7 days of meal ideas that are low-fat and budget friendly. This week’s meal plan is courtesy of one of our lovely community members, and has some delicious and healthy options.

I find it really inspiring hearing what’s for dinner in other homes, and I love reading my community’s meal plans. Which is why I try to share one of your meal plans every few weeks (if you’d like to share yours, please comment with it below). This week’s family meal plan comes courtesy of Tiffany, and it looks delicious, I love that she has aimed for all low-fat and budget friendly meals. I’m intrigued by the lentil salad with poached eggs recipe – I might not have thought of trying a meal like that, but I’m keen to give it a go and see if the family likes it.

Vegetarian Taco Bowl – Tacos are so yummy but can be messy sometimes, a taco bowl gives you all the yummy elements and skips the mess factor. Add some corn chips to the side if you still want some crunch with this meal.

Low Fat Creamy Chicken Pasta – a pasta recipe that is healthy but still has all the deliciousness of a creamy dish. This one sounds easy to make and reduces dishes as it only uses one pot!

Prawn and Mango Salad – A prawn and mango is a perfect summer meal; light, fresh and delicious. Tiffany is also serving a side of homemade chips with it, to make the meal more filling.

Tuna Patties – My recipe for this meal can be made with canned tuna or salmon, then served with a delicious salad or steamed vegetables. I always nearly have the ingredients for the patties in my pantry, so it’s a great option for the night before a grocery shop.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes – Roast sweet potatoes are so very yummy. I think stuffing them and making it into a whole meal is a great idea. This recipe for Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes with quinoa is healthy and would be extremely flavoursome.

Steaks with Roast Beetroot and Pumpkin Salad – This meal sounds delicious. Tiffany is making Maggie Beer’s Salad of Beetroot, Blood Orange and Pumpkin to serve with steaks. That salad recipe is available in the cookbook Maggie’s Kitchen or you could try the salad recipe below.

Warm lentil salad with poached egg – warm and hearty isn’t normally how you would describe a salad but this one with lentils, stir-fried vegetables, bacon with a pesto dressing and poached eggs sure sounds it!
