As we head into Thanksgiving next week, this meal plan focuses on quick and easy dishes that won’t take too long to prepare since you may have a day full of cooking ahead of you. It also focuses on bringing in lots of unique flavors to keep things interesting all week.
This week kicks off with delicious Broccoli and Cheddar Egg Muffins and a Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken for dinner. Monday brings Broccoli Mac and Cheese and Tuesday is Spice Crusted Pork Chops. Mid-week meals include Healthier Mongolian Ground Beef and then it’s a day off for Thanksgiving! Finally to end the week, there is a sweet and spicy Honey Chiptole Salmon and Chicken Yakitori.
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 Mediterranean Chicken: Slow cooked tender chicken thighs, tomatoes, red pepper, and olives come together to make the most delicious chicken dish.
Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins: I make these constantly to have in the house for a quick breakfast or protein packed snack. I love this classic combination of cheddar cheese and broccoli, plus it is a great way to get the kiddos to eat veggies.
Healthy Mongolian Ground Beef: This recipe is a twist on classic Mongolian Beef but is much easier to prepare since it uses lean ground beef. You don’t have to worry about how to slice the meat nice and thin or about the meat becoming tough because it cooked too long.
