Meal Planning Weekly low-carb Dinners

I'm going to try and share some of our weekly dinners on a more consistent basis. I've really started to get in the groove of consistently cooking 4/5 nights a week and I like to try and keep adding new recipes to rotation. I try to keep our weekly dinners as low-carb as possible because I just feel better without too much white stuff in my diet.

Every week I spend about an hour going through Pintrest and pulling our menu together. I try and do only one grocery trip a week, so normally our Trader Joe's bill is about $150. I tend to cook dinners for 4 people so that we always have leftovers for lunch the next day.

We have a chalkboard menu in our kitchen which I stick pretty closely too.  Last week we had....

This makes an appearance almost every Monday. It makes a ton, holds up well for lunches, and is so damn good.
Since the kale salad calls for quinoa, I made the whole package on Monday and saved half for this bake.
  I recently started buying pre-diced onions which is a major time saver


This recipe is from my girl April, and it's one of my favorites! Since creamy blue cheese dressing can be really high in calories & fat, I take blue cheese crumbles and add them to plain Greek Yogurt and add salt and pepper. You cannot taste the difference!

I'm hoping I'll be able to remember to take pictures of our dinners this week but if you have any easy, low carb ideas - I'd love to hear your favorites!


  1. We LOVE those buffalo meatballs from April, too! So good and a reminder that I should definitely make them next week.

  2. My fiance is not a big quinoa fan but I love it! I'm thinking the enchilada might be a sneaky method of getting it in for dinner!

  3. can we talk more about the kale ceasar? how do you make it??

  4. You are making me want to cook! These all look delish!

  5. Yum!! I might just copy this whole menu next week! :)

  6. (Baby) kale Caesar salads are on our menu almost weekly, too. I love the different options you have (and appreciate your love of Mexican night hah).

  7. Yum these all sound so delicious! I need to add these to my weekly menu

  8. Okay you are a genius for the "mock" blue cheese dressing. So smart! Aren't those meatballs yummy?!
