I love reading recipe blogs and perusing Pinterest for meal ideas–but the act of meal planning? Not so much. I know it can be hard to come up with (and stick to!) a menu for the week, so I wanted to share my weekly menus. My meal plans run Monday-Sunday.
Hi friends! How was your weekend! Can you believe we’re already halfway through July!? Summer takes so long to get here, but then it flies by so fast. Hope you are taking time to do some fun things and eat some good meals.
I have kind of a crazy week ahead. I’m trying to not get too stressed out about it and stay calm. Part of that plan involves making simple meals! Here’s what’s on deck:
Monday: I’m super excited about these veggie muffulettas from Hello Veggie! The recipe uses grilled portobello mushrooms instead of meat. Just omit or sub the cheese to make vegan. I made the olive mix last night and I can’t wait to try it later.
Tuesday: This Sheet Pan Mexican Veggie Dinner from Hummusapien checks all of my boxes: looks great, is easy, and contains sweet potatoes. Plus, it’ll be great for lunches the rest of the week.
Wednesday: The simple marinade in these Grilled Maple Sriracha Kebobs from Table for Two sounds delicious. The recipe uses chicken, but I’m planning to use tofu.
For lunches, I’m making this Tahini Chickpea Cucumber Salad from Hello Veggie. I bought a bunch of romaine at our local Farmer’s Market yesterday, which I chopped up for salads. I’m planning to throw this on top (or maybe some of that sheet pan dinner!).
Tell me: What are you making this week?
