Week of Healthy Meal Prep: April 15-19
Monday: Easy Sesame-Hoisin Salmon
This just might become one of your go-to weeknight mains. It’s incredibly easy to make, near foolproof, and a guaranteed family pleaser. It works especially well with sustainable farmed salmon, which is oilier than wild salmon. The sweet-nutty-salty sauce is a perfect match for the rich fish and tames any sort of fishy flavors the salmon might have. Be sure to top the fillets with any remaining sauce in the baking dish—you don’t want any of that goodness to go to waste. Serve with our Miso-Glazed Radishes for an easy, well-rounded meal.
Tuesday: Rotisserie Chicken and Asparagus and Peas With Warm Tarragon Vinaigrette
Fresh spring produce needs little embellishment, although a quick toss with bacon never hurts. Pick up a store-bought rotisserie chicken to round ou this quick weeknight meal.
Wednesday: Rigatoni With Kale Pesto
Whole-wheat pasta would be a tasty option here, complementing the earthy flavor of kale.
Thursday: Pork Chops With Herbed Goat Cheese Butter and Green Beans
Fresh thyme and lemon juice brighten this easy weeknight dinner. Kid-friendly and super quick, this can be your new go-to pork dinner. Clocking in at only $10.79 per serving, this dinner keeps in mind both your health and your wallet. You'll most likely have leftover goat cheese, but lucky for you, there are plenty of healthy, delicious ways that you can make use of what you didn't get to.
Friday: Cod With Herbed Pea Relish
Here's a quick and easy dish: Top simply seasoned cod fillets with a fresh spring relish of peas, shallots, capers, lime juice, oregano, and red pepper. The result? A healthy dinner you've made in just minutes. Serve with a side of our Herbed Roasted New Potatoes, if you like.
Treat Yourself: Mini Carrot Cake Cupcakes
These not-too-sweet mini cupcakes give you all of the flavor of a classic carrot cake, plus a hint of tang in the cream cheese frosting. These cute bite-sized treats would be a great addition to any spring celebration, or for a tea party. You can make the cupcakes up to 1 day in advance unfrosted in airtight container on the counter. Make the frosting when you’re ready to serve.
