Sunday

Special Diet Note: Using a lettuce bun and omitting the cheese makes these burgers paleo. Throw that cheese back on to make them low-carb/keto friendly

Wednesday

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED TURKEY MEATBALLS — These meatballs are packed with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, feta, kalamata olives and fresh garlic are wildly flavorful and deceptively easy to make! Serve these baked meatballs with your favorite side dishes.

Thursday

CREAMY AVOCADO SPINACH PASTA — This pasta can be made with any kind of grain-free pasta you like or even with zucchini noodles. The lightning-quick sauce sauce is packed with lots of green goodness!

Substitutions: If you’re dairy-free, use dairy-free plain yogurt or cream cheese in place of the Greek yogurt.

Friday

THAI CHICKEN CHOPPED SALAD — This salad is packed with crunchy cabbage, carrot, toasted cashews, and a delicious creamy sesame ginger peanut dressing. It’s a vibrant, feel-good meal that leaves you energized and happy.

Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo as written. Omit the pure maple syrup from the dressing to make the recipe Whole30 compliant.

Prep Ahead: The dressing can be made up to 5 days ahead of time. You’ll need already cooked chicken, so if you’re making the chicken (rather than using store-bought pre-cooked chicken), you can do so up to 5 days in advance.

Substitutions: Use your favorite protein for the salad in place of chicken. Add or subtract veggies to your personal taste.

Dessert

10-MINUTE COCOA CHILE PECANS — This is a super easy stovetop recipe that will give you sweet, chocolatey pecans with a little hint of cayenne. (Or a big hint of cayenne, if you like.)

Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed!
