We’re back home after a 10-day road trip to see my dad, and it feels good to get back to planning our healthy family dinners.
Here’s what’s for dinners this week:
Sweet Potato Apple Avocado Salad from Simply Real Health. I made this salad last week and have leftover dressing so I’ll be making it again. I love the flavors of this salad, they’re all so good together. I’ll add beets to it too, because we love beets in our house. (This recipe is also in her cookbook, Simply Real Eating, which is full of delicious recipes and healthy living tips.)
Shrimp Cauliflower Fried Rice with pineapple. This is one of my favorite quick dinners that takes 15 minutes to make and is so delicious. The recipe is in my download of 7 quick and healthy dinners. Plug in your name and email at the bottom of the post and you’ll get it in your inbox. 🙂 I’ll add shrimp and diced pineapple to the recipe.
Smoked Chicken Breasts from Our Zesty Life with roasted veggies. We have a smoker bbq en route so we’re planning to try a lot of smoker recipes: pizza, chicken, fish, veggies. We’re excited to perfect cooking on it.
Grilled Salmon & Veggies & Avocado Salsa. We have a lot of zucchini and yellow squash from our garden, so we’ll grill up some of that, along with sweet potatoes. Such a simple and delicious summer dinner. I loosely follow this recipe from Tone It Up, and add avocado, tomatoes and corn to the salsa. It’s so good!
Cilantro Black Bean Burrito Bowls. We eat a lot of burrito bowls because they’re such easy dinners. I heat up drained black beans with a little garlic powder, oregano and avocado oil. Also cook up some quinoa and then mix in a bunch of chopped cilantro, salt, pepper and juice of 1/2 or 1 lime. Put as much as each as you like into a bowl, top with your favorite lettuce, salsa, guac or avocado, maybe a sprinkle of cheese and more lime juice. This is also really delicious fajita-style with grilled bell peppers and onions.
I hope you find these weekly healthy family dinner meal plans helpful for healthy summer dinners for your family. 🙂 You can check out past weekly dinner plans HERE. (I typically plan for 5 dinners a week, with room for leftovers, takeout, other plans, etc.)
Also, I’ve been thinking about including a grocery list with these posts so you can either print of check off as you shop. Would that be helpful? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂
