Free weekly meal plan #20 includes a menu, meal breakdown, example days with meals, and macronutrients. The recipes are easy, healthy, and family-friendly!
Free Weekly Meal Plan #20
Meal planning has been such a huge game-changer in my life. From freeing up time during the week to helping me meet my nutrition goals, having a weekly meal plan really helps me take on a busy schedule with confidence.
Because of this, I’m making free weekly meal plans with my recipes. Here’s free weekly meal plan #20!
I'm giving you an easy meal plan for 2 people. This is great if you want a basic foundation for a week of eating, or if you want to just work on adding more home-cooked meals into your life. However, you can scale up recipes to feed a whole family!
Meal Plan #20
Our weekly meal plans got an upgrade! These meal plans have all the same features you love, but are easier to read, printable, and easier on the eyes. There's also a shopping list!
This meal plan works great for 2 people for about 5 days. I’ve included all of the recipes I used in the meal plan, along with the macronutrient breakdowns of each meal.
Please use this as a starting point! Adjust meals as needed for your personal dietary and nutritional needs.
You can follow the plan, tweak it to suit your needs, or go fully custom with the help of my Weekly Meal Plan Template and other included resources.
Menu for the Week
This graphic shows the menu for the week. There are two breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, drinks, and desserts.
These recipes can be meal prepped ahead of time or made the day they’re meant to be enjoyed. The meals will be enough for 2 people to last from Monday-Friday.
Meal Plan Shopping List
Intimidated by the shopping list? Don't be! Remember that some of these items—especially spices and pantry staples—might be items you already have or can easily build up over time.
If it still seems like a big task, remember you can always select certain meals "a la carte" below by clicking on the recipe and looking at the ingredients list for each one.
I try to make simple meals without a lot of unnecessary ingredients, but sometimes a less common item will make it into the list. Remember that you can always look at the recipes for substitutes, too, or get creative with your own modifications!
Example Days of Eating
Here are two example days of how the meals can be split up. This is an example of how the meals can be split up to fuel your day. Each day has the food along with the macronutrients for the day so you can stay on track.
Printable meal plan
When asking for feedback about the meal plans, one of the most requested features was to have the option to print meal plans. Ask & you shall receive! Download & print if you'd like. This PDF also has clickable links to the recipes!
Meal Plan Recipes
Here is a list of the recipes used in the meal plan below:
Peanut Butter Overnight Oats: These oats are creamy, delicious, and taste like a peanut butter-lover's dream (oh, and they have actual Reese's Pieces)! This is the easiest breakfast to meal-prep. You can tweak the recipe for what works for you!
Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole: This cheesy hashbrown casserole recipe that is so easy you could accidentally make it! I'm pairing it with a toasted English muffin & a cheese wedge.
Panera Green Goddess Salad: Can't make it to Panera for your favorite Panera Green Goddess Salad? Here's a copycat version to make right at home.
Firecracker Chicken Bowls: I'm making a batch of this firecracker chicken and pairing with ½ cup of brown rice and 1 cup of broccoli. This will be perfect for on-the-go and quick lunches!
Healthy Chicken Enchiladas: These easy, chicken-cheesy, and incredibly tasty enchiladas are the BEST. I love them on their own or with some tortilla chips & salsa.
Chipotle Lime Turkey Burgers: The best grilled turkey burgers to welcome summer!
Snacks / Desserts:
Lemon Yogurt Parfait: This lemon yogurt parfait is a high-protein bowl of lemon creme & vanilla swirly goodness! This healthy recipe uses 4 ingredients & takes 4 minutes to make.
String Cheese Sticks: I like to pick up the light string cheese sticks from whichever grocery store I go to. Snack on whatever flavor cheese stick you like best!
Every week I pick a few high-protein snacks off my 20 high-protein, low-carb snacks list.
