Are you as excited about seasonal recipes as we are?! Check out our ultimate guide to seven days of healthy fall meals.
Fall is probably the best season for making delicious, nourishing, seasonally-inspired dishes. There are so many amazing fruits and vegetables in season, including apples, figs, persimmons, brussels sprouts, squash, and (of course!) pumpkin. Plus, with the weather cooling down, it’s the perfect time to finally make those hearty and comforting meals that we couldn’t enjoy in the summer!
If you’re getting excited about cooking this season, we’re going to go over seven days of healthy fall meals. We have a dinner recipe for each night, as well as a couple fun breakfast and snack recommendations. Pro tip: make extra dinner portions so that you can enjoy your healthy meal for lunch the next day!
A Full Week of Healthy Fall Meals
Day One: Healthy Pumpkin Bread & Pesto Pasta with Roasted Pumpkin
Let’s start off your week with not one, but two pumpkin-focused recipes! First, make our Healthy Pumpkin Bread Recipe to enjoy throughout the week for breakfast or an easy snack. It’s made with our collagen-packed Super Amazing Creamer, so you’ll get a beauty boost with every bite!
For dinner, you have to try the Cilantro Pesto Pasta with Roasted Pumpkin & Honey from Ambitious Kitchen. The roasted pumpkin has a sweet and spicy kick (thanks to the honey and chili powder), and pairs perfectly with the pesto pasta. The homemade pesto in this recipe is absolutely delicious, but if you’re short on time, swap it out for a store bought alternative
Day Two: Vegetable Quinoa Soup
Nothing says fall like some homemade soup! Warm up with this easy and healthy Vegetable Quinoa Soup from The Simple Veganista. It’s loaded with plenty of seasonal veggies, including zucchini, cabbage, and carrots. Quinoa and beans add a filling, protein-packed punch.
This recipe has slow cooker, Instant Pot, and stove top instructions, so you can make it however you’d like!
Day Three: Garlic Roasted Salmon and Brussels Sprouts
Take advantage of the in-season brussels sprouts and make this Garlic Roasted Salmon and Brussels Sprouts recipe from EatingWell! The mouthwatering recipe uses the power of fresh oregano, white wine, garlic, and lemon to season the salmon and sprouts.
This healthy fall meal recipe is surprisingly simple, so it’s perfect for a weeknight. Even better, you roast the salmon in the pan alongside the brussels sprouts, which makes for an easy cleanup!
Day Four: Homemade Vegetarian Chili
A lot of chili recipes can feel overly dense, but this Homemade Vegetarian Chili from Cookie and Kate takes a lighter approach to chili. This smoky chili is loaded with nutrient-dense veggies and protein-packed black and pinto beans. Rather than the typical sour cream, top this with some avocado for a healthy, creamy touch. Finish with a squeeze of lime!
Day Five: Turkey Meatballs in Tomato Basil Sauce
If you love traditional meatballs, you have to try this Healthy Turkey Meatball recipe from Ambitious Kitchen. Beyond being delicious, it’s easy to make. It’s ready in just about half an hour, and only requires one pan.
These turkey meatballs are served with a savory tomato basil sauce, and topped with burrata. To really amp up the fall factor, pair this healthy but hearty recipe with some spaghetti squash!
Day Six: Tuscan Farro Soup
Let’s add one more soup to the mix! This easy and healthy Tuscan Farro Soup recipe from Gathering Dreams is the perfect go-to weeknight meal – especially on a cold night. It contains nutrient-dense kale, as well as protein-rich cannellini beans and farro. Carrots, celery, and potatoes bulk up the recipe, while fresh parsley seasons the soup.
Day Seven: Pumpkin Spice Waffles & Stuffed Acorn Squash
Finish off the week with a bang! First, let’s do one more pumpkin recipe. For breakfast, try our Pumpkin Spice Waffles. Just like the pumpkin bread from day one, they feature our vanilla Super Amazing Creamer!
For dinner, try this Instagram-worthy Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe from Delish. It tastes as good as it looks! Each acorn squash is stuffed with sweet Italian sausage, farro, and kale, and seasoned to perfection with thyme. If you’d prefer a meatless version, you can also try it with mushrooms instead of sausage.
Happy cooking! Be sure to place your order for Super Amazing Creamer to complete your week of healthy fall meals!
