Weekly Meal Plan For A Busy Holiday Season

The holiday season can inherently be a stressful time of year for so many people, especially when it comes to food. There are so many distractions, work parties, family parties, friend parties, that half of the time I feel as though our healthy planned meals go out the window when something comes up, or the day just goes by too fast. 

However, since I am absolutely one of those people who needs to structure out my meals if I am not going to spend a bazillion dollars at Whole Foods that week, I have been working really hard this December to do as much meal planning/prep work as I can on Sunday's so that as the week gets busy I know that I have delicious balanced meals already waiting for me at home. 

This week looks to be just as busy as ever, so I knew that I wanted to focus more on quick and easy recipes that could be cooked for the most part ahead of time, and don't require as much day of prep-work as some of more typical weekly meals. Since around the holiday's I find myself indulging a little more than usual (and that is 100% okay!) I tend to crave more nourishing and lighter dinners to balance out the extra cookie, or glass of wine I may be having.
