Monday Meal Plan (Week of August 6)

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.

I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S AUGUST! I know I say it all the time, but summer flies by SO fast! I won’t lie though–I’m getting a little excited about fall, and especially Halloween. I love warm weather and summer, but fall is secretly my favorite season.

Dinner last night: tempeh ribs with grilled corn and sweet potato

This week’s menu is pretty simple.

Monday:  It’s been a hot weekend, so this Vegan Caesar Smashed Chickpea Sandwich from The Vegan 8 looks like the perfect light dinner!

Tuesday: Do you like jackfruit? I’ve been on the fence. I like it when it’s cooked well, but sometimes there’s not enough texture for me. I’ve got a couple of cans to use up, and these Vegan Barbacoa Jackfruit Street Tacos from The Veg Life seem like the perfect reason to give it another go.

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: I just bought a bunch of spicy avocado hummus from Costco, which will be perfect for these Grilled Vegetable Hummus Bowls from Making Thyme for Health.

We will be out and about, so no big meals planned–likely veggie burgers or veggie dogs!

BONUS: I’m also going to make these Vegan Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies from Minimalist Baker to take to work this week.

Tell me: What’s your favorite thing to make when it’s hot? What are you making this week?

  1. GIRL, fall is my favorite too – and I’m soooo not ashamed about it! Give me all the pumpkin flavors, gorgeous colors, hearty soups and scarves! 😉
