Forget those last-minute trips to the grocery store after work—with this week's dinners already planned out, you can start the week with a big shop and get everything you need to make seven healthy and undoubtedly delicious meals. Not only will this meal plan help you save precious time in the evenings, it will keep your grocery bill in check by re-using ingredients in creative ways.
Day 1: Chive & Goat Cheese Souffles
This light, airy individual cheese soufflé recipe is dramatically puffed when it comes out of the oven. Pair with a spring salad of watercress, baby arugula and tender greens tossed with lemon-chive vinaigrette.
Thai curry paste delivers a spicy kick-in-the-pants in this healthy peanut noodle recipe. If you haven't tried kohlrabi yet, here's your excuse to buy it. The bulbous vegetable is related to broccoli and Brussels sprouts, but has a milder, sweet flavor and fabulous crunch.
For a healthy variation on creamy chicken salad, we've replaced half the mayonnaise with basil pesto. Serve over greens and with Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Rolls.
A mix of roasted cabbage and red onion is topped with melted cheese for a divine side to steak in this quick and healthy dinner recipe. Serve with a mixed green salad and toasted and lightly buttered bread.
Cooking the potatoes and kale in a foil packet in this healthy recipe gives you moist and tender results while using less oil. Choose a barbecue sauce that has the least amount of sodium and added sugars.
The brightness of basil pesto is a nice match for the buttery flavor of salmon in this quick and healthy dinner recipe. Refrigerated pesto, found near fresh sauces and salsas at most stores, is prettier and has a better taste than jarred.
Pea Shoot & Snap Pea Salad with Sunflower Seeds topped with cooked chicken breast
Grassy, sweet pea shoots add another layer of pea flavor to this light spring salad recipe. Look for them near other sprouts or at Asian markets and farmers' markets.
