Weekly Vegan Meal Plan, Week 8

A list of nutritious and good-for-you recipes in this week’s vegan meal plan. Helping you plan out healthy meals for your family’s busy weeks.  These are simple, everyday, plant-based recipes you’ll love!  For this last full week of February we have some fantastic recipes like olive hummus, pesto chickpea sandwiches, sweet potato curry, and oat milk rice pudding!

I wanted to try something fun this year, so I decided to make a  list of recipes for a weekly vegan meal plan everyone can enjoy.  These are recipes that we eat regularly on the homestead, and are simple and totally recreatable for cooks of any skill level. Check out all of my Weekly Vegan Meal Plans here!

How To Do Plant-Based Meal Prep!

I choose 2 breakfasts for the week, 1 snack, 2 weekly lunches, 4 dinners, and 1 dessert.  Batch cooking is a lifesaver,  so I make multiple portions of everything and prep them out for the week.  I never get tired of eating the same thing for lunch every day because I switch up the flavors each week.  If you like variety, then you can alter between recipes.  Because we work Monday-Friday 9-5 schedules, Sunday is the best meal prep day for us.  But choose whatever day works best for you.

Honestly, the past year has been all about the pantry staple ingredients for us. Since COVID has impacted our grocery shopping frequency, I’ve been building lots of fresh healthy meals from what we already have on hand.  You can read through my Top 125 Vegan Pantry Staple Ingredients & Recipes that I stock my pantry with.  There are some surprising items on there… especially the proteins!

Weekly Vegan Breakfast Recipes

I like prepping one breakfast for me, and one for my husband.  I try to prep about 5 servings of each so we have ready-made brekkies that we can just heat and eat. I have a whole section of The Herbeevore where you can find simple healthy breakfast recipes.  Click the links below the images to see this week’s full recipes!  These amazing sweet or savory breakfasts are great for the whole family. Some can even be enjoyed on-the-go for a quick bite if you are running out the door to school or the office.

Weekday Vegan Work or School Lunches

Lunches for us are usually soups – but the occasional sandwich, wrap, or salad gets thrown in the rotation. I normally like cooking 2 large pots of soup on Sunday nights and divide them into jars for the week.  That way, when noon rolls around we can just heat + eat!  You can also check out my full collection of lunch recipes here.  The summer months are full of lunches made with fresh produce from the garden, and the winters we use a lot of pantry staple ingredients for satisfying flavors.

Easy Vegan Weeknight Dinners

Dinners for us rotate around some great pantry staple ingredients: rice, pastas, grains, and potatoes.  I try to mix it up with the carb, protein, and vegetable selections every week.  I usually make 3 or 4 different plant-based dinners per week, and we enjoy them for a few nights in a row. Below is what is on our menu for this week, but if you are looking to browse through some other dinner options, click here for all my dinner recipes. I love mixing up the ingredients each night, and also the cuisines!  We love cycling through some great vegan Italian pastas, Indian curries, Asian baked tofu and stir fries, and good ol’ potatoes.
