Every Monday, I create a menu plan for the week ahead. I’ve always found menu planning to be helpful, but especially when eating a vegan diet.
Sometimes I forget to make one, and those weeks are just awful. I stare into the fridge and whine that there’s “nothing to eat”, even though the fridge is packed full of deliciousness. It’s bad.
So – I menu plan every Monday (usually) to make things easier on myself. And it works. I promise.
Here is the menu plan for my family this week:
Stove-top Oatmeal with Pineapple & Coconut x2
Green Smoothie, Scrambled Tofu on Toast
Hash Browns with Veggies x2
Blueberry Muffins, Green Smoothie
Vegan Pancakes, Fruit
The Big Vegan Salad Plate
Israeli Couscous & Cauliflower Salad
Quinoa Bowl with Roasted Veggies & Creamy Cashew Dressing
Quinoa Bowl with Root Vegetables & Zesty Dressing
Pesto Pizza with Veggies
Cauliflower “Parmesan” Over Pasta
Quinoa & Black Bean Vegetable Soup
Potato & Black Bean Burritos
Breakfast for Dinner
Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies
Crackers/Veggies & Hummus
