Week 4 of seasonal eating meal plans is deeply rooted in the seasonal flavors of January including roasted root vegetables, elderberry chai tea, and a deeply satisfying Moroccan butternut squash soup.
Each week’s meal plan will be released on Sunday with our newsletter. It will include a shopping list and recommended recipes.
Along with the downloadable meal plans, I’ll explain any prep required to eat seasonally with ease each week of the year.

Week 4 of Seasonal Eating 2021 | the last week of January
Such a blessing to have affordable, fresh, local, and mostly organic produce to complement my ever-dwindling pantry in January! Many of these items will be highlighted in week 5’s meal plan, but this arugula and microgreen mix was gone before this week’s end, like lightning!
I also started a new batch of mung bean sprouts and microgreens this week…finally! And, I am eager to get some of my own winter greens growing under lights this week.
I’ve re-entered the world of gluten and have been backing our bread this January, as well. I feel fine and happy to return to traditional baking. Someone in our Facebook Group recommended I use the King Author Flour site for reliable recipes, and I’ve fallen in love with this one! Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!

Most weeks, I’ll share my own shopping list. This week, however, we really dug deep into the foods we had on hand.
As for proteins, I signed up for Butcher Box because they were running an enticing special. The scallops and salmon in the seafood stew came from our first delivery. I am thrilled with the product and plan on writing a review soon.
