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 Nuts, Nut Butter & Maple Syrup
Green Smoothie, Bagel with Vegan Butter x2
Hash Browns with Veggies x2
Overnight Oats with Berries x2
