Meal Plan #21: A DIY Meal Kit Meal Plan

On Episode #21 of my podcast, TMI with Christine, I talk with Melissa Lanz, founder of The Fresh 20, about delegating household tasks and about how her company can help with that too. The meal plan for this week is inspired by our conversation and is a DIY meal kit that your whole family will love.

Images of cooked dinners arranged into a collage shaped like a heart with the words Meal Plan Week #21 Love from TMI with Christine on it.


To hear all of the info about this meal plan, listen to the TMI with Christine: E21 – How To Delegate Household Tasks on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Here is this week’s meal plan:

Day #1: Shrimp and Gnocchi Sheet Pan Dinner

Day #2: Avocado Chicken Salad Pitas

Avocado Chicken Salad Recipe (Note: To reduce the number of ingredients you need to buy, skip the celery).

For the chicken, use boneless skinless chicken breasts poached like this.

Serve the chicken salad in pita pockets. To the pita pockets, also add lettuce and halved cherry tomatoes.

Day #3: Shrimp Taco Salad

For this dinner, I’m using this Kale Taco Salad recipe as an inspiration but follow the instructions and use the ingredients below:

Cook the shrimp like this.

Chill them as shown. Peel them if they weren’t peeled. Season with salt and garlic powder.

Then, make a dressing by pureeing 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 avocado, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Season with salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste.

Arrange lettuce on dinner plates. Top with halved cherry tomatoes, sliced bell peppers, chopped avocado, kalamata olives, sliced green onion, and tortilla chips. Drizzle with the dressing.

Day #4: Greek Lemon Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner with Pitas and Homemade Tzatziki

Warm the pitas in the oven for a few minutes, straight on the rack.

Homemade Tzatziki Recipe (Make twice as much as your household needs to use on Day #5)

Day #5: Salmon Rice Bowls

Salmon Rice Bowl Recipe

But, instead of the toppings listed there, use cooked asparagus (roast it in the oven for 5 minutes like in this recipe), cucumber, cherry tomatoes, lemon, capers, fresh parsley, and any tzatziki leftover from Day #4.

Note that instead of cooking fresh salmon as instructed in the recipe, you can instead use either canned salmon or smoked salmon.
