Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 12.11.2016

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

Greetings from rainy Reno!

I’m writing this post while listening to the rain come down, and it’s such a relaxing, therapeutic sound. Plus, rain in Reno typically means snow in the mountains so I’m keeping my fingers crossed we get some fluffy powder for some adult play time. Weather in your neck of the woods? You frozen? You burried in snow? You catching some rays on your lunch breaks?

New in my life this past week? I joined a Spin gym, which has been a much-needed reminder that I need to step up my athletic steaze, because holy crap, the classes are intense deliciously intense. I’m having a little work done on the ol’ blog site, so things will look slightly different here in a few weeks (slash months) – stay tuned! I’ve been rocking my new timepiece from JORD. The boyfriend and I harvested and decorated (and by decorated, I mean literally tossed a strand of Christmas lights on the thing and called it good) our very first Christmas tree, and I’ve been doing some 2017 planning for the life and the site. Any pre-2017 suggestions? Hollaaaaa.

MENU ITEMS! Ugh…I want all of these meals right meow. This may just be my favorite meal plan yet! We have a succulent, creamy spaghetti squash dish, a crock pot chickpea tiki masala, loaded potaters, lentil bolognese, and beet burgers (because it’s BEET season, son!)! As per usual, hit me up if you have any questions, and be sure to print out the grocery list to make your shopping experience a cinch.
