Looking for calorie specific meal plans or new recipes, check out the 7 day meal plan I created using Eat This Much Planner. The aim for each day was 1600 calories, each meal is not more than 100 calories over or under 1600 calories. The meal plans offer delicious recipes that are fairly easy to make and a variety of food so you don’t get bored eating the same thing. Feel free to use it as-is, or import it into your ETM account to get a grocery list, edit the meals, and track your intake.

Recipe directions

Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Feta

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Wilt spinach down in a small skillet over low heat with ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Season to taste.

2. Beat the eggs and add to the skillet with the spinach. Stir slowly over medium-low heat until they reach your desired doneness. Sprinkle in the feta cheese and stir to combine and soften the cheese.

Tuna Stuffed Tomato

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Cut a large tomato in half. With a sharp knife or spoon, carefully remove some of the inside of the tomato to create a bowl.

2. Drain tuna and combine with chopped onions, cottage cheese, dill, and salt & pepper to taste. Stuff into tomato halves and enjoy!

Brown Butter and Butternut Squash Gnocchi

Directions are for original recipe of 16 serving

1. Prepare the ingredients: Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Halve the squash lengthwise; scoop out and discard the seeds and pulp. Using a sharp, sturdy knife, peel the squash; discard the peel. Small dice the squash. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; discard the stems and thinly slice the leaves. Crumble the ricotta salata cheese.

2. Cook the squash: In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash and cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until tender. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Wipe down the pan.

3. Brown the Butter: Add the butter to the same pan used to cook the squash. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 15 to 30 seconds, until the butter foams. As the foam subsides, continue cooking, stirring occasionally and swirling the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, or until deep golden brown and nuttily fragrant. (Be careful not to overcook, as the butter can burn easily.)

4. Cook the gnocchi: While the butter browns, add the gnocchi to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Reserving ½ cup of the gnocchi cooking water, drain thoroughly and transfer to the pan of browned butter.

5. Finish the gnocchi: To the pan of gnocchi and browned butter, add the cooked squash, sage, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, cinnamon, and half the reserved gnocchi cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining gnocchi cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish.

Vegetable 3 Egg Scramble

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Melt the butter.

2. Mostly cook the vegetables.

3. Add the beaten eggs and then salt to the pan. Allow to cook until desired doneness.

4. Serve with tomato sauce.

5. Enjoy!

Carrots

Directions are for original recipe of 1 cup

1. Enjoy by themselves. Optionally, enjoy with a side of hummus (there are other carrot + dip recipes on ETM you can swap in).

Cheesy Chicken and Spinach

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Cook chicken in a saucepan, season as desired. (If stuffing, slice open center prior to cooking.)

2. Cut up tomatoes and spinach in to bite sized pieces.

3. Sauté vegetables in pan, season with garlic and salt as desired.

4. Shred or grate preferred cheese, like mozzarella, and add to pan.

5. When chicken is done cooking remove it from heat. You can either smother the chicken or stuff it with the vegetables mix.

Spinach Recipe

Directions are for original recipe of 4 serving

1. Cut off the thick stems of the spinach and discard. Clean the spinach by filling up your sink with water and soaking the spinach to loosen any sand or dirt. Drain the spinach and then repeat soaking and draining. Put the spinach in a salad spinner to remove any excess moisture.

2. Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saut for about 1 minute or until the garlic is just beginning to brown and become fragrant.

3. Add the spinach to the pan, packing it down a bit if you need to with your hand. Use a couple spatulas to lift the spinach and turn it over in the pan so that you coat more of it with the olive oil and garlic. Do this a couple of times. Cover the pan and cook for 1 minute. Uncover and turn the spinach over again. Cover the pan and cook for an additional minute.

4. After 2 minutes of covered cooking the spinach should be completely wilted. Remove from heat. Drain any excess moisture from the pan. Add a little more olive oil, sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve immediately.

Baked Spinach and Eggs

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease with butter an individual ramekin or other small oven safe dish that can accommodate the eggs and spinach.

2. Place the spinach in a deep skillet or a large frying pan. Add a little water (2-3 Tablespoons). Using medium heat, cook the spinach just until wilted, roughly 3-4 minutes. Use either your hand or a spatula to pack in the spinach. Drain the excess water well.

3. Distribute the spinach evenly among the prepared ramekins or oven-safe dishes. Crack 1-2 eggs on top of the spinach. Season lightly with salt and pepper - lightly because Feta cheese is pretty salty on its own. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese on top.

4. Place the baking dishes or ramekins on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the eggs are set/cooked (whites are set and yolks look firm on the edges) to your liking. Enjoy!

Keto protein shake

Directions are for original recipe of 1 shake

1. Stir the whey into the water and drink. Ideally use flavored whey, but if you only have unflavored, add in a tiny bit of sweetener and cocoa powder to make it more palatable (both have a negligible amount of carbs).

6. Spoon tomatoes over chicken and serve.

7. Serve on top of pasta or rice for complete meal.

5. Season with salt and pepper then serve!

Healthy Caesar Salad

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Spinach already comes in individual leaves, so you don't have to worry about ripping it apart in the morning when you're pressed for time.

2. Cook some chicken over the weekend and freeze it to increase the simplicity of preparing a lunchtime salad. To cook, first pound out chicken breast a bit to the same thickness by carefully using a kitchen mallet or the back of a heavy jar. Cook in a nonstick pan over medium heat with about a tsp of olive oil, about 4 minutes per side or until cooked through completely without any pink in the middle.

3. Add chicken to the spinach before going to work.
