Healthy Meal Plan #46

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 BEEF BURRITO BOWLSMy goal with this recipe? The best tasting burrito bowl with the least amount of effort. I paired this recipe down to the basics, using a few ingredients in a smart way to get these tasty burrito bowls on the table in about 45 minutes!

Special Diet Note: Recipe is gluten free as-is. Can easily be made paleo and low-carb friendly.

Prep Ahead: Cooking the rice ahead of time (if using) will save you some time as well as using store bought salsa/pico de gallo and guacamole.

Substitutions: Use all meat if you don’t eat beans. Or use all beans if you don’t eat meat! Swap out the rice for salad greens or cauliflower rice if you’re avoiding grains or use another type of grain like quinoa.


ONE POT MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN AND RICE — You’ll love this recipe featuring delicious sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, and more!

Special Diet Note: This chicken and rice recipe is gluten-free.

Prep Ahead: There is no need to do any advance prep, as much of the steps involve dumping ingredients in the pot.

Substitutions: Swap out the bone-in chicken thighs for chicken breasts or boneless thighs if you’d prefer.


SPRING MIX SALAD WITH RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE — You just need a handful of easy to find ingredients and some raspberry-lime vinaigrette (that’s easy too!) You can have the whole thing done in 20 minutes!

Special Diet Note: Recipe is gluten free as-is.

Prep Ahead: The dressing can be made 1-2 days in advance but has the best flavor if eaten fresh.

Substitutions: This may be suitable for a light dinner, but feel free to add some grilled chicken or shrimp if you want to boost the protein.


EASY THAI INSPIRED STEAK CURRY — This easy Steak Curry recipe features tender beef in a luscious coconut curry sauce and plenty of fresh vegetables for a Thai-inspired main dish.

Special Diet Note: This curry recipe is gluten-free, paleo, and keto. Keep it paleo and keto by serving it with cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.

Prep Ahead:This simple Thai curry recipe is relatively quick to prepare and no advance prep is needed.

Substitutions: Swap out the veggies for any of your favorites. Use green or yellow curry paste instead of red.


ROASTED RED PEPPER AND TOMATO SOUP — Using just a few pantry staples, you can have this deliciously simple red pepper tomato soup on the table in under 30 minutes without a tomato run!

Special Diet Note: Recipe is gluten free and easily made dairy free/paleo friendly.

Prep Ahead: No need to prep ahead! The soup can be made ahead of time and reheated easily, though.

Substitutions: If you have some leftover taco meat from Monday, it would be a good boost of protein for this soup. You can also stir in some pesto or a spicy condiment.


BAKED KOREAN BBQ CHICKEN THIGHS — This soy-free baked version of Korean BBQ Chicken is a delicious main dish for easy weeknight meals. Ideal for meal prep, this easy chicken recipe is huge on flavor but requires minimal effort.
