Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- easy and flavorful meals for every night of the week! Prep ahead tips + vegan and gluten-free substitutions!

Sooooooooooooo I’m mega bummed that I have to work this whole weekend, but on the bright side I had yesterday off and I got SO. MUCH. DONE. Because the nanny was here, I could churn out some MAJOR cooking escapades to keep us fed for the week aheadĀ and photograph them. And I still sent her home early, at 2pm, so that Remy and I could snuggle up on the couch without anyone giving me stink eye for letting her nap on me instead of in her crib or stroller. HEY, she’s only young once and I had to work super crazy long hours this past week and barely got to see her…so don’t judge me.

Hopefully you guys can have a more leisurely food-filled weekend that will involve some of the awesome recipes in this week’s meal plan! We’ve got a hearty crockpot soup, some mega spiced up Asian noodles, tasty veggie burgers, a super fun seasonal salad, and baked sweet potatoes loaded with all sorts of goodness. Happy weekend!
