The Week 5 Seasonal Eating Meal Plan begins with a snowstorm while in lockdown. It’s a week requiring comfort food that is satisfying but not heavy in the tummy. A little too much sitting and snacking through the past few weeks needs a dietary remedy.
It’s also St. Brigid’s Day and Groundhog Day in the seasonal calendar. I love this turn of seasons from winter’s darkest days to brighter sunlight and rapidly increasing daylight hours!
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.
You can also find the weekly meal plans in the Files section of our Facebook community. Click here to join!

Week 5 of Seasonal Eating 2020
We finally started growing indoor greens in late January. Bean sprouts, seed sprouts and microgreens are a tasty addition to almost any meal. Growing your own can help off-set a significant portion of your winter food budget. Click here to learn how!
Snow is in the forecast. A lot of it! Soups and teas dominate the meal plan. I think I’ll have something simmering on the stovetop all week long. I may even use the wood stove for some hearty bean soup!
