A part of my Veganuary Challenge I have planned my meals for the whole month in advance. Whilst this may seem a little excessive I have found it vital to ensure I am able to stick to the challenge. Whilst I may only be doing the challenge for 5 days a week I will write this menu plan for the whole 7 days.

Batch Cooking

Most of the breakfasts and lunches are batch cooking recipes; such as soups and over night oats. Because these keep for a few days in the fridge or can be frozen I find a lot of the breakfasts and lunches are repetitive throughout the week. I don’t mind this at all, as long as I like what I am eating, and have been mindful that they need to be nutritious if they are going to be consumed for a few days in a row. This will ensure I am getting a well balanced diet regardless of it being vegan.

Adjustments

This plan is for 1 person with the relevant recipes divided into the portions I have found it makes or for how long it keeps for. If there are more people eating the food then see what you think you would need to do with the recipes.

Breakfast

Monday to Thursday

Over Night Oats With Rhubarb Compote by Lauren Carris Cooks.

Vegan Menu Plan. As part of Veganuary I thought it would be helpful to share the menu plan of vegan food I have made for myself.

(My picture is not brilliant for this meal and doesn’t do the oats justice at all. Please check out the recipe I linked as Laurens Oats look amazing and they really do taste as good as they look.)

 

Friday to Sunday

Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes with a Banana and Maple Syrup

If you don’t like/have maple syrup then use agave syrup instead… remember honey is not vegan.

Vegan Menu Plan. As part of Veganuary I thought it would be helpful to share the menu plan of vegan food I have made for myself.

Lunch

Monday to Friday

Vegetable Tortilla Stew from Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook ‘Cravings

To make this vegan I didn’t add the cheese for serving, and used water instead of chicken stock.

Saturday to Sunday

Curried Butternut Squash Soup by Minimalist Baker.

Dinner

Monday

Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos by This Savoury Vegan

Tuesday

Smokey Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers by Wallflower Kitchen

Wednesday

Sesame Ginger Noodles by Chrissey Teigen. These are not strictly vegan so I didn’t add the chicken and that was the only adjustment needed (be sure to use eggless pasta. Most dried pasta is vegan).

Thursday

Coconut Curry Ramen Noodles with Marinated Mushrooms by Lauren Carris Cooks

(These were seriously delicious (even the girls thought so) so I had to include a proper photo taken by Lauren).

Friday

Spiced Sweet Potato Stew by Deliciously Ella

Saturday

Vegan Gyros by Lazy Cat Kitchen (make a day ahead)

Sunday

Mango Curry and Tofu by Lauren Carris Cooks

I actually swapped the tofu with potato because no matter how hard I try I just don’t like tofu. Seriously…. I’ve tried everything!

Other Useful Links For This Week

The Cauliflower Taco recipe asks for a vegan ranch dressing. I found this very hard to source so instead I search for a recipe to make me own.

    Such a varied list of food! It’s amazing how diverse and yummy vegan food is. We try to do a vegan meal at least once a week so thanks for the inspiration. X #thursdayteam

      You are welcome. I hope there are a few things you would like to try… there will be 3 other menu plans once I am done. I started with 1-2 meals a week so I knew I could manage a whole month x

    Well timed that I spotted this. I’m eating vegan banana bread for breakfast. I’m not a big meat eater but I can over indulge on dairy and it’s not great for me. Whether you choose to eat less or no dairy and meat on ethical or health grounds, or environmental reasons, I’ve no doubt you could find something here. We’ve at least one vegan meal a weak – usually a vegetable curry or tagine. I’m definitely going to try the pancakes! #ThursdayTeam

      Vegan banana bread sounds lovely. I hope you enjoy the pancakes. I am missing dairy but not meat, but dairy was also my huge weakness. x

    I am tempted — and this is coming from a committed carnivore!

      Hehe! My husband considers himself a committed carnivore but some of these meals he absolutely loves… He would never convert full time, but then again nor would I. One month is enough.

    I seriously love overnight oats. It’s one of my favorite breakfast meals. I’m gonna have to try out that ramen bowl recipe. That looks incredible.

      I am new to the over night oats party and I feel I have been really missing out. The ramen really was incredible! Even the kids ate it

  5. January 11, 2018 / 3:20 pm

    I went vegetarian for a while and enjoyed that. Vegan has always sounded to be such a far stretch from my regular diet, but some of these sound absolutely delicious! I may just have to try a few!

      I used to think that too so I did a lot of meal research before I did this. I didn’t want to feel like I was lacking any nutrients… So far I feel better than I have done in months. Going completely vegan is a lot but the occasional meal is manageable and I think you would be pleasantly surprised x

    Love these recipes, think I’m going to have to try the pancakes! #ThursdayTeam

    How yummy the coconut curry looks! I have been making overnight oats all week, as its such a time saver in the morning! x #thursdayteam

      No I hate tofu too. I always replace it

    I’ve never considered going vegan but these dishes sound lovely. I’ve just started eating cauliflower so the possibilities have opened up now!

      I started by just making the odd meal over the last couple of years. Then I heard about Veganuary so I thought I would give it a go.

  12. January 29, 2018 / 1:01 pm

    I love agave syrup on pancakes! We have been discussing about eating a few vegan meals a week to help balance our diet. I love some of these recipes and completely agree… meal planning definitely makes things easier when it comes to food.

      I am in my final week and I have loved it. I am starting to want some meat and dairy now though. I think a couple of meals a week would be perfectly manageable and it really would balance the diet.

  13. January 29, 2018 / 5:56 pm

    I’d find it difficult to be vegetarian let alone vegan but you would never know these recipes were vegan at all. It must be hard to find a variety, too. Love the sound (and look) of the ramen dish, but unfortunately, there’s something about overnight oats that I don’t like (I wish I did – what a healthy dish!).

      I never thought I would do it (and would be unlikely to do it permanently) but I started with a meal a week and built up to a point where I knew I could do veganuary. I have found loads of meals that you would never suspect to be vegan. I have been very impressed.

  14. January 30, 2018 / 1:21 am

    As a vegetarian I really appreciate your meal plan as I am incorporating more vegan food into my diet. The curried butternut squash soup sounds lovely!

      It was lovely. I think as a vegetarian already you definitely wouldn’t struggle to add a couple of vegan meals to you diet.

  15. January 30, 2018 / 9:01 am

    Batch cooking is 100% the way forward and as long as you’re having something nice it doesn’t matter if it’s repetitive x

      No exactly… As I have found. And I really don’t mind for breakfast or lunch.

      They really were. I will be adding them to our usual weekly meals I think.

  16. January 30, 2018 / 2:20 pm

    These meals all sound delicious! I have never even considered eating vegan meals but I think I will start adding some of these into our weekly meal plans, it’s good to try new foods and they sound really nutritious too xx
