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.
Hello from Tennessee! I’m currently spending my day in a car trying to make it back to Michigan and shower after three days of rustic camping :). Still gotta eat, though! Here’s the meals for the week!
Monday: We aren’t getting home until late, so we’ll be grabbing some food on the road.
Tuesday: We’re probably going to be super tired tomorrow, so I’m sure we’ll be craving some comfort food. It’s tempting to want to pick up some dinner, but these Vegan Taco Crunch Wrap by Spabettie look easy and delicious!
Wednesday: It’s been a minute since I’ve made zoodles. It always seems daunting, but it’s really so easy (and fun!) to use a spiralizer. These Garlic Parmesan Zoodles from Gimme Delicious look like a tasty twist on plain ol’ pasta sauce. Sub nutritional yeast or vegan parm for the cheese to make it vegan! I may throw in some chickpeas for some added protein.
Thursday: I’ve got some soy curls to use up before they expire. This homemade Jamaica Jerk Sauce from Jessica in the Kitchen looks like the perfect reason to cook some up!
Friday: These Grilled Portobello & Squash Quesadillas from The Roasted Root are the perfect mix of summer vegetables and Friday comfort food! I plan to sub avocado for the cheese, but you could also use a vegan cheese (Follow Your Heart Fiesta blend is awesome!).
Saturday: I started craving this Vegan Filet of Fish Sandwich from The Vegan Caveman the second I saw it! Beer-battered tofu? Say no more.
Sunday: Maybe burgers? We bought a couple packages of the Don Lee Farms plant-based burgers from Costco, so if the weather’s nice, we’ll plan to grill.
Tell me: What are you making this week?
