Weekly Vegan Meal Plan, Week 3

A list of our favorite recipes for this week’s vegan meal plan. As a meal prepper, I love planning out healthy meals at the start of each week.  Simple, everyday, plant-based recipes you’ll love!  This week is the third week of January,  so here are some fantastic recipes we have coming up.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner inspiration for your table!  For Veganuary and beyond 🙂

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 weekend brunch, 2 weekly lunches, 4 dinners, and one bread.  Batch cooking is a lifesaver,  so I make multiple portions of everything and prep them out for the week.  Honestly, I don’t 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, this year will be 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 breakkies that we can just heat and eat. Click the links below the images to see the full recipes!

Weekday Vegan Work or School Lunches

Lunches for us are almost always soups – but the occasional sandwich, wrap, or salad will get thrown in the rotation. I cook 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!

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 dinners per week, and we enjoy them for a few nights in a row.
