Healthy Meal Plan #45

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.

Hey, friends!

The thought occurred to me that I always talk about the weather when I do my meal plan intros. It’s not for lack of a better topic — I like to eat seasonally, and often the weather dictates what I’m in the mood for!

March is tricky. At the moment we could have some snow headed our way. Also 60F deg days. It’s a wild month.

We have a mix of cozy comfort foods and lighter meals depending on what the weather is like for you! And, as always, there’s dessert.




GROUND TURKEY SOUP WITH RICE — This soup has a plethora of vegetables and makes the coziest comfort food for chilly weather. High in protein and fiber for a satisfying clean eating dinner recipe!

Special Diet Note: Omit the rice for paleo, whole30, and low-carb.

Prep Ahead: You can cook the rice up to 5 days ahead of time, or use leftover rice. Aside from the rice, no advance prep is needed.

Substitutions: Use your favorite vegetables, such as cauliflower, green beans, peas, corn, etc. You can also use ground beef or chicken instead of ground turkey.


COCONUT SHRIMP CURRY — Making a delicious Thai style curry is easier than you think! I specifically chose ingredients that are easy to find and will give you a take-out quality coconut shrimp curry in under an hour!

Special Diet Note: Omit the rice for paleo, whole30, and low-carb.

Prep Ahead: No need to prep ahead unless you need to pull the tails off your shrimp.

Substitutions: Swap out the vegetables or use thinly sliced chicken or steak in place of the shrimp.


SMOTHERED PORK CHOPS — This cozy recipe features tender pork chops that have been seared in a skillet then cooked with rich mushroom gravy for a delicious main entree. 

Special Diet Note: For paleo and whole30, use 2 teaspoons of tapioca flour instead of gluten-free all-purpose flour.

Prep Ahead: This pork chop recipe comes together rather quickly – no advance prep is needed.

Substitutions: Omit the mushrooms if you aren’t into them. Serve the pork chops with your choice of rice, cauliflower rice, pasta noodles, or mashed potatoes.


CHICKEN PHO SOUP — My short-cut version of pho will give you all of the pho flavors you love in under an hour! Make it traditionally with rice noodles or my low-carb version with zoodles.

Special Diet Note: Using zucchini noodles and coconut aminos makes this paleo, and low-carb. Omit the honey and make sure your fish sauce is sugar free to make it Whole30.

Prep Ahead:Use pre-spiralized zoodles to save yourself some time or prep your zucchini ahead of time.

Substitutions: If you don’t want to use zoodles, use thin rice noodles instead.


SALISBURY STEAK — This traditional easy Salisbury steak recipe features delicious tender ground meat steaks, swaddled in rich brown gravy for classic comfort food at its finest.

Special Diet Note: Recipe can be made paleo by swapping the breadcrumbs and GF AP flour with tapioca flour.

Prep Ahead: No need to prep ahead — this comes together quickly!

Substitutions: You can use regular Panko breadcrumbs instead of gluten-free breadcrumbs and regular all-purpose flour instead of gluten-free all-purpose flour if you don’t follow a gluten-free diet.


ITALIAN CHICKEN SAUSAGE SKILLET — If you have some Italian chicken sausage on hand and are unsure what to do with it – make this 30-min chicken sausage skillet. You’ll have a delicious, veggie-packed meal on the table quickly and full of flavor without a lot of hassle!

Special Diet Note: Paleo and Whole30 friendly without the cheese.

Prep Ahead: No advance prep needed.

Substitutions: Use any veggies you like there that will steam to crisp tender in about 5 minutes.


ALMOND FLOUR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES — Perfectly crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside, you’d never guess these paleo chocolate chip cookies are grain-free and sweetened with just a touch of pure maple syrup for a healthier cookie recipe.

Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo. For low-carb, make my Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Prep Ahead: You can make the dough several days in advance if you’d like, but there is no need to prepare anything in advance.

Substitutions: Omit the walnuts or replace them with chopped pecans. Use any kind of chocolate chips you like.
