  1. Thank you for these delish dishes. You just made each day a pleasure!

  2. Rated 3 out of 5

    The pictures make the recipes look delisions, but I would rather see a grid of the pics where I can just click on the one I like and not have to spend 10 minutes scrolling through TOO many pictures!

  3. Love his list so much!!!!

  4. Thank you! Thank you! I found your blog last week and I used it to make my family’s lunches and it was so good! I can’t wait to try these recipes too! They are all healthy, delicious and different! AND easy enough that a person like me who can’t cook can make them!

  5. I wish you had incorporated more vegetarian meals to help those who want to eat more plant based yet need some guidance. 

  6. Love! Love! Love Damn Delicious!

  7. Chicken burrito bowls were awesome and so beautiful to look at!
    I used 2% greek yogurt and my chipotle dressing was a bit thick, but still oh so tasty! Thank you for another incredible recipe!

  8. I love these, thank you, Taco bowls and Thai Chicken Buddha bowls especially!

  9. This is Awesome! My favorite one is “Copycat Starbucks Chicken and Hummus Bistro Box”. The best thing I like about this meal plan is that its so easy to prepare. I made one of your meals and I can swear it took me no more than 15 mins to get everything ready and I was out the door to work.

  10. OK. So on Friday I was thinking I’d like to take 2 weeks to clean up my eating, slim down my meals & re-energize my meal planning. My eating has all gotten very haphazard since winter & I really need a re-boot. Reading over these recipes — especially the Buddha Bowls — I had the thought: this is it! Chungah has nailed it again. I’m printing these 11 recipes out, making up a master list of

    ingredients, putting together 2 shopping lists (one for this week, one for next week), and will make these my main meal-of-the-day for the next 2 weeks (I’ll have some duplicates). In some cases I’ll make a full batch of meat & freeze what I don’t use that day for later. My mouth is watering already! Thanks, Chungah!
