Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic)

4 days until the cruise!

This week’s menu planning was easy – we’re going on a cruise that begins Friday, and we’re heading to LA on Thursday.  I forgot that vacationing means using up produce, so I have to eat about a bajillion pounds of fruit this week.


Menu for the Week of March 22 – March 28


dinner – okonomiyaki (Japanese fritatta – eggs, cabbage, leeks mainly)

dessert“carb watch” pitas with peanut butter OR fruit


dinner – sweet & sour stir-fry to use up veggies & kabocha

dessert – fruit!


dinner – sushi (probably?) with a former roommate & Bobby

dessert – fruit!


dinner – either eating out or using up veggies in a stir-fry, depending on what is left

dessert – fruit!


dinner & dessert – restaurant in LA (to be determined)

Friday & Saturday – cruise food!

Lunches – pitas, peanut butter, kabocha, lots of veggies, & hummus

Breakfasts – miso soup, oats, pitas, fruit (so much to use up!), leftover okonomiyaki

    We have many similar ingredients and meals, I love it! Not surprising though really if you think about it.

    My goal this week is to start doing more yoga. Wish me luck!

    That’s probably the best thing you’d HAVE to do – eat fruit! Not a bad task 🙂

    Oh wow, you are going to have such a wonderful time on your cruise…especially now that you’ve got the last couple of days planned out, nothing to worry about but eating LOTS of fruits and veggies before you leave 😉

    Exciting about your cruise! Those pitas look very delish. I love fluffy carbs.
    I always end up having to eat tons of produce before a trip too. I desperately need to go acquire more of it now though, because I came home to a very empty refrigerator!
