Anyone else COMPLETELY in denial that Thanksgiving is this week?!?! I feel like this year is just flying by. Wasn’t it just August??

I’m sure everyone has pie on the brain and you don’t really want to be bothered too much with regular healthy dinners, BUT YOU NEED TO EAT!! And fuel yourself for the marathon that is Thanksgiving cooking and baking!!!

Don’t worry – we’ve got options. Here’s what’s on the menu this week!

  • mushroom lentil loaf – you won’t miss the meat!
  • spaghetti squash with vegan spinach artichoke sauce – so creamy
  • butternut squash and yam curry – perfect if you overbought some Thanksgiving veggies!
  • linguine with chickpeas and zucchini – so easy! so delicious!
  • vegetarian cauliflower fried rice – way to pack those veggies in

Happy eating!
