Your Real Food Meal Plan is here for you! A week's worth of healthy, weeknight meals.

Real Food Meal Plans are made up of five quick, easy, healthy recipes that can be made on busy weeknights. They're perfect if you're looking to get quick, healthy dinners on the table or if you're trying to eliminate gluten and dairy from your diet. All the recipes can be made in 30-minutes or less, with 10-ingredients or fewer, in one-pan, or in a slow cooker. Now let's get meal planning!

Slow Cooker Chicken, Veggie & Quinoa Stew

Slow Cooker Chicken, Veggie, and Quinoa Stew (gf, df, ff)

You can't go wrong with this super easy, family-pleasing meal. Use either boneless, skinless, chicken breasts or thighs, depending on your preference. This is really a one-pot meal, but a green salad, crusty bread, or some fruit would make nice accompaniments.

Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup

Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup (v, gf, df, ff)

Breakfast for dinner? Yes, please. These seemingly decadent pancakes can be made in one bowl and will make dinner extra special. Serve with the lightly sweet strawberry sauce, or with any fruit you like. One reader shared she made the sauce with cherries and the end result tasted like Black Forest Cake. Oh yes!

Easy Fish Tacos with Warm Cabbage Slaw

Easy Fish Tacos with Warm Cabbage Slaw (gf, df)

Fish tacos are hands down my favorite way to eat fish, and these will knock your socks off. They're so simple to make, and the warm cabbage slaw really take them over the top. Make a double batch of the slaw and serve the extra on the side.

Weeknight Zucchini Ragout

Weeknight Beef and Zucchini Ragout (gf, df, p)

This is still one of our family's favorite go-to weeknight dinners. The zucchini melts into the sauce, making it super hearty and a painless way to get everyone eating more veggies. Serve over zoodles, whole wheat or gluten-free pasta.

Grilled Chicken Power Salad

Grilled Chicken Power Salad with Homemade Raspberry Dressing (gf, df, p)

I know it's not quite berry season yet, but this chicken salad is just too good to wait for summer. Frozen berries will work for the dressing, so you really only need a pint of fresh raspberries to whip this one up. 

Grapefruit Chia Seed Pudding

Grapefruit Chia Seed Pudding (vg, v, gf, df, p)

Whip up a batch or two of this pudding over the weekend, divide into individual servings, and you'll have breakfast for the entire week!
