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. Because diet culture tells us that the holiday's is the time of year that  is one of the most difficult months to stick to weekly meal planning. 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. And especially if I am going to live off of more than holiday appetizers and smoothie bowls, 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 and holiday sweets become more taunting, 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.
