Here’s How to Set Up for the Week

Print out the grocery list here. It contains everything you need to make one of each of the recipes in this section. If you’re a bigger family or want to make extras, you may want to double or triple some of these recipes. Feel free to get ingredients for any sides you may want to have such as salad greens or roasted vegetables, plus some fresh fruit, yogurt and smoothie ingredients to mix up your breakfasts.

On Sunday, follow “Your 10-Point Sunday Game Plan” below to get set up for the week. Some of the recipes are made entirely on Sunday: Coconut Chicken & Lentil Curry, Zucchini Artichoke Bites and the Fruity Yogurt Bark. All the other recipes are mostly prepped in advance then simply assembled and/or heated right before eating.

All you have to do is a little Sunday prep for a week of healthy eating on easy street.
