my {meal} plan for the week + a giveaway!!

Welcome again Monday! And welcome to my last week of school before a week off (aka reading week)!! So, I'm really starting to love meal planning again…go figure. Torturous to get back into a routine, but once you're in it, you're laughing. Since I was super duper prepared this week, I wanted to show you what meals I have lined up for the week!

We're doing our grocery shopping today (my designated day since Tyler has it off work). I'm such a dork because it's one of my favourite things to do. I seriously need to get a life.

So what are we eating?

Meals for the week:

  • homemade pizzas with veggies and daiya cheese
  • chili + vegan sour cream (via OSG)
  • broccoli cashew teriyaki tofu stir-fry (via Dreena)
  • BLTs + kale salad or chips
  • homemade Chipotle burrito bowls
  • (lentil sloppy joes) <--may or may not happen

I'm only attempting one new recipe this week (the chili), because I've gone big the past few weeks in a row. I might start aiming for 2-3 new recipes a week, if some peak my attention. I've really only been grabbing new ones out of my vegan cookbook, which is why I've been trying so much lately. That book is on fire and I can't put it down!

Now onto something that might peak YOUR interest: a giveaway!!! (So, hop on the giveaway train, because I hope to do a few this year (I'm trying to aim for at least 5!!), because I love you guys!)
