Weekly meal plan: Quinoa fried rice at Minimalist Baker

This Quinoa Fried Rice at Minimalist Baker is a hearty dinner for #MeatlessMonday, and you can substitute in any veggies you like. Of course, you could also add some chicken or beef if you want! If you haven’t tried quinoa with the kids before, it’s a great way to get more protein and fewer calories out of your carbs.

Weekly meal plan: Chicken Stroganoff at 30 Minute Meals

Beef stroganoff has always been a favorite around our house, but since we’re cutting way back on beef at home for the kids I’m up for trying this Ultimate Chicken Stroganoff at Meals in 30 Minutes. And yeah, the fact that it’s ready in just 30 minutes is a big bonus. Vegetarians could try it with tofu instead of chicken.

Weekly meal plan: Mediterranean Bowls at Sunny Thymes

I’m a big fan of Buddha Bowls for family dinner, because everyone can DIY theirs the way they like. These Mediterranean Buddha Bowls at Sunny Thymes are packed with flavor and healthy ingredients that will keep us full until bedtime.

Weekly meal plan: Butternut Squash lasagna at Kristine's Kitchen

Mmm, we made butternut squash ravioli for Thanksgiving and everyone loved the savory, sweet filling. This Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna at Kristine’s Kitchen seems like a more casual way to serve it — and you could always add some pulled rotisserie chicken to it if you want a little extra protein.

Weekly meal plan: French Dip Sandwiches at I Heart Naptime

Any recipe from the I Heart Naptime Cookbook by Jamielyn Nye has been quickly gobbled up at our house, and this new Easy French Dip sandwich at her blog looks like a perfect Friday night dinner to me — quick, easy, and casual. Yum.
