Eat Well (and Shop Only Once) All Week

Without overstating things, we’d venture that planning (and shopping for) all your weeknight dinners at once can be life-changing. That’s right: life-changing. Stress levels go down, deliciousness goes up, and happiness reigns in the household. That’s why we’ve put together a plan (and your Sunday shopping list) for five dinners—all easy, all delicious—to take you from Monday (Lemony Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs with Carrots) to Friday (Kale and Chorizo Pasta) in one Sunday trip to the store. The trick is the order in which you use your ingredients. Poultry and soft greens, like arugula and chard, have a shorter shelf life, so use them in the beginning of the week. Sturdier root vegetables and cured meats last longer, so they can be Thursday or Friday stars. Eat well, relax, and we (almost totally) promise that you won’t miss greasy takeout.

    There is nothing more comforting than perfectly pan-roasted chicken thighs, onions, and carrots. Plus, the lemons and arugula salad add a bit of peppery citrus flavor that round out this satisfying meal.

    Green Shakshuka

    A play on the traditional shakshuka, this flavorful, bright green dish is going to be your new favorite breakfast for dinner, but we also think it’s pretty enough to impress the Sunday brunch crowd.

    THURSDAY
    Gochujang Roasted Veggie Bowl

    Just when you think you can’t eat another roasted veggie grain bowl, here comes this boldly seasoned Korean-inspired version. We are a little obsessed with gochujang—a slightly sweet and spicy, fermented Korean chili paste—so we decided to toss the usual roasted veggie suspects with it, and it was a hit.

  • FRIDAY <br>Kale and Chorizo Pasta

    Spicy Spanish chorizo and hearty kale are a classic combo. Toss in a little pasta and you’ve got a weeknight dinner dream. It’s easy (hello, one pot!) and super delish.
