A Healthy Meal Plan for Two (With a Shopping List!)

There’s never been a better time to cook at home, and Brava makes it easy to prepare healthy dishes in record time. Here’s a week-long meal plan that serves two people. It emphasizes pantry staples and items from Healthline and Medical News Today’s immune-boosting ingredients list. This includes salmon, broccoli, garlic, chicken, bell peppers, citrus fruits, and almonds. Feel free to double the produce and proteins on the shopping list to plan for an additional week or to feed a family of four.

Some additional notes to consider: Freeze the meat and seafood or buy it frozen, thawing it and patting it dry thoroughly before cooking. We tried to showcase vegetables that last about a week or more in the fridge. However, some frozen substitutions can be made. Those are noted in the shopping list as well as the Brava accessories you will need.
