As we head into the last week in November and come off of a food filled holiday last week, this week’s meal plan is the perfect way to get back into the swing of things. It’s filled with dishes your family will love and are easy to prepare.
This week kicks off with delicious Breakfast Burritos and a Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala with Cauliflower for dinner. Monday brings Healthy Peanut Noodles with Chicken and Tuesday is Parmesan Crusted Pork Chop. Mid-week meals include One Pan Paprika Chicken and Turkey and Black Bean Tostadas with Cilantro Sauce. Finally to end the week, there is a Honey Lime Shrimp and Teriyaki Flank Steak.
Remember to check out the healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plans all with nutritional info and SmartPoints.
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”
Every week I like to share highlights form the Slender Kitchen meal plans. I believe meal planning is critical to any long term and effective healthy living or weight loss goals. For me it was the single thing that finally made permanent weight loss achievable. The quote stood true, when I failed to plan, I failed, and I don’t want that to happen to others.
Additionally, I believe that meal planning is a skill that takes time to master and we can all use some help! When I first started meal planning it took up countless hours pouring over recipes, calculating nutritional info and/or points, creating elaborate calendars, and building shopping lists. It was painful. Anything I can do to ease that pain for someone else is a win-win in my book.
Finally, I hope by sharing meal plan ideas, it will help you find a system that works for you. Whether it’s using our meal plans or interactive meal planner, writing one into your weekly planner, or creating your own meal planning system – I hope this feature inspires you to start planning at least a few meals every week. It will save you time, money, and it truly will help you reach your weight loss and healthy living goals.

Some highlights from this week’s meal plan!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala with Cauliflower: This Indian dish is one of our favorite take out foods, but the original version can be packed with calories and fat from lots of heavy cream. This homemade, lightened up version still has tons of flavor but is something you can eat guilt free.
Overnight Raspberry Oatmeal: Overnight oatmeal is something I make whenever I know I have a busy week ahead of me. It’s easy to pull out of the fridge and I enjoy it hot or cold.
Crispy Balsamic Brussel Sprouts: These Brussels sprouts are one of the most popular recipes on Slender Kitchen and they are truly delicious. In my opinion, they are good enough to make almost anyone love Brussels sprouts.
