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

In case you were ever concerned I was going to turn into a sleep-deprived zombie…HAVE NO FEAR!

Because, IT’S HAPPENED.

Working 10 out of the past 12 days for twelve PLUS hours a day will do that to you. Just need to push through the last two days of this rotation and hope that I come out on the other side mostly intact.

So, let’s get to the point – the food! This week’s vegetarian meal plan is so good and GOOD FOR YOU that I can hardly take it! There’s a gluten free spiralized enchilada bake, a sweet potato lentil salad, a super healthy alfredo, spaghetti squash boats, and a soup that will warm you from the inside out. Happy eating!

Some like it HOT and those who do will love this spicy vegan thai coconut red curry stuffed with crispy tofu cubes and bell peppers, and served atop a bed of coconut-saffron rice

Spicy Vegan Thai Coconut Red Curry with Coconut-Saffron Rice

I feel like I will have won at motherhood when my child declares thai curry as her favorite food in life.

I mean, I’d also be pretty darn happy if it was kale, but I think I need to be realistic here. This honeymoon period of eating where she’ll inhale anything I put in front of her is almost certainly going to come to an end when the toddler stage hits and I don’t think there’s any hope for the dark leafy greens when it does.

So, Team Thai Curry! FTW!

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 ahead 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!
