Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans: Week Eight
Happy weekend! Is it just me or is it starting to feel like fall?
The cool evenings we’ve been having making me want to curl up in my sweatpants with a cozy blanket and a bowl of warm soup. But we’re not there quite yet! We still have a few weeks left of summer which means there’s plenty of summery produce left that needs to be put to good use. Our meal plan this week does just that. There’s recipes for peppers, corn, and ripe juicy tomatoes.
I hope you find something you like and that you have a nice weekend!
