Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian)

This weekend has been very relaxing.  Yesterday we woke up late, lounged around, went for a long walk (about 4 miles or so), got massages (intense deep tissue), and met up with a friend for dinner at Homma’s Brown Rice Sushi (Palo Alto, CA).

Today I woke up early, but lounged around until I walked to the farmers’ market and back.

Here’s what I have planned for the week…


Menu for the Week of April 05 – April 11

Sunday night – okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake).  inspiration from here, but nothing like that recipe at all.  to be posted soon.


  • return to Homma’s Brown Rice Sushi
  • stuffed portobello mushrooms & tomato-ey pasta (both inspired by Naturally Thin)
  • Vietnamese – Pho Vi Hoa (see here and here)
  • eating out with cousins (don’t know where yet; saw them at the farmers’ market this morning!)
  • stir-fries to use up extra veggies


  • scrambles/omelettes with fresh veggies & toast
  • tuna sandwiches & salad
  • sushi & salad
  • Chipotle with Bobby


  • fruit, yogurt, & granola/cereal parfaits
  • scrambles/omelettes & toast
  • toast with butter & jelly, fresh fruit
  • french toast

Desserts – trying for fruit this week, as well as faux cheesecake and these cookies that were on sale at whole foods.

Happy New Week!  Is anything exciting happening for you?

  1. i don’t think I can follow a vegan diet as well. I trie to cut out diary, but I missed Greek yogurt too much and my craving of salmon just makes me cranky. @_@ Everything in moderation, right? 🙂 You only live once.

  2. Your menu looks sooo good!
    I can’t wait to see more, and I am happier incorporating everything in moderation. But some people are so awesome at being creative within limitations!

  3. great menu plan and relaxing weekend! I’m glad you enjoyed, mine was nice too!
    seafood and dairy are in my fav food lists…I could never live without them! 🙂 I got octopus today!!! I’m really looking forward to try to make it taste nice as that $70 plate I had in BA. 😀 Do you know any good recipe for it?

  4. Sounds like you have some good eats ahead! No major plans for me except a…err…”interesting” week of work.

  5. I wish I could find some good brown rice sushi around here… but our sushi restaurants haven’t caught on yet. 🙁 Enjoy yours! The rest of your menu sounds delicious, too!

  6. YUmmmy options! I love that going back to the restaurant is first thing 😀 Chelsea handler keeps talking about the cruise on her show, haha and I think of u!

  7. Stuffed portobellas and pasta, oh my! Yummo!
    I somehow forgot about your cruise and the chance to guest post, ooooops…..

  8. Okay, I’m gonna check up on your blog every single day now, esp to read about that OKONOMIYAKI! I can’t believe someone’s actually gonna make it who is not Asian! was that your boyfriend’s suggestion? either way, I can’t wait! oknomiyaki has got to be one of my most fav foods ever but I NEVER find them in the japanese restaurants in america.
    btw, thank you, thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. that is the most beautiful thing anyone has ever said to me and really made my day. 🙂

  9. Everything sounds delicious! I will have to check out that brown rice sushi place in Palo Alto- I didn’t realize they did dinner as well as lunch. (I live in Sunnyvale)

    very cool that you are making okonomiyaki- I love it too. I have a pescatarian wheat- free recipe for it on my blog I thought you might enjoy:

    At this point I was posting a few pesc recipes but now I only post vegetarian recipes, although I am an occasional pescatarian in practice. Japanese food is my weakness!

    Your menu sounds so good- I’ll have to come back!
