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

Well, that was quite a week. And I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty glad it’s behind us. If I never hear the words “throw” and “up” in the same sentence together again, it will be too soon.

This week’s meal plan has us off to a great start! With a hearty spaghetti squash casserole, fun fajita-flavored gnocchi, Mexican chopped salad, a super good-for-you slow cooker quinoa soup, and pappardelle with a creamy you-won’t-believe-its-cauliflower-based sauce. Happy eating!

Yep. It’s a total parenting predicament doozy.

Also known as a no-win situation in which someone is going to vomit all over the floor.

I mean, statistically speaking there are just no other options.
