7-Day Vegetarian Meal Plan

Planning your meals for the week has never been easier with these vegetarian recipes!

By: Natalie Terchek, Editor, FaveHealthyRecipes.com
7-Day Vegetarian Meal Plan

A wise amphibian named Kermit the Frog once said "It's not easy being green." Kermit raises a valid point – it's very difficult to find easy vegetarian recipes that the whole family will enjoy, especially if you're the only non-meat eater in your household. That's why we created a 7-Day Vegetarian Meal Plan to help you think of ideas. We've included delicious and healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. You can mix and match these options any way you'd like. These nutritious meals are relatively simple to prepare and can be enjoyed all year long. Many of them are also kid-friendly, so if you're looking for a well-balanced meal to encourage your children to eat their veggies, this vegetarian meal plan has some great options. We've even included a few snack recipes, so you won't get hungry in between meals.

We've made sure to feature a wide variety of easy vegetarian recipes, as well as suggestions for side dishes for each meal. No matter what kind of food you're craving, there should be at least one dish that will satisfy your appetite. Many of these recipes are lighter versions of classic dishes, yet they're still just as filling and delicious as their original versions. Think of this healthy meal plan for vegetarians as a guilt-free way to enjoy some of your favorite foods. Even if you're not a vegetarian, you're bound to enjoy these tasty recipes.

7-Day Vegetarian Meal Plan: How to Make It Work for You

If you're stuck in a rut when it comes to cooking, then using a meal plan is a great way to shake things up a bit in your household. In addition, planning your meals in advance will reduce the need to make last-minute trips to the grocery store or order delivery for dinner.

1. Get cooking: You already know what's on the menu for the week, so why not plan ahead and make some of the dishes in advance? Let your stovetop and kitchen appliances do double-duty; for example, you can get started on tomorrow's breakfast recipe while cooking dinner for tonight.

2. Mix it up: This meal plan is hardly set in stone, so feel free to mix things up a bit! If you feel like having breakfast for dinner or want to duplicate a snack throughout the week, then go for it. You can adjust the meal plan to fit what you're craving — and what will fit your schedule. 

3. Use different types of side dishes: You will find a number of suggestions for side dishes in this meal plan. You can also adjust or add ideas as needed while making it as easy as you'd like. For example, a sheet pan of roasted vegetables can be a filling and nutritious side dish.

4. Encourage your family to get on board: If you're cooking for your entire household, then getting everyone on board with meal planning is a crucial step, and this is especially true if your family does not usually eat vegetarian meals. Many of the recipes above can be adjusted to fit your family's tastes and preferences, so you can create meals just the way you like them. In addition, consider easing into this type of meal planning by introducing just a handful of recipes per week.
