Colorful Entrées

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: Apr 8 – 12, 2019

We’re easing into April and all the beauty it brings. Incredible pinks and greens and lavenders and yellows are everywhere, catching my eye with every trip I take.

And that means the produce isles too. The colors are gorgeous and even tantalizing. I’m thinking and inventing lots of ways to use these beautiful products of spring.

How about you? What are you seeing and loving this month?

For me, right now, it’s all things with purple hues. I don’t know why! I’m always a pink lover.

But especially in veggies, my eye is drawn to purple. So… as you peruse this week’s weeknight dinner meal plan, you’ll see a LOT of purples with these colorful entrées.

From cabbage soup to a mock fried rice, a coconut curry noodle bowl to a salmon salad and even a quesadilla. The treat this week? Yes — I had to keep that purple too; it’s naturally sweet, healthy, and delicious.

For those purists out there. I know, Tuesday’s dinner doesn’t have purple. But it does have spring green. And that counts too (kind of)!

A week of easy and healthy dinners with colorful entrées. Purple-ish spring-ish recipes and veggies.

It’s what’s for dinner this week!

Vibrant and Healthy Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup | 31Daily.com

With the produce market brightening with all kinds of beautiful colors, I’m in the mood for vibrant veggies. And healthy dinners.

Tuesday: Cauliflower Rice with Steak

Dinner Meal Plan // Week 15: Colorful Entrées

Keeping it low carb today with this delicious “fried rice” kind of dish. Swapping the “rice” for “cauliflower” skips the carbs but not the flavor. “If you want to make this recipe vegetarian, swap sliced mushrooms for the steak. Either way, you don’t have to be on a low-carb diet to love this 30-minute dinner.”

Dinner Meal Plan // Week 15: Colorful Entrées

“What’s better than a recipe that you can 1: whip up in 20 minutes and 2: goes on the top of your weeknight meal list! This Greek Salad with Salmon is exactly that. To start, it’s a traditional Greek salad tossed with the best oregano vinaigrette. That alone is enough to make you feel like you’re sitting beachside in Greece. But add a really easy crispy skinned salmon on top and you’re in business.”
