Kicking off the New Year with my 7 day healthy eating meal plan.
Happy January 1st and welcome to 2018! I’m stopping in for a quick post today to share some more healthy eating inspiration. Tomorrow I’ll have plenty of brand new healthy recipes coming your way, but first, I wanted to give you all some sample meals to inspire your eats for the coming week. Below I’ve jotted down what I plan to make for my family and I (and whomever else is still lingering around) this week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even some snacks too. I also gave a few tips on how you can start prepping these recipes TODAY to make your first week of 2018 so much easier. I prefer to take care of as much of the food prep when I have the time. It’s a huge time saver and helps to keep me organized, thus making meals throughout the week so much simpler.
Hope you all enjoy this delicious meal plan, I can’t wait to finally dive into 2018! Wishing all a happy New Year!

Thank you Laura!
I like this recipe list and am looking forward to healthy January! I hope you had a wonderful first day of the new year and are still enjoying your time with everyone. One of my favorite things about guests is being able to cook a bunch of recipes I’ve been wanting to try and not having to worry about leftovers ?. I like the meal prep guide and think I’ll have to prep some food this week, to leave for my mom before I head back to college. Do you have any good breakfast pastries I could prep then freeze? Maybe your nutrigrain bars? Or the ricotta banana bread? Or even your cashew cream bars? Either way, I’m excited for the healthy January recipes and hope you’re staying warm! 🙂
Also, Happy New Year Tieghan! ☺️??
I personally love the banana bread so much!! Thanks Kristin! 🙂

Thank you Amber! I hope you love this!
Great Meal Plan. I always feel challenged putting together meal plans. And tips are always helpful.
One thing I always get stuck on is snacks. Sue, a piece a fruit or yogurt is fine, but just not very inspired.
Thank you Joyce!
