A 7 day family meal plan that has a wide variety of dinner ideas for the week. Find recipes for gnocchi, fish burgers, chicken rainbow salad, a Sunday roast and more!

This week’s meal plan is full of healthy and delicious family meal ideas that are fairly quick to prepare and cook.  On busy weeks I love meals that can be thrown into the slow cooker in the morning or quickly prepped and cooked at night, whilst making sure they are still nutritious and healthy options. I hope you find some some ideas for your family dinners this week below.

Beef Ragu Gnocchi – this meal is absolutely delicious and a firm favourite in our house. Fussy eaters won’t even notice the carrot and celery in it. Mop up the delicious remnants with a nice garlic bread.

Fish Burgers and Chips – this dinner is bound to be a hit with the family with the flavour combination of the fish, crunchy slaw and chili mayonnaise. If you’re pressed for time, use pre-crumbed fish pieces and a ready made tartare sauce.

Mexican Salsa Chicken Wraps – I love my slow cooker Mexican Chicken recipe for how versatile it is. We are having it on wraps with guacamole this week, but you could have it on top of rice with a fresh Mexican style salad, or maybe in oven baked enchiladas. Check out the recipe for five different meal ideas.
