Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 02.26.2017

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- easy and flavorful meals for every night of the week! Prep ahead tips + vegan and gluten-free substitutions!

Hello weekend warriors! What are you up to?

I arrived home on Tuesday from Wyoming and the mountains were just buried in fresh powder. We’ve had a mega winter this year – avalanches, road closures so much fluff to play around in. It has seriously been my dream come true. I may have played hooky on Thursday to go play in the snow.

New to me this week? I got a fitbit to track mileage since I have that half marathon coming up in May. Lemme just tell you – uuuuge wakeup call! That moment when you think you’ve run 5 miles, and it’s been a solid 3? Priceless. Insert cry-laughing emoji here.

Up on the menu this week is that super cozy mushroom bolognese spaghetti squash casserole I showed you a few weeks ago, a fajita gnocchi skillet with avocado salsa, Mexican chopped salad, slow cooker quinoa tortilla soup, and pappardelle with creamy kale and parmesan garlic sauce.

Enjoy!
