Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic)

mpm2-1Menu Plan for the Week of February 22 – February 28

Dinner ideas: (some are recycled from last week; when I was sick I got lazy and didn’t make everything I’d planned on)



  • Whole wheat pitas with nut butter
  • Brown Rice Tortillas with cheddar
  • Salads
  • Grainy blends – oat bran, or whipped wheat berries



  • Oat bran or oatmeal with cinnamon, banana & nut butter
  • Kamut puffs, almond milk, and fruit
  • Miso Soup (1 cup boiling water, 2 teaspoons miso, handful of wakame)



More great menus can be found at Organizing Junkie!

I ate some Greek yogurt at midnight last night when the macrobiotic experiment was over… but I woke up bloated and full-feeling.  I think I might have to try staying away from my beloved yogurt for a while longer.

Enjoy the Oscars and have a great night.  What’s on your menu plan this week?  Anything new?

    Ooh, your menu looks good. We eat mostly vegetarian, so I always enjoy seeing other veggie menus for a bit of inspiration!

    Fabulous! I really need to start bookmarking some of your specific posts…maybe that will be a Spring Break option…start compiling recipes in a more organized format…

    Lotsa new stuff for me this week…I’ve got tempeh planned, as well as a kasha/parsnip dish. Hmm. I’m a little scared!

    Your week looks yummy!

    Your menu sounds so wonderful! I think we have really similar tastes and dietary choices. Kabocha fries – YUM. And I love jap chae. Your menu has totally inspired me!

    Menu looks awesome. I have been wanting to make vegan mac and cheese for a while…I have this powdered non-dairy cheese in the cupboard that I might try to use this week. I seem to recall you have made this before? Or am I making things up? Haha. Either way, any tips? 🙂

    P.S. I could definitely do Bay Area. I’ll see what the response is and maybe we can plan something!

    Your meal plan looks good. I wish I was that organized. What one fast meal would you recommend for me to try this to get out of my rut?

    I really want to try your pizza crust.

    Sorry about the yogurt bloat as I know you were really excited to eat some after no dairy for 2 weeks. 🙁

    Okay now … you’re making me REALLY hungry (and I’m a caterer)! Like the others, I love your menu. But let me say this – I really like your blog and have it bookmarked to refer to for future reference. Keep up the good work. I like your style!
