It is going to be a WEEKEND.

I have so much Christmas prep to do, it is unreal. Ten types of cookies to make, cakes, pies, and lasagnas to prep. Oh, and did I mention that we all still have runny noses and sore throats and coughs and are a total hot mess?? It’s only 7AM but I need a nap.

Even though I’m equal parts excited/horrified about all of the holiday cooking I have yet to do, I’m also starting to think about some of the healthier meals I can make this week to bridge the dinner gap between Christmas and New Year’s. Hello meal plan. I see you. Let’s dig in.

  • butternut squash kale lasagna – so hearty and comforting, and perfect for a holiday meal if you haven’t planned your menu yet!
  • curried cauliflower chickpea buddha bowl – yup, need
  • Thai lentil vegan meatloaf – never seen flavors like this in a meatloaf
  • sweet potato lentil tortilla soup – hi, yes please.
  • teriyaki stir fry with broccoli and chickpeas – so many gorgeous greens!

Happy eating!

    As always, thank you for the wonderful recipes! I just wanted to mention, the light pink lettering for the recipe title(s) is just about impossible to read, or is it only me?
