Make a low-carb pizza crust and cook masala-spiced chicken.
This is part of our Meal Plan initiative, where we curate five enticing, nutritious recipes to streamline your weeknight dinners. We provide prep tips, shopping lists that minimize waste, and ideas for leftovers. With sustainability in mind, we're featuring meatless Mondays.
Indian spices make for a vibrant start to the week and provide an array of health benefits. Our lineup features two meals celebrating the bold flavors: Anti-inflammatory turmeric and digestion-boosting cumin and ginger are used in Monday's hearty lentil stew and later in Wednesday's lettuce wraps. In between, on Tuesday, salmon is steamed "en papillote" (in parchment paper packets). You'll use lettuce to create a satisfying wrap again on Thursday, this time with a Japanese influence. Make Friday pizza night, with a low-carb take on classic Margherita.
Lunch plan: You'll have enough leftovers to bring lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.
Buy in bulk: You'll use garlic, ginger, basil, lettuce, and cilantro multiple times this week.
Prep tips: Make a double batch of rice on Monday night to serve with the stew and masala wraps.
