And we’re back!!! Better, stronger, more delicious than ever.

Longtime readers will remember the healthy vegetarian meal plans that I created with a slew of other awesome bloggers up until, well, pretty much when the pandemic hit. Honestly, the timing of the pause was a coincidence but our lack of momentum in restarting it *might* have had something to do with quarantine fatigue. Also it felt a little superfluous to be making meal plans when grocery shopping was so difficult and it was hard to find the basic essentials like pasta, flour, butter, etc.

Let’s not dwell on the past, though, and focus instead on the present! Our new and improved healthy vegetarian meal plans now feature SIX recipes per week along with a delicious dessert, prep ahead tips, and suggestions for vegan and gluten free substitutions, with the overall goal of helping you get healthy meals on the table for your family Sunday through Friday. The plans are structured so that you can pick and choose which recipes you want to make with a shopping list at the end that is organized by recipe, making that even easier. Let us know if you have any feedback for the types of recipes you want to see or ways to make this more usable for YOU.

And now let’s get eating, shall we?
