Are you in a home cooking rut? Perhaps feeling lethargic and off-kilter after a summer of (well-deserved!) indulgence? Maybe just looking for a more fun way to meal prep?
Planning for a week of good-for-you meals doesn’t have to feel like a chore, which is exactly why we created the Healthy Reset Meal Plan. When summer winds down and you dive head first back into your busy routine, this meal plan is here to ground you with five nutrient-dense lunches and dinners using healthy, affordable groceries from Thrive Market.
This isn’t your typical repetitive, rigid meal plan — ours is full of variety, with easy-prep instructions for Sunday afternoon that will give you a fridge full of base ingredients to use throughout the week. It’s not a diet, but it is a great way to get back to healthy home cooking in a way that’s convenient, inspiring, and waste-free, thanks to components you can make once and then mix and match throughout each recipe.
We worked with recipe developer, photographer, and food stylist extraordinaire Aubrey Devin to create a menu of meals that reuse ingredients and components in multiple, creative ways, ensuring you never get bored and nothing goes to waste. We’ll post the shopping list, prep instructions, and five Healthy Reset recipes at the beginning of the week so you’ll have everything you need.
Ready for your Healthy Reset? Here’s what you’ll need to do:
