Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans- weekly recipes with prep ahead tips, vegan/GF substitutions, and a color-coded shopping list!

Good morning!  I went to a parenting group yesterday and we all had to go around to talk about what kind of self care we do for ourselves.  Naturally, in a group where everyone has babies under one year old, there wasn’t much self care being done.  One woman was happy that she had gotten to go to the grocery store by herself and another one was excited about the 2am bubble bath she got to take because she couldn’t go back to sleep after nursing her daughter. 

I couldn’t think of a single thing I had done just for myself in the last 3 months.  I think that even when we don’t have children it is hard to carve time out of the day for ourselves to do something that makes us feel special.  Sometimes I feel guilty when I choose to lay on the couch and watch tv rather than get some dishes done while Eli naps.  

So, as hard as it may be, let’s all try to make some time for ourselves this week and doing something we love!  Hopefully these Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans will help give us more time in our lives to just sit back and enjoy things!  :)
