Here is Healthy Meal Plan March 11 so you can get yourself organized for the coming week! I find it’s so much easier to make it through the week without feeling crazed if I have my meals planned out with easy weeknight dinners.
Healthy Meal Plan March 11 – 15
Today is daylight savings time! Wow – I feel like the last 6 months sped past. Daylight savings always seems so bittersweet. It’s so great that it’s going to be light out longer during the day, but I really hate losing an hour today. Especially since it’s my daughter’s birthday – she gets 1 hour less!
We have a week of yummy yet easy and healthy recipes planned, which is good for me since this weekend I was so busy with my daughter’s birthday and dealing with a sick child. Talk about being torn in two directions! So this week is all about easy. Simple. No stress.
Meal plans are an easy way to reach your health and lifestyle goals.
There’s also an organized grocery list below that will make shopping so much easier and much less stressful knowing what to buy when you are in the store. This meal planning will save you money and time and you will waste less food and be ready each day for that neverending question – “Mom – what’s for dinner?”

Healthy Meal Plan March 11 – 15
- Monday – Slow Cooker Vegetarian Red Lentil Chili
Don’t let the name fool you – the red lentils end up being creamy and tasteless. The dinner is complete with some tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream. So yummy! Perfect for Mondays.
- Tuesday – Crockpot Drumsticks
This one is beyond easy and my picky 11 year old loves them. Just put the drumsticks in the crockpot, smother with barbeque sauce, and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
- Wednesday – Sweet and Sour Cocktail Meatballs and Macaroni and Cheese
I like to mix up the meatballs very basic with bread crumbs and egg and bake them in the oven while preparing the macaroni!
- Thursday – Orzo with Shrimp and Feta
This is an easy way to get more fish in your diet!
- Friday – Vegetarian Tortilla Casserole
I absolutely love this dish – perfect for Friday evenings! Easy and quick and you’ll feel so much better eating this than pizza.
