Example 5 Day Meal Plan
Monday - Black Bean Soup
Save leftover soup for Thursday dinner. The soup will be the spread for the burritos.
Tuesday - Santa Fe Rice
Save leftover rice for Thursday as filler for the burritos.
Wednesday - Mango Salsa Chicken and Quinoa
Cook four chicken breasts instead of two. Then you can use the leftover chicken for Friday's dinner and save some time in the kitchen.
Thursday - Black Bean and Quinoa Burritos
This burrito is a delicious combination of leftovers and whatever fresh ingredients you want!
Friday - Mango Chicken Salad
Use the extra chicken from Wednesday and make a delicious salad. Use up whatever extra veggies you have. You can even put quinioa or rice on the salad if you want.
