Free weekly meal plan #26 includes a menu, meal breakdown, example days with meals, and macronutrients. The recipes are easy, healthy, and family-friendly!
Free Weekly Meal Plan #26
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 #26!
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 #26
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.
Meal Plan Recipes
Here is a list of the recipes used in the meal plan below:
These pancake sausage bites are a delicious and healthy breakfast idea! This 3-ingredient recipe is perfect for meal prep and busy mornings.
- Serve these pancake bites with fresh fruit of your choice! I love blueberries and strawberries this time of year.
Say good morning to the cheesy hashbrown casserole recipe that is so easy you could accidentally make it!
- Serve the hashbrown with a toasted english muffin and a cheese wedge smeared on the muffin. In my opinion, the toast is the perfect compliment!
Give yourself the gift of avocado and bacon inside this delicious California turkey club wrap! This is the perfect 3 minute lunch recipe (and the ultimate present to yourself).
- Serve the wrap with crunchy, fresh veggies like carrots or celery.
Got 5 minutes? Got these 5 ingredients? Then you've got what you need for this healthy chicken salad recipe! It's quick, easy, and perfect for a lunch for two.
- Serve the chicken salad with some sort of crackers, like wheat thins! Or serve with rice cakes, bread, a wrap, or fresh veggies.
Everything you thought you knew about a grilled turkey burger? Throw it out. Unless you knew how to make this incredible chipotle lime turkey burger, somehow. Then you can keep that.
- I'm serving these turkey burgers with sweet potato fries! Instead of making my own, I'm keeping it easy and using freezer fries found at the grocery store.
You may not have known what your summer was missing, but now you know. These Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers are the ultimate easy grill-ready crowd pleaser that hits all the right notes.
- I'm serving these chicken skewers with this cool tzaziki dip (a MUST). Since the grill will already be fired up, we're going to serve up some grilled veggies mixed in olive oil with salt and pepper as well. Squash or zucchini is our plan!
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.
- Here's a video tutorial I shared this week!
This is one of my favorite protein bars! It's packed with protein, tastes like cooke dough, and is perfect for on-the-go. Use the code JORDO for a discount!
- Fruit - Choose whatever fruit you like best to enjoy this week! I'm choosing banana and berries.
This is my favorite protein drink because it has 30 grams of protein & tastes DELICIOUS. Here's the link to find it near you!
I'm making a batch of these to keep in the freezer as well. They're the perfect night-cap on a hot summer night.
Veggies & Hummus
I'm going to have raw carrots & red pepper hummus for an afternoon snack all week.
- Every week I pick a few high-protein snacks off my 20 high-protein, low-carb snacks list.
