A list of simple healthy meal ideas in this weekly vegan meal planning recipes. Helping you prep healthy meals for your family’s busy weeks.  These are simple, everyday, plant-based recipes you’ll love!  For this third second week of March we have some fantastic recipes like chickpea breakfast sandwiches, lentil pasta, mason jar ramen soup, vegan fudge, and our favorite triple olive hummus!

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!

Easy Tips for 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.

Meal Prep Breakfasts

I start by preparing 2 different breakfasts with 5 portions each. I divide the portions into individual containers (for overnight oatmeal) or bags (for muffins or oatmeal bars) so they are ready to go. Just heat and eat, and you have a week of meal prepped breakfasts ready.

Meal Prep Work from Home Lunches!

Similarly, I cook 2 large batches of my lunch recipes for that week.  Lunches are usually soups, so I divide them into individual meal prep containers or mason jars. I line them up in the refrigerator, so we can heat and eat during our busy work weeks!

 Batch Cook Those Dinners

I always cook more than 1 portion of food for my family for the week. That way we can enjoy a meal one night, and reheat leftovers the next day!  I try to cook dinner 3 times a week, so I prep as much as I can on the weekend, but keep in mind things like salads which are better made fresh.

Do You Just Spend All Your Time Cooking?

No, haha! I actually spend way less time cooking if I prep as much as possible on the weekend. I utilize fresh ingredients when I can, and head to the pantry for everything else. That way, we have homemade meals 3 times a day, with very little cooking time on my end. It probably takes me 3 hours total to cook 3 meals a day, for 2 people, 7 days a week!

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.
