Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 10.16.2016

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- weekly recipes with prep ahead tips, vegan/GF substitutions, and a color-coded shopping list!

What a week, what a week! Where I’m at, our weather went from warm and sunny at the beginning of the week to windy/rainy at the end. I’m taking any and all excuses to coup myself up on the ol’ recliner with a blanket, hot cocoa, and catch up on reading, so the chilly weather is fine by me! My plans for the weekend? Some hot yoga, some recipe development, and I happen to be roasting a turkey on Sunday. In the mood for a friendsgving feast? Come on over!

For menu planning this week, we have burrito bowls, curry, pasta, more pasta, and stuffing. That’s right, folks, we’re eating stuffing for dinner, because it’s our party and we’ll stuff if we want to.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Leave them at the sound of the bee…err..I mean, leave a comment below. Or send me an email. Or facsimile transmittal. Or carrier pigeon…

Anyhoo, be sure you print out the grocery list below to make shopping a breeze, and have yourselves a fabulous weekend!

    We’ve had so much rain the past few days and now it’s getting hot all over again…crazy! And I would’ve loved to have come over for that Diestel turkey…my favorite! This meal plan is so full of recipes that I would love. I’m definitely adding some of these to my meal plan!
