7-Day Dinner Menu, Week Two

This post may include affiliate links.

Planning weekly menus can be challenging, which often means we end up eating fast food or frozen dinners instead of healthy, cost-effective meals. So, to make your life a little easier we have put together 7 dinner menus. Be sure to have leftovers for lunch the following day and save even more $.

Keep in mind this menu can be tweaked as needed. The dinner meals have both lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. It’s important to know the difference between complex carbs (good carbs) and simple carbs (not so good carbs). Some foods fall into more than one category. Here are examples of good and bad carbs, lean proteins and healthy fats:

Complex Carbs: whole grains like whole wheat bread, oats, quinoa and whole grain flour, legumes, vegetables fruit, low-fat dairy

Simple Carbs:  candy, cake, ice cream, pastries, sodas (should be eaten as a occasional treat and in moderation). All of our dessert recipes contain unrefined, natural sweeteners and never refined or artificial sweeteners.

Lean Protein: Lean cuts of meat, low-fat Greek yogurt, legumes

Healthy Fats:  Olive oil, coconut oil, seeds, nuts, cold water fish.

** Be sure to follow the suggested serving sizes.
