Summer Dinner Meal Plan for One Person

In this blog post I am sharing a weekly dinner meal plan for a one person. This meal plan contains two dinners. The meal plan is low waste, milk free, gluten free, lower carb, and very easy to prep. For this meal plan I only included dinners, if you are looking for a full weekly meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks check out an older post of mine Summer Weekly Meal Prep Plan or Back to School Weekly Meal Prep Plan

Shopping List 

  • 15 oz can salmon
  • 2 bell peppers (which ever color you like best)
  • red onion
  • fresh dill
  • leafy lettuce
  • lemon
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • avocado
  • pico de Gallo or your favorite salsa
  • eggs
  • taco seasoning
Pantry Staples
  • almond or oat flor
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil 
The two dinners for this weekly dinner meal plan is Salmon Burgers and corn on the cob and turkey taco salad with Fajita Style Peppers and Onions. Each dinner makes four meals. To keep this dairy free I did not make the dill yogurt sauce and did not include that in the meal plan.

For the salmon burgers I would recommend adding more almond flour than the recipe calls for. 

I simply make my corn on the cob in the microwave. You wrap it in a wet paper towel and cook it for 3 minutes.

My suggestion for how to use the left over dill if you did not make the dill sauce from the salmon burger recipe is to add it to eggs for breakfast or salad and sandwiches for lunch. 

Since you only need one egg for the salmon burgers use the rest of the carton for breakfast.

Turkey Taco Salad with Fajita Style Peppers and Onions

To avoid wasting the pepper and onion used in the salmon burgers use the left over pepper and onion for the taco salad. How I cook my ground turkey is I brown it in a skillet with olive oil and Fody Taco Seasoning. If you want to learn more about Fody products check out My Favorite Fody Foods Products and How I Use Them. Once the ground turkey is most browned add the peppers and onions to the skillet along with more seasoning. Cook until your desired softness. To assemble the turkey taco salad add leafy lettuce, the turkey, peppers, onions, avocado, and pico de Gallo or your favorite salsa. You can also add any of your other favorite taco toppings. I personally buy one avocado and use one fourth of the avocado for each taco salad. I store the rest in a reusable silicone bag in the fridge. 

Meal Prep Instructions

My suggestions for meal prepping is to make the salmon burgers and corn on the cob as the first four dinners of the week and then make the turkey taco salad with fajita style peppers and onions for the last four meals of the week. Make sure to put your ground turkey in the freezer if you buy it at the beginning of the week. I recommend putting it in the fridge the night before to thaw out. After making the salmon burgers let them cool completely and then store them in a container in the fridge. The same can be done for the turkey and fajita style peppers and onions. I recommend getting an avocado that will ripen by the second half of the week. 

I hope that these meals have inspired you to try new recipes, ingredients and healthy meals. Below are additional links to other food related posts on the blog.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout. I did not created the workout that is used as the example for the content of this spread. The workout is from Pintrest Workout Plan .  Workout Tracker This next tracker is in the format of a monthly calendar. In order to track the different workouts accomplished throughout

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
