Vegetarian Meal Plan 08.23.2020

A weekly vegetarian meal plan featuring six meals, one dessert, and a printable grocery list! Choose your dinner recipes and get a head start on meals for the week!

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!

Hope you’re all staying well, and enjoy the meal plan!
