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 easy recipes, made with real food ingredients that can be made on busy weeknights. All the recipes are (or can easily be adapted to be) gluten-free and dairy-free. There's always a slow cooker recipe to kick off the week, and some vegetarian and paleo options as well.
If you're doing the barre3 Challenge, trying to eliminate gluten and/or dairy from your diet, or just looking to get quick, healthy dinners on the table, these meal plans will work for you. Just remember to follow the Portion Prescription, and fill at least half your plate with veggies!

Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken (gf, df, p, ff)
This pulled chicken is a total family-pleaser, and requires minimal prep: just dump everything in and hit start. It's great piled high on a whole wheat bun, in brown rice bowls, or over greens. Sometimes I make a double batch of slaw so I can do a bowl with slaw and plenty of chicken.
20-Minute Turkey Tacos (gf, df)
The turkey and apple salsa combo in these tacos is so fresh and tasty you'll think they came from your favorite restaurant. They're so simple, anyone can make them on a busy weeknight--no special cooking skills or tools required!
Roasted Citrus Salmon Noodle Bowls (gf, df)
Even if you're not a fish lover, I think you'll love these salmon bowls. You can use soba noodles if you like, or substitute gluten-free or whole wheat pasta. Wild salmon is a great choice here, but if you can't find it any time of firm fish, such as cod or tilapia, will work just fine.
20-Minute Reset Turkey Chili (gf, df, ff)
This weeknight hero makes our family's meal plan on a very regular basis. It's super fast, can be made in one pan, and with 10 ingredients. Super family-friendly and adaptable, just add any toppings you like to make it your own!
These quick noodles are just as good as take out, but without all the junk. Use any green veggies you like and can find, and feel free to add additional protein. Simply grilled chicken, shrimp, or defrosted edamame are all great options.
