Week two of our new healthy vegetarian meal plan comin’ atcha! In case you missed it, last Saturday, we launched …
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!
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!:
