Weekly Dinner Meal Plan // Week 38: 300 Calorie Entrees

300 Calorie Entrees

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: September 17 – 21

A 5 night, Weekly Dinner Meal Plan that’s easy, seasonal, and healthy. Plus, a weekly treat you won’t want to miss.

With the fall leaves beginning to emerge and the days becoming shorter, making time for exercise has been a priority for me. One which takes a bit more planning.

Yet still, when I can get out before dark, some long walks in the cooler air with some early fluttering leaves have been such a highlight!

As far as meal planning goes, we’ve been concentrating on quick cooking, 15 and 20 minutes dinners, for the past several weeks.

This week, I’m challenging myself to schedule and make entrees that are all around 300 calories.

And there are some yummy ones on tap.

It’s what for dinner this week!

Be sure to print your dinner planner at the bottom of this post.

Have a great week!

Season 2 (4-ounce) tilapia fillets with salt and pepper. Pile a bunch of halved cherry tomatoes on top and dollop fillets with a big spoonful of pesto. Fold the parchment paper to create a snug packet and bake at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Finish with more pesto to serve.
