quickly fading by day 6 and I don’t like to push beyond that limit. Second, I like to leave a little room for spontaneity, so I give myself some space in my meal plan for one or two meals of takeout or dining out (usually on the weekend). You can adjust this meal plan to meet your needs, but I always share what I’m actually prepping and eating so you can decide if it will work for you too.
Shop the Containers

A mostly healthy baked version of classic oatmeal with an added kick of protein to help you power through your morning! This baked oatmeal is full of juicy blueberries and bananas.

Slightly sweet and spicy ground beef is paired with rice, carrot ribbons, broccoli, and rice.
Easy Greek Chicken Salad
Juicy, brined chicken breast pairs with Mediterranean-inspired flavors, complementing the briny kalamata olives and tangy feta cheese.
