Spring 28 Day Plan - Week 1, First Half

The Spring 28 day plan kicks off with healthy, satifsying meals that are bright and refreshing for this time of year. Each week of the plan is intended to provide meals for two people and includes the following:

  • Four breakfast recipes intended to cover a full week of breakfasts. The breakfasts are repeated during the week and may make appearances in later weeks to minimize the time you spend familiarizing yourself with new recipes and to make fuller use of packaged ingredients.
  • Six dinner recipes intended to provide dinners plus leftovers for lunch the following day. This leaves two meals per week free for dining out as a treat.

The shopping list below includes everything needed for the first half of week 1, plus some of the leftover ingredients will be used in the second half of the week.

Note that the Full Plate's breakfast recipes are typically written for 2 servings if prepared freshly each day, or 4 if they can be prepared in advance and heated the next morning. Dinner recipes are typically written for 4 servings to be prepared one evening and saved as leftovers for the following day.
