I’m really excited to share today’s post with you guys!  I know I don’t usually post on Saturdays but I’ve recently teamed up with some amazing food bloggers and we are going to be bringing you Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans each week!  To be honest, I’ve never been the best meal planner, so I’m hoping this will become a great tool for you all as well as myself.

I’ve teamed up with Sarah from Making Thyme For Health,  Alexis from Hummusapien, Julia from The Roasted Root and Joanne from Eats Well with Others to bring you these weekly meal plans that feature vegetarian meals that are both nutritious and approachable.

If you are looking for some more organization in your life when it comes to weekly dinners then this series is definitely for you.  Each week we will offer you five days of Healthy Vegetarian Meals plus a printable color coded shopping list so you can buy what you need ahead of time and get a healthy dinner on the table in no time.  Green is for produce, blue is for pantry items and red is for dairy.  We also offer vegan and gluten free substitutions!  I hope you all really enjoy this new series :)

 

Sunday

Ultimate Grilled Portobello Burgers from The Roasted Root.

Prep Ahead Tip: Because everything gets grilled or is left raw, there is no prep ahead necessary. If serving more than 2 people, double or triple the recipe as needed.

Vegan/Gluten ­free Substitutions: Sub the Havarti for avocado or omit the cheese altogether. Use gluten ­free buns of choice.

Monday

Stone Fruit Panzanella Salad from Eats Well With Others.

Prep Ahead Tip: The cherry tomatoes and zucchini can be roasted ahead of time and the stone fruit can be chopped ahead of time as well.  Combine and store together in the fridge.

    All of these meal plans look awesome! do these recipes have about the same caloric value or was that not looked at when creating the meal plan?
