Now we’ve finished your meal plan for week 50. December is blowing by so quickly and we hope you are all keeping well and in good Christmas spirit! In these busy X-mas times it is important to eat well, so following a meal plan is a great tool. That way the week’s five dinners are already planned, which removes a stress factor (and benefits your wallet). We personally love using practical methods like this to make our weekdays more simple.
We strongly recommend meal planning. It’s a great way to not only make your weekday cooking and grocery shopping easier, but also save time and money! You’ll find yourself making way fewer impulse purchases and depending on the ingredients required in the recipes, sometimes you can opt for the larger packs which tend to be cheaper per lb.
As always the recipes and grocery shopping list is intended for 2 persons but the ingredients can easily be added up if you cook for more people.
KUMA Meal Plan Week 50
Monday: Asian Pork with Chili Sauce
Tuesday: Indian Daal with Creme Fraiche
Wednesday: World’s Best Fried Rice with Chicken
Thursday: Oven Salmon and Spinach with Pasta
Friday: Indian Chicken Korma with Rice
This week’s meal plan begins with a trip in the Asian kitchen. Monday we are making an Asian pork dish with rice and chili sauce. This meal is SO yummy! We recommend that you cook extra rice based on Wednesday’s recipe so you can put those extra rice aside in the fridge. Tuesday we have a vegetarian day lined up, but fear not my fellow meat lovers - this recipe is SO flavor packed that you really won’t miss the meat. We are talking about the Indian classic daal, and it is one of our personal favorite vegan recipes. I swear your kitchen will smell like paradise when you start cooking with all the lovely spices we use.
Wednesday we make fried rice with chicken. Easy and super tasty - and to make it even easier AND tastier, we recommend that you use some of the extra rice you cooked Monday, because fried rice is ALWAYS best with rice that have had a chance to cool in the fridge (it’s one of the secret tricks!).
Thursday we make a juicy salmon with spinach in the oven and serve with a side of pasta. We finish off Friday with another Indian hit, the beloved Chicken Korma. All in all a dee-licious, easy, and flavor packed week that’s good for your health, your soul, and your wallet. Let’s rock!
Grocery list for Week 50 KUMA Meal Plan
Here you’ll find the detailed grocery list for week 50. As always we offer a highly detailed list with ingredients measured down to the gram. This is to help you utilize any opened ingredients you may already have. Remember to take a look in your kitchen cabinets, fridge, and freezer to check if you have any of the ingredients already. No need to buy a new cucumber if you already have a half in the fridge and that’s al you need. Also, do remember that the KUMA Meal Plan is intended for 2 people.
