After planning out meals for the week, I admit, we’re going pretty light on the meat. My bad! Both dinners are vegetarian friendly, and we’re sticking to salmon in the afternoon. But you’ll get a sufficient amount of fiber this week, that’s for sure!
Keep in mind that a lot of these recipes below are meant for one person. If you plan on cooking for more than one, you’ll want to double or triple the amount you need listed below. It’s part of my grand theory that recipes would be a lot easier for everyone if they were single serving, and people can simply multiply accordingly.
Enjoy the meals this week! We’re saying goodbye to Summer (with peaches) and welcoming Fall with open arms (pumpkin oatmeal).

Breakfast: Pumpkin Oatmeal
Get a boost of fiber in the morning with this pumpkin oatmeal recipe. The recipe calls for almond milk, but use the regular cow’s milk from the grocery list. It will taste even better.
What you’ll need: Rolled-cut oats, canned pumpkin, milk, pumpkin spice seasoning (apple spice also works), maple syrup, sliced almonds & chia seeds (optional)
Lunch: Salmon Patties
What you’ll need: Can of salmon, egg, panko breadcrumbs, green onions, parsley, garlic powder, paprika, salt, olive oil, kale, green beans, sweet potatoes
Dinner #1: One-Bowl Mac & Cheese
An easy bowl of mac and cheese is great to whip up for dinner, and perfectly makes one serving. If you’re making for more than one, simply double/triple the ingredient amounts.
What you’ll need: Mini pasta shells, butter, flour, Greek yogurt, milk, sharp white cheddar cheese
Dinner #2: Kale Parmesan Flatbread
You could really prep any pizza combo on this flatbread, but to keep things simple, use up that large bunch of curly kale you bought for your lunch salads and use it on this dinner as well.
What you’ll need: Naan flatbread, shredded parmesan cheese, kale, garlic, olive oil
Brunch: Eggs Benedict
Enjoy this saucy eggs Benedict recipe during the long weekend—you deserve it!
What you’ll need: Eggs, butter, english muffins, Canadian bacon (or pork roll), lemon juice, paprika
Dessert: Peach Cobbler
This recipe makes for one serving! So if you want to enjoy it more than once this week, make sure to buy a sufficient amount of beaches. One peach will make one cobbler.
What you’ll need: Peach, unbleached all-purpose flour, cornmeal, butter, sugar, baking powder, milk, salt, cornstarch, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, ice cream (optional)
