Vegetarian Meal Plan 09.06.2020

A healthy plant-based weekly meal plan with vegan and vegetarian options. Print the grocery list to get started on meal prep for the week!

Happy Labor Day Weekend to you all!

Doing anything fun? Meal prepping? 😉 

We’re experiencing a heat wave here in Nevada Land, so the weekend will be spent near water with a side of all-you-can-eat sushi. In essence, we’re trying to keep it as cool as possible.

If you’re trying to keep that weekly routine of making your meals ahead of time, we.got.you!! Just because it’s a holiday weekend doesn’t mean life doesn’t happen. We’ve gotta eat, right?

Did you have a chance to check out my Double Chocolate Edible Cookie Dough I posted this week? If not, I think you’ll love it! It’s a healthier dessert recipe made using BLACK BEANS of all things! It’s truly my favorite no-bake dessert recipe to date.

On to the food! This week, we have Pesto Quesadillas with White Beans and Tomato, Roasted Sweet Potato Kale Salad with Avocado and Jammy Egg, Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Korean Tempeh Bowls, Creamy Vegetable Noodles, and Vegan Lasagna Soup.

Enjoy! xo

Whatcha doin’?

During these crazy times it seems like we’re all just hunkered down..working, playing away from the crowds when possible…just trying to work on our inner souls. At least that’s the boat I’m in 😉

There are wildfires all over California currently, and we’re pretty well swaddled in smoke. Send your warm wishes to our firefighters if you have some to spare!

Food this week! WELL, we have a great lineup for you all! On the menu: Guacamole Tostadas, Teriyaki Vegetable Stir Fry, Pasta Alla Norma, Chickpea Salad Sandwich, Southwest White Bean Veggie Burgers, and Summer Grain Bowls. For dessert? My amazing gluten-free chocolate cake I posted recently!

Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 08.09.2020

A healthy vegetarian meal plan featuring 6 nutritious meals and 1 delicious dessert! Check here every Saturday for a new plant-based meal plan. Get your meal prep on!

Well hello there!

EXCITING NEWS!!

Our weekly Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans are back! We took a 5-month hiatus on the meal plans, but starting this week, we will be posting a new plant-based meal plan that is both seasonally-inspired and nutritious each and every Saturday.

Here’s what you need to know!:

Who is the “we?” We are a group of six bloggers – myself, as well as Liz from I Heart Vegetables, Izzy from She Likes Food, Josepha from Hummusapien, from Trish from Rhubarbarians, and Joanne from Eats Well With Others. We each contribute one recipe from our sites per week, and each week a dessert is featured from one of our sites for an optional treat. 

That means each meal plan includes 6 dinner recipes and one dessert! 

The Grocery List:

In addition, each meal plan will include a printable grocery list to make shopping for the week extra simple. You can gather your groceries all in one go for efficiency’s sake. If you spend a day meal prepping for the week, the grocery list will be your best friend.

The grocery list is broken out by recipe, so if there is a recipe you don’t want to make, you can simply ignore that part of the grocery list.

When Can I Expect To See A New Meal Plan?

Every Saturday! Each meal plan posted every Saturday will include a NEW set of recipes. Meaning, you’ll see a different mix of recipes each week. The recipes will eventually be repeated, but you won’t ever see the same exact combination of recipes twice (unless, of course, you intentionally repeat a meal plan because you loved it so much).

I will be posting the meal plan on my site at zero dark thirty each and every Saturday, so regardless of where you live it will be here when you wake up.

But, Julia…you aren’t vegetarians…why the vegetarian meal plan?

GREAT question! I’m far from vegetarian (I eat animal protein at almost every meal); however, I do consume a tremendous amount of vegetables. In fact, the majority of my food intake comes in the form of vegetables, followed by some form of protein and brown rice.

I don’t carry an opinion about the way people should eat. Animal protein is crucial for me, but it isn’t for everyone! I find a plant-based diet can work very well for certain individuals, and I choose to cater this site to various types of eaters.

I never aim to offend anyone on this site, so if your emotions are closely tied to your style of eating, this may not be the best site for you, as I tend to bounce around. I don’t subscribe to a specific diet, so if you’re cool with that, RAD!

Can I add animal protein?

Absolutely! You can add your favorite type of animal protein to any of the meals within the meal plan at any time. The majority of the meals are super easy to toss protein right in. In the event it isn’t easy to just add it to the dish, you can always prep something (like my Go-To Crispy Salmon, Instant Pot Shredded Chicken, The Best Roast Tri Tip, Easy Baked Cod, or Easy Baked Chicken). You got this!

Will I ever see a Paleo, Whole30, or Keto Meal Plan?

Yes! I plan on posting various types of meal plans, but they will not be a regular installment like this one.  I will be designing these meal plans entirely on my own using only recipes from my site, so they will only pop up every once in a while.

Without further adieu, here is the meal plan for the week of 08.09.2020!:

Right now may be the best time to begin meal planning if you haven’t made it a part of your weekly routine. With so much uncertainty, it’s best to play it safe and prepare nourishing meals at home that help boost your immune system.

If you haven’t checked out my Immunity-Boosting Turmeric Soup with Vegetables, give it a go! It is one of my go-tos not just for regular everyday eating but also for those times I’m trying to remain well and give my immune system an extra boost.

Let’s discuss this week’s meal plan!

On this week’s Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan: Easy Red Lentil Curry, Sheet Pan Mexican Veggie Dinner, 30 Minute Chickpea and Vegetable Stir Fry, Pesto Quinoa Salad with Asparagus, Avocado, and Kale, and Roasted Broccoli Chickpea Lemon Pasta.

Did you take a look at my Homemade Peanut Butter Cups I posted this week? If not, go have a looksy and come right back! The recipe is very versatile in the sense that you can use any nut butter and sweeten them in many ways. If you follow a low-carb diet, you’re in luck! I included a keto option with the recipe.
