Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 01.29.2017

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

How was your first month of 2017? No complaints in my neck of the woods, as we’ve been blessed with a magnificent amount of snow. I couldn’t ask for a better start to the year!

New for me this week? We started watching Bates Motel…not the type of show I ever thought I’d get into, but folks, I am INTO it! We made that Loaded Turkey Chili for the third time in as many weeks, and I also snagged an olloclip for my iphone to take some snazzy iphone photos of my outdoor meanderings. What else? Have you been watching the Australian Open? Did you see the Nadal and Zverev match last weekend? Omoooh mygawsh, sports fans, there is some serious talent out there.

On the menu this week: Breakfast bowls (because everyone loves breakfast for dinner!), a warm lentil and kale salad, winter veggie tostadas, avocado bean burgers and a swift sweet potato curry. Enjoy your week’s worth of meals, and as always, holler at your girl if you have any questions!

    Did you see the Nadal/Federer final match?? OMG it was amazing! They are both beast athletes. And the Williams sisters against each other in the finals? I don’t think the Australian Open could have had a better outcome!

    And there’s so much delicious looking food in this post!
