The Picky Eater Meal Plan (Week 8)

meal plan week 8

The past two weeks have been kind of crazy in our house! I was traveling for almost an entire week, and then the husband was traveling for almost an entire week. So basically, not much cooking got done. The night before I left for my trip, I made my Veggie Lasagna – which Layla and the husband ate for 4 days 🙂

And the day I got back from my trip, I made this Tuscan Chickpea Soup – and I added an entire box of baby spinach to it – which Layla and I ate for another 4 days. Outside of those two home cooked meals, we did a lot of Whole Foods Salad Bar takeout and frozen leftovers: since most of my recipes are freezer friendly, I freeze half of a lot of the recipes I make for instances like this!

But as of today we are all back in town and back on track.

If you’re looking for quick and easy meals you can make in under 30 minutes, check out my Last Minute Dinner Ideas!

Here’s what I’m cooking this week:

Monday: Spicy Tomato, White Bean and Vegetable Stew

Tuesday: Mushroom Toast –> I like making these on sprouted wheat bread to amp up the fiber and protein!

Wednesday: Leftover Soup!

Thursday: Naan Bread Pizza –> You can make this on naan for a more indulgent meal, or on a sprouted wheat tortilla for a healthier meal!

Friday: Healthy takeout! We usually like to order from a mediterranean place near our house that has amazing salads and soups (and we get a few falafel balls to crumble on top of our salad).

Saturday: Greek Nachos with Baked Chickpeas

Sunday: Leftovers!

  1. Love this meal plan. Question for you – in case we are out with the family at a restaurant.. what can we order so we don’t overeat?

    • Hi Mittal! Honestly for a restaurant it really depends on what restaurant you’re going to for me to give you good advice about what to order. Feel free to email me at with some of the restaurants you like to go to often and I can give you more guidance then!

  2. They are good ideas for my next week meal plans. To think about what my family will have everyday make me get a headache, haha.

    • Haha! Thanks Vivian – I’m sure you and your family will love these recipes, and they are really easy to make too! 🙂

  3. I have been following all your meal plans for a very long time and they are doing wonders to my health. Much thanks for sharing such great meal plans!
