Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Greek yogurt can be substituted for the sour cream in the paprikash recipe.
  • You’ll have extra cabbage leftover from the pizza. Cabbage will keep for a few weeks in the fridge, so you can save it for another recipe, or check out our ideas for using leftover cabbage here.
  • You’ll need a small bunch of kale for the salad and 1 1/2 cups of kale for the pesto—just buy a big bunch, then measure out what you need for the pesto and use the rest for the salad.
  • Buy the biggest spaghetti squash you can find—if you can’t find any big ones, buy two or three smaller ones.
  • While you can skip this step if you forget about it or don’t have time, freezing and thawing the tofu for Friday’s soup will give it a chewy texture that makes it more chicken-like.
  • If your grocery store doesn’t sell no-chicken broth, you can make it yourself or use vegetable broth instead.
