The holidays can be a busy time. This year I wanted to support you with a healthy menu plan for the week of Thanksgiving! Seven days of dinner recipes to help de-stress your life this week!
As an added bonus, I have included Thanksgiving meal preparations to make your holiday cooking run smoother. “Make ahead” options are available each day that will save you time!
Here are my suggested dinner ideas with links to the recipes from November 22 to November 28.
Monday Dinner – November 22
- Broccoli & Mushroom Stir-Fry

Tuesday Dinner – November 23

- Cook an extra 2 cups of wild rice mix for Holiday Butternut Squash Wild Rice Pilaf served on Thanksgiving. I am going to double the pilaf recipe on Thanksgiving, so I will be cooking 3 cups of wild rice mix with 6 cups of broth to make both recipes.
- Roast an extra 1 ½ cups of butternut squash for Holiday Butternut Squash Wild Rice Pilaf. I am doubling the pilaf recipe so will roast 2 butternut squash. This will give me extra cooked squash to use for lunches. I enjoy adding squash to my salads.

Thank you Yvonne! I appreciate your kind comment. My comfort food loving family liked both the pot pie and pumpkin pie crusts. You can omit the herbs in the pot pie crust and use that for a dessert pie too. It’s fun to find tasty GF, DF and egg-free recipes.
Great meal plan, Teresa! I’ll be leaning on your knowledge as I’m starting a more vegan lifestyle. I’ve had several heath issues the last 6 years but the worst is my phantom joint and muscle pain. I could barely move this morning and I have so much work to do. My 5 and 6 year old granddaughters are coming to spend a few days with me while my daughter in law is up in Anchorage having some medical tests done. Thank God they are good little girls who mind well. I’ve got to get stronger/healthier to be able to a good servant to our Lord and to help those who need me. I love your testimony about your health and how you improved it. You inspire me. 🙂

I’m so sorry for your health struggles. Pain is both physically and emotionally exhausting! I will be praying for your health journey and for your time with your granddaughters. ❤️ I think you would enjoy the new Revised and Expanded Medical Medium book. It has helped me so much!!
