Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- an entire week of quick, easy and nutritious meals that the whole family will love! (with vegan and gluten-free options)


So, this is my favorite meal plan yet.

Stuffed peppers AND pizza on a Monday (!!!) AND tostada Friday AND so much stone fruit AND kale salads. It’s seriously a smorgasbord of so many of the best things in life. Combine that with the fact that my next two week rotation is pass/fail with NO final at the end…golden.

I might even have time to get a not-pasta recipe on the blog this week. Here’s to hoping.

Happy week ahead!


Mediterranean Quinoa Stuffed Peppers from Making Thyme for Health

Prep Ahead Tip: Cook quinoa and lentils up to one day in advance.

Cherry Tomato Zucchini and Pesto Pizza from Eats Well With Others

Prep Ahead Tip: This recipe can be assembled and baked in less than twenty minutes as written, but if you’re extra short on time, the cherry tomatoes and zucchini can be chopped the night before and the gouda cheese can be shredded ahead of time.

Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: To make this gluten free, make it with your favorite gluten free pizza dough. It can be made vegan by omitting the cheese.

30-Minute Summer Vegetable Tostadas from She Likes Food

Prep Ahead Tip: This recipe only takes 30 minutes so there is no need to prep anything ahead of time. If desired, you could chop the vegetables ahead of time though.

Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Make sure to use corn tortillas for the tostadas to make gluten free. To make dairy free, either omit the cheese or use dairy free cheese.
