These healthy meal plans are for six dinner recipes and a dessert thrown in for fun! All of these recipes are (mostly) paleo friendly, seasonal, and most can be easily adapted to be Keto/Low-Carb or Whole30 friendly.
Yay! February! I love this month. Valentine’s Day, for us, is super low expectations and I just love all the cutest decor and treats.
Which is why I included my adorable Mini Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe and a super easy dinner for two.
Don’t worry, there are other things to keep you fed. We can’t eat chocolate cake every day, right? (With those… maybe you can though?)
BAKED MEDITERRANEAN SALMON — You’ll love this sheet pan salmon dinner with roasted squash, artichoke hearts, and feta!
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo & Whole30 friendly (without the feta) and low carb.
Prep Ahead: You can slice the squash and prep the marinade ahead of time if you like. Having the Greek Seasoning made ahead of time is helpful too.
Substitutions: Feel free to use another type of vegetable if you prefer. Make sure it’s sliced small and it’s quick cooking. Really thinly sliced zucchini, small broccoli florets, shredded Brussels sprouts, or asparagus would work well here.
HEALTHY SESAME CHICKEN — Soy-free, refined sugar-free, and gluten-free, this simple recipe requires 30 minutes or less! Serve it up with rice and veggies for a complete meal.
Special Diet Note: This quick and easy chicken recipe is paleo.
Prep Ahead: The recipe comes together in just about 30 minutes so no advance prep is needed.
Substitutions: You can use liquid aminos or soy sauce instead of coconut aminos if you’d like.
EASY CABBAGE ROLL SOUP — This easy & delicious Instant Pot Cabbage Roll Soup has all of the flavors of traditional cabbage rolls without all of the tedious work! Toasted ground beef, tender pieces of cabbage, and a tangy tomato broth combine for an easy weeknight meal that my whole family loves.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is gluten free..
Prep Ahead: Chopping the cabbage ahead of time might safe you a few minutes.
Substitutions: If you’d like this recipe to be grain free and lower carb, omit the rice.
SLOW COOKER POT ROAST — This Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe is the easiest one pot meal and is an instant win for family dinner!
Special Diet Note: Paleo, whole30 and easy to make low-carb!
