Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- weekly recipes with prep ahead tips, vegan/GF substitutions, and a color-coded shopping list!

Is anyone else still in a Thanksgiving food coma-induced stupor?

Or maybe it’s just that I’m trying to “sleep train” my child out of our bed and into her own bed so my sleep the past few days has not exactly been what you’d call high quality. Hmm.

Either way, my meal planning mojo is a tad bit subpar so I’m more thankful than usual to have these meal plans at my fingertips. I know I say this every week, but this week is SUCH A GOOD ONE. So many deliciously healthy options to get us back on track after eating pie for breakfast all weekend (<– don’t judge me). I hope you enjoy it!

Sunday

Mushroom Lentil Loaf from Making Thyme for Health

Prep Ahead Tip: This is a Sunday meal because it requires quite a bit of prep. However, if you’d like to prep in advance you can shop the vegetables and cook the lentils a day or two ahead of time.

Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Recipe is already vegan. Use gluten-free breadcrumbs to make GF.

    The bad part about not hosting Thanksgiving is the lack of pie available for breakfast.

    They all look comforting, healthy, and delicious. Just what I need after eating so much rich decadent food last week.
