Monday Meal Plan (Week of July 30)

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 and happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty lazy and relaxing, which was much needed. We went off the meal plan a bit. I was too lazy to cook this weekend, and we ordered pizza last night–sometimes you just need that, you know? So there are a couple of repeats this week (but hey, it saves money on the grocery bill!).

Jamaican jerk soy curls with broccoli and rice–this turned out so good! Follow my vegan food journey on Instagram @herbivorean

Monday:  The Jamaica Jerk Sauce from Jessica in the Kitchen was SO insanely delicious and flavorful! I used two habanero peppers instead of the scotch bonnets–it was spicy but still tolerable (although I like spice). I had a little bit of sauce left, so I’m marinating some tofu in it to grill later with some squash I got at the farmer’s market.

Tuesday: These Spicy Buffalo Tofu Wings by I Love Vegan look like they’ll be delicious in a wrap!

Wednesday: I’m going out with a friend to see the Arctic Monkeys! We’re planning to grab some food beforehand.

Thursday: I feel like I’ll want some greens at this point, so I’m planning on making Hummusapien’s Israeli Power Salad. (I’m going to modify a bit and bought a salad kit with kale and Brussels sprouts because again, lazy.) I actually haven’t had za’atar seasoning yet, so I’m excited to try it.

I never got around to these Vegan Taco Crunch Wraps by Spabettie, so let’s try again this weekend!

Saturday: Leftovers (or possibly out)

Sunday: These Vegan Ribs by Connoisseurus Veg look delicious! I’ll plan to roast sweet potatoes on the side (and maybe cornbread if I’m feeling motivated!? Probably not, though).

Tell me: What are you making this week?
