Breakfast: Avocado Toast 

Avocado toast is a vegan's playground. Add different topping variations like onions, tomatoes, scrambled Just Eggs or chopped up almonds to switch up your breakfast.

Lunch: Smoky Bean Chili

Beans are a healthy source of vegan protein and will make you feel full throughout your day. Serve with a side of lime wedges to add citrus flavor and a side plate of chips for delicious crunch.

Snack 1: Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

These crunchy snacks are high in protein and the healthier version of our favorite packaged snack, Hippeas. Serve them as a bar snack or as hors d'oeuvres at your cocktail party.

Dinner: Roasted Vegetable Orzo

This dish is a Mediterranean classic with a vegan twist. Add spices for more flavor like dill and oregano.

Side note: Orzo is a form of pasta and is not gluten-free. Use quinoa or wild rice as a GF substitute and add vegetables to receive healthy fibers and carbohydrates.

Snack 2: Stovetop Popcorn

Good news! You're probably eating popcorn already and its scheduled into your meal plan. Add protein foods like Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, or any of your favorite nuts into the mix.
