A 5-day weekly meal plan with simple and doable recipes that will make your cooking easy and stress-free!
Howdy folks! I am back with my weekly meal planners after a long back. I couldn’t share new meal planners after April. If you are following me on my Instagram, you might have already known about our move. We moved to New Jersey from California this July. Even though I was making a rough meal plan every week, I couldn’t sit and write a blog post, so I missed sharing it here. I hope this year, I can share regularly. Finger’s crossed!
Are you new to meal planning and prepping or looking for new ideas?
Check out all my previous meal planners. I have been sharing some meal planners for the past two years. I have shared over 30+ Indian vegetarian meal planners, and you can check them out all under the “meal planner” category. All meal planners are unique, and I am sure you can draw some inspiration.
This week’s meal planner!
Now, returning to this meal planner, I have used leftovers and kept the meals simple and heavily relying on the idli-dosa batter. It’s easy and definitely a feasible one. But you can customize it as per your schedule and preference.
You can swap rice with grains of your choice. Also, this is a veggie-loaded meal planner, so make sure you chop all the vegetables and keep them ready.
Please check the prep-work and individual recipe links below the meal planner. Without any further ado, here is the weekly meal planner with simple and doable recipes.
- Make sure you chop the veggies for fried rice, bisibelebath, cabbage curry, and sambar. You can chop and freeze them also.
