Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 03.19.2017

This week’s healthy vegetarian meal plan incorporates Spring produce to get you amped up for the changing season!

How was your St. Patrick’s Day? We went heavy on the corned beef and cabbage and Irish car bombs…and then we went bowling. Have I told you the story about how excellent I am at bowling? It’s a short one. On the awesomeness scale, I’m probably about a 1.2 level talent, but hey, I have a marvelous time in the process so that’s all that matters, right? I hope whatever you did, it included comforting food and good company.

Happy almost Spring!

It’s that awesome in-between time of year when the Spring produce is gracing us with its presence in the produce section, and we still have a bounty of winter produce as well. This makes for some awesome seasonal eating, which is why this is my favorite time of year from a food standpoint! This week, the ladies and I are incorporating some Spring produce in the meal plan, as well as keeping some hearty winter meals. We have quinoa meatballs, lettuce wraps, tortellini soup, Spring vegetable curry bowls, and mushroom tofu chili.

Enjoy!
