Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans: Week Twenty Five
Happy New Years Eve! I’m popping in with the first healthy meal plan for 2017, just in case you need a little inspiration. All of the options this week are entirely plant-based and utterly delicious. I hope you find something you like and that you have a wonderful new year!!

Prep Ahead Tip: The vegetables can be chopped in advance and stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Recipe is vegan and gluten-free.
Swiss Chard Mushroom Enchiladas from Making Thyme for Health
Prep Ahead Tip: You can prep the enchiladas on Sunday then add the sauce and bake. Or you can chop the vegetables up to 2 days in advance.

I love these and the prep tips are great but honestly all those groceries for one week is quite expensive :( Would love if you could do one for people on a budget sometime!
I really appreciate the feedback, Sarah! It’s tricky to calculate and plan for cost when I am collaborating with 4 other bloggers but I will definitely take that into account and try to come up with a solution on my own.
Until then you might try replacing a few recipes per week with cheaper options that you enjoy. For us that means salad and frozen pizza or some kind of meatless protein (I like using Quorn cutlets) with a side of roasted broccoli and potatoes. I’ll do my best to brainstorm budget friendly recipes in the meantime! :)
Thank you for getting back to me on this! And thanks for the suggestions!
I just reciently decided to become a vegetarian and this is so helpful! Thank you soooo much!!
Thank you, Elizabeth! I’m so glad you find them useful. :)
