December 28th-January 2nd Meal Plan

Meal Plan And Recipes For The Week

I’m going out of town for the new year so this week’s plan will be much shorter than usual.

Dinners

1.Zucchini Noodle Carbonara with tempeh bacon

I love carbonara, its so comforting and delicious. I hate that I can only eat a little because it’s so high in calories so I decided to use my Veggetti to make it so I can eat a bigger portion!

2.Vegan Cholent

Cholent is a traditional Jewish stew. I like to make it from a recipe from the book: Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. I make mine a little different but this cookbook is great, especially if you are unfamiliar or new to vegan cooking.

3. Vegetable Peanut Sauce Noodles

I love cold peanut noodles! I’m excited to make them with vegetable noodles.

4.Lentil and Amaranth Patties with Baked Sweet Potato Fries with an Avocado Dipping Sauce

I saw the recipe for lentil and amaranth patties on Pinterest. I’ve had a jar of amaranth in my cupboard for weeks that I’ve been meaning to use. Amaranth is an ancient grain that was a staple food of the Aztecs.
