Back in the Swing of Things-Meal Planning

Happy Tuesday Lovelies! 
Is everyones week off to a wonderful start?  I hope so!
The weather here in Minneapolis has been beautiful, makes me want to be outside 24/7!
I am in love with my morning/afternoon walking to and from work work, gives me a little extra time in the beautiful weather!

Since I am now living on my own I have to get back in the swing of cooking for one!  This means smaller portions (making half a recipe), and eating leftovers!  But don't worry I am still doing the pin challenge!  I actually send my weekly meal plan to my parents and my sister, complete sometimes with the grocery list!  

This week I am focusing on meals that will be easy to pack in my lunch box!  I also realized that I picked a lot of meatless/veggie packed dishes!  Most of the recipes I picked for the week you could add in your choice of protein if you want a little extra! 

So lets kick it off with Zucchini Enchiladas from Skinny Taste!

I have been wanting to make these forever!  They just sound deliciou, and spicy food is what I have been craving recently!

Salads are an easy lunch box staple for me!  So this week I thought why not make a huge quinoa salad to have on hand!  

Next up how about some spaghetti squash?

I love baking my spaghetti squash ahead of time!!  This helps cut down cooking time, because the last thing I want to do after work is wait 45 min for my spaghetti squash to bake!  

And last but not least how about some fresh fish! 

I am thinking of serving the fish over a simple green salad or some brown rice!  Either way I think this dish is going to be delicious!  

Any recipes catching your eye this week?
How do you cook for one?
