Eat Healthy with 15 ingredients meal plan for week

My 15-ingredient meal plan shows how easy it is to eat healthy with just a small amount of planning! I focus on a few key features to maintain balance even with limited ingredients:

High-Quality Protein

Getting enough daily protein will help prevent muscle loss, balance your blood sugar, and maintain a healthy weight. This meal plan will help you reach your protein goals by providing over 20% of your calories from complete protein sources which are highly digestible and provide an adequate amount of amino acids.

Monounsaturated Fats

Good quality fats are associated with a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes. This plan is rich in monounsaturated fat from olive oil and sunflower seed butter, which are beneficial for the immune system and inflammatory responses.


Iron is an important mineral that helps produce red blood cells and transport oxygen throughout the body. Nutritional iron deficiency is common worldwide and can be prevented by including daily iron-rich foods. This meal plan provides iron sources like poultry, ground beef, and spinach.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help your body absorb more iron from iron-rich foods. Goods news, this meal plan pairs iron-rich foods with foods that have vitamin C such as broccoli with beef and sweet potato with chicken.
