I know that many people aren’t nearly as excited about meal planning as I am (I can’t imagine why). If you are someone who breaks out in hives just thinking about sitting down and planning out food for an entire WEEK, then I have a treat for you! There are many different sites dedicated to meal plans, but most of them are costly (especially the ones geared towards healthy recipes).
I have a resource that changes weekly, is created by a team of registered dietitians, includes nutrition information and is filled with easy-to-follow, delicious receipes. Sound too good to be true? Think again! The healthybites menu suggestions are here to save the day.
These menus can be found online and change weekly. The great part is that they correspond with Hy-Vee’s weekly sales ads, so the ingredients in the recipes are on sale. They even go so far as to include a shopping list complete with everything you will need to complete your weekly meals. You can’t get much better than this.
I will often use these menus as a resource when planning my own weekly menus and have yet to be disappointed in any of the recipes. This week’s menu includes recipes for Mustard-Glazed Salmon and Asian Vegetable-Beef Noodle Bowl. Next week (shh… it’s a secret until the new ad comes out) has a very delicous-sounding Chicken Pasta with HummusYogurt Sauce with only 5 ingredients (not counting the salt and pepper) that will be making its way to my table in the future. How simple is that?!
