A special note from our meal plan developer, AKA Wizard Tamie:
“This plan features all 1970s classic family meals—things mom would have made for dinner in the 70s, but with our plant based spin on them. Tuna on Toast was a biggie back then, especially for families on a budget. It was my mother-in-law’s go-to Friday dinner when my husband was a kid. Our version is still budget-friendly, and it passed the hubby taste test!”

Here’s the gourmet menu this week
