I meal plan my dinners for seven nights every Friday, so I figured I'd pass along the work I do to help others!
Use my planning as a guide to help you plan meals, or use my plans as is.
Most meals I plan are vegetarian, plant-based or vegan, but when the recipes I choose aren't, I make adjustments to suit our dietary needs. You can do the same!
Here are links to the meals I plan to create for dinner for the week of Saturday, 10/6 to Friday, 10/12
Cauliflower Banh Mi Sandwich via Minimalist Baker
Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes (Paleo, Dairy Free, Whole 30) via Paleo Running Mama (I’ll be using Lightlife foods vegetarian Smart Bacon for this recipe, which will remove the Whole 30 aspect, but I’m fine with that).
Brinner for dinner: Crockpot Breakfast Casserole via Sweet Peas and Saffron (I’ll be using vegetarian sausage via Lightlife Foods, almond milk, egg whites and squash in lieu of the mushrooms as adjustments to suit our dietary needs)
Spicy Zoodles with Crispy Tofu via Pinch of Yum (I’ll be using rice noodles in lieu of the “zoodles” as Whole Foods was out of organic zucchinis on my grocery night).
Vegan Creamy Red Pepper Pasta via The Vegan 8
Night off from cooking
Bonus! Dessert OPTION: I’ve been craving cupcakes lately so I’m going to make this Classic Birthday Cake (yellow cake with chocolate icing) recipe (via Liv for Cake) and make cupcakes instead. All her cake recipes are AMAZING! I’ll be giving some out to family and friends because who doesn’t like getting a surprise cupcake?!
