A Week of Meals Featuring Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are full of nutrients & a great addition to meals. Here are recipes for a week of meals featuring nuts and seeds for breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Hi Friends!

Time for another weekly meal plan. This week I chose one of my favorite groups of ingredients- nuts & seeds. I love pretty much any nut or seed you throw my way and I was able to find lots of creative ways to use things like almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds!

Hopefully you’ll see something that catches your eye!


  • Healthy Berry Breakfast Crisp via Neighborfood
    • Summer berries in this crisp + some yogurt = divine.
  • Chocolate Macademia Chickpea Quinoa Bars via Food Faith Fitness
    • Perfect for breakfast on the run.
  • Roasted Peach, Cherry & Walnut Yogurt Parfaits via The Roasted Root
    • Roasting fruit takes it to the next level.
  • Honey Almond Quinoa Granola via Kitchen Treaty
    • A fun twist on regular granola.
  • Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies via Leelalicious
    • Great for making ahead of time!

    • Sub chicken or tofu if you don’t like shrimp.
  • Lemon Almond Roast Chicken Salad via How Sweet Eats
    • Eat it in a wrap, on some crackers or straight out of the bowl.

    • Pack it in your lunchbox.
