Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plan 12.17.2017

Annnd just like that, we’re just over a week away from Christmas. Did the holiday sneak up on anyone this year? I’ve been baking up all sorts of holiday cheer (Psst!: Check out the Chocolate-Dipped Molasses Cookies, Vegan Snickerdoodles, and Paleo Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies I posted this week). This weekend is a catch-up weekend, as I’ve been putting off recipe development for my cookbook in the name of Christmas cookies (#priorities), so cooking and yoga is all I have on the agenda. What are you getting yourselves into?

All sorts of variety on the menu this week, folks! This week, we have Spaghetti with Vegetarian Lentil Bolognese, One-Pot Vegetable Thai Red Curry, Roasted Butternut Squash Tostadas, Rustic Minestrone Soup, and Mediterranean Vegetable Quiche. Enjoy!
