Our main ingredients for this week’s batch meal plan are black beans and zucchini since they are in prime season! Plus, they are a healthy food option. This week’s five meals tend to be a little more southwestern in nature though they are not necessarily spicy. Most of the recipes this week serve 4, except the first day which makes enough for 8. Any leftovers can either be brought for lunches or frozen. Since zucchini & black beans are currently in season you should be able to purchase them for cheap. Here is a breakdown of the weekly batch meals:
5 Days of Dinners
- Day 1 – Chicken Tortilla Soup
- Day 2 – Veggie & Shrimp Kabobs
- Day 3 – Black Bean & Veggie Baked Tostadas
- Day 4 – Sweet Potato Turkey Chili
- Day 5 – Crockpot Shredded Chicken Tacos

What is a Batch Meal Plan?
Our batch meal plan is a five day dinner plan with one comprehensive ingredient list and simple directions for prepping all the food so for the reminder of the week you will be able to quickly make the dinners. By having one grocery list you will be able to save money by purchasing in bulk and you can easily see all the ingredients in one list. The one day of batch prep saves a lot of time because you do all the chopping, peeling, and washing on one day rather than before starting every meal. Batch meal planning is a great way to save money and time!
