The spring meal plan contains a healthy strawberry oat breakfast, a creamy chocolate avocado smoothie (tastes like pudding!), and 7 delicious and nutritious dinner recipes that can be used for lunch the next day. It provides a couple of salad recipes that you can also prep ahead of time for easy to-go lunches.
Vegan Spring Meal Plan

Spring Meals For Lunch
You can pick one or two of the salads below and make enough for the whole week. Store them in a meal prep container up to 5 days in your fridge and easily take them to go.
The other option is to cook your dinner each night and store the leftovers for lunch the next day. If you don’t have the option to warm up your food at work or school, simply heat it thoroughly in the morning, then store in a large thermos and take it to go. That way it will stay warm until lunch.
If you are counting calories, make sure to split each meal evenly into the 4 servings.
Vegan Spring Dinner Ideas:
Each dinner makes 4 servings. My husband and I usually eat one serving each at night and the other two servings the next day for lunch. If you are only one person, simply split the recipe in half or cook the full recipe and eat the other 2 servings later in the week. You can also eat two serving sizes at once if you need more calories.
All dinner recipes can be cooked in under 30 minutes. Most of these dinners can be prepped on the weekend and stored in food containers up to 5 days.
