Who doesn’t want a planned grocery list and listed meals for the whole week? Especially if the meals are healthy, easy to cook, and satisfies your family. Well, we all look for healthy meals for our family with balanced nutrition and a lot of protein content especially we follow vegan/vegetarian diet.
Here, I bring vegan, vegetarian, gluten free meal options for you to make your evenings smooth and stress free so that you have sufficient time to spend the much wanted (craved) quality hour with your loved ones.
I planned this meal keeping the calorie consumption and the shortage of time in mind and hence tried to keep all the three major meals under accepted calorie count with an average daily requirement of 2000 calories and most importantly I aimed at keeping all the recipes within 30 minutes.
I have included Breakfast ideas, lunch ideas and detailed dinner plans.
Along with the breakfast ideas that are provided in the meal plan, include some fruits and almond milk or your choice of vegan milk to make it a complete morning meal.
For Mid-Morning Snacks – include smoothies into your diet to keep you hydrated and full till lunch time.
For Evening Snacks include some low fat vegan yogurt, fresh or dry fruits and nuts. You can also opt for hot snacks if desired.

Yummy, I should try this. 🙂
You are so organized! I am more of the meal-planning-on-the-fly type. It’s kind of a challenge for me, to come up with something good out of whatever I have on hand! But your way is better. 🙂
This is a really nicely laid out meal plan!
Stuffed mini sweet peppers! Those sound amazing. Thank you for the idea and the organization! Love it (:
Menu planning is a great idea. I have never been good at planning meals ahead of time. I always end up waiting to see what I am in the mood for. It is not the best plan because it leaves me at the mercy of time and availability and sometimes less than optimal choices.
I’m always looking for different meal options because I get bored with the usual fare. Thank you for these ideas. The black bean Mexican bowl sounds yummy.

Thanks for sharing this! I always have such great plans, and usually do a weekly meal plan on Sunday. But then I change my mind, and often when I go into Pinterest to find the recipe I need, I get sidetracked to make something else 🙂 I need to try harder to stay on track

Great ideas! I love my smoothies but keeping them within the caloric amount I have is hard.
Thank you Terri. Hope these smoothie recipes help you in keeping your calorie intake in track. 🙂
Looks like a great meal plan. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Jenn.
Breakfast is where I need the most help meal planning. I’m just not a morning person and coming up with breakfast every day is so hard!
I can totally relate with you Jenny because coming up with breakfast ideas in the morning is quite difficult for most of us and so I decided to include some breakfast ideas in this meal plan. Hope this helps.
