A little bit of meal planning, I’ve found, helps make my time in the kitchen go so much more smoothly. I’ve made a list here of a week’s worth of meals so that you can get some new ideas for what you might want to eat. If you’d like some more details on meal planning, check out my article, “Beginner’s Guide to Easy Plant-Based Vegan Meal Planning.”
(And if you’re the spontaneous type and the thought of planning makes you want to run for the hills, that’s fine, too! Whatever works for you is what’s best.)
If you’re just starting to make fruits and vegetables a bigger part of your life, hopefully this week-long list will get you going. Making dishes that can be used as leftovers also helps cut down on time in the kitchen and makes it easier to stay plant-based! And if you join my email list you’ll receive my free Weekly Meal Planner.
Here you go – this is the real food I ate (give or take a little chocolate – my favorite treat) for one week. I’ve linked to the posted recipes. Read on!

So there you have it, one week of what I ate on a plant-based diet. Are you finding it difficult to figure out what to eat? I’d love to hear what you like to eat on a plant-based diet. Let me know in the comments below.
