Vegetarian Meal Plan 08.30.2020

A healthy meal plan that is plant-based with vegan and gluten-free options. Plus options for including animal protein in each meal. Meal plan comes complete with a grocery list to make shopping for the week easy.

Happy weekend to ya!

Here’s another lovely plant-based meal plan for your meal prepping enjoyment. How are you liking them so far??

The fires are clearing up in CA, which means the skies are becoming a brighter shade of blue here in Nevada. This means plenty of outdoor time this weekend (hazaaaah!).

For those of you who are health nuts, did you know Vitamin D is a huge immunity booster? It serves many, many crucial functions in the body and is actually a hormone. This to say, if you can, get outside and spend some time in the sun!

This week, we have 15-Minute Chickpea Gyros, One Pan Veggie Red Curry, Kale Caesar Pasta Salad, Cajun Sweet Potato Salad, Grilled Vegetable Avocado Quesadillas, Fresh Tomato Sauce Pasta. For dessert, we have sweet and salty double chocolate cookies!

SUNDAY

15 MINUTE CHICKPEA GYROS from I Heart Vegetables

Prep Ahead Tip: No advance prep necessary!

Vegan/Gluten Free Substitutions: Use gluten free pita bread. For a vegan option, use hummus in place of tzatziki sauce

WEDNESDAY

CAJUN SWEET POTATO SALAD from Joanne Easts Well

Prep Ahead Tip: The sweet potatoes can be roasted up to 4 days ahead of time.

Vegan/Gluten Free Substitutions: Omit the cheddar cheese or use vegan cheddar to make this vegan. Recipe is already gluten free.

Meat Lover’s Edition: Serve the potato salad alongside your favorite animal protein. I’d suggest baked salmon or grilled steak.

FRESH TOMATO SAUCE PASTA from Rhubarbarians

Prep Ahead Tip: The sauce is actually more flavorful if made ahead! Best if made overnight, but can be made up to 2 days ahead

Vegan/Gluten Free Substitutions: Omit the parmesan or use vegan parmesan for vegan. Use gluten free pasta for gluten free.

Meat Lover’s Edition: Add ground beef or turkey to the tomato sauce.
