Happy National Brunch Weekend!!!!!
I mean…Easter weekend? Same thing?
Regardless of your religious convictions (or lack thereof) I hope you have some serious breakfast plans. I have two kind of MAJOR breakfast/brunches planned for the weekend but we’ll see if I actually get to make both (or either) of them. It’s always a gamble.
Otherwise, I’m basically just counting down my last two weeks of medical school classes, which just happen to perfectly coincide with my countdown to Remy’s birthday. I CAN’T WAIT.
I’m sure I’ll be doing lots of indulgent eating at our Easter celebrations so I’m already planning on getting back to consuming vegetables en masse come Monday. This week’s meal plan is helping with that as per usual with great healthy meals like veggie-stuffed balsamic dijon tempeh buddha bowls, an avocado egg salad to use up all of our leftover hard-boiled eggs, pasta with a creamy cashew-based sauced, crispy tofu with string beans, and spaghetti squash with a vegan artichoke sauce.
