Meal Planning

Meal planning can save both time and money. Planning and shopping for a week of dinners will save daily trips to the grocery store and will save money by preventing impulse buying. Below are two meal plans consisting of 5 dinners each, one being vegetarian. Both meal plans consist of recipes that take under an hour to prepare so they are perfect for those busy weeknights!

Meal plan 1:
Monday: Why not end the monday blues with a delicious and easy dish. Smoked Gouda and Bacon Quiche is a dish packed full of flavour the whole family will love. Serve with a fresh green salad.

Tuesday: Italian Turkey Meatloaf is no ordinary meatloaf. This healthy alternative to the ground beef version does not sacrifice flavour. Serve with a side of rice and steamed veggies.

Wednesday: Need a little kick to get you through the rest of your week? Why not throw some spice into your Wednesday dinner? Bucatini Matriciana is a tasty tomato base pasta with pancetta and chili peppers.

Thursday: Set your alarm 10 minutes early and have dinner ready by the time you get home. Slow Cooker Chili takes only ten minutes to prepare.

Friday: The end of the week is finally here so celebrate with something extra tasty! The whole family will enjoy this classic, Spaghetti Carbonara.

Meal plan 2 (vegetarian):
Monday: Start the week off with a dish packed full of flavour. Spaghetti, Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino is a delicious Italian dish that will be sure to satisfy your tastebuds.

Tuesday: Vegan Mexican Stuffed Peppers is a healthy yet hearty dish.

Wednesday: Looking for an alternative to pasta? Try Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. This recipe is so good you won’t miss the carbs! Serve with a side of mixed beans drizzled with balsamic vinegar for an extra kick of protein.

Thursday: Add a little decadence to your Thursday with Mushroom Risotto. You may want to double the recipe because you will definitely be going back for seconds!

Friday: It’s Friday, you deserve a treat… a cheesy treat! Cacio e Pepe will satisfy the biggest of cheese lovers!
