Weekly meal plan: Southwest Quinoa Bake at The Real Food Dietitians

I got an email from our advertising director, Lisa, declaring this Southwest Quinoa Bake recipe from The Real Food Dietitians one of her family’s must-have dinners each week. And that’s saying something considering she has three hungry teens! With quinoa as the base, it’s hearty and filling without empty calories. Bonus: it’s easy to make it meatless if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, just by leaving out the chicken. Or, switch it to any other protein you love.

Weekly meal plan: Bacon, Egg and Avocado Sandwiches at Skinny Taste

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? Still, that doesn’t mean pancakes and waffles are your only choices. We love these Bacon, Egg, and Avocado Breakfast Sandwiches from Skinny Taste so much. I’d happily pile on all these toppings, but pickier eaters can DIY any way they’d like. Just don’t skip the avocado!

Weekly meal plan: Rosemary Garlic Roasted Chicken at Munchkin Time

Need a really, really easy dinner in your meal planning rotation this week? Try this Potato Garlic & Herb Roasted Chicken from Munchkin Time. It’s one-pot simple, but is still impressive enough to cook when you’re having guests over. So go ahead, call your mother-in-law or your kid’s new coach and invite them to dinner. Or…don’t.

Weekly meal plan: Thai Style Baby Back Ribs at What's Gaby Cooking?

Up your ribs game with this delicious Thai Style Baby Back Ribs from What’s Gaby Cooking? It’s got that fresh, California-style flavor that we love about Gaby’s recipes, without being too much work for a weeknight. That said, these do need to bake for two hours, so make sure you get them started early in the day. With the kids back in school, we’re sure you’ve got plenty to do to fill that time!

Weekly meal plan: Rosemary Brown Sugar Pork Chops at Family Style Food

Yummmm, these Rosemary Brown Sugar Pork Chops at Family Style Food look so delicious. And easy! Just a 15-minute brine, then they’re ready to cook. Friday night done right.
