With over 200 Meal Plans in Clean Food Dirty Girl’s digital classroom, it’s hard to pick which one to batch first! Here are some of our favorite plant based Meal Plans and recipes from our subscription

Our plant based Meal Plans are based on batch cooking. This is when you set aside roughly 2–4 hours each week to do the majority of your cooking. 

Once you have your batching done, you can easily throw together meals throughout the week without having to cook everything from scratch each night. Our classroom allows you to decide which Meal Plan you want to make, how many portions of each meal you want, and everything is calculated for you, from the grocery list and prep section to the batching recipes and nightly meal instructions. 

When you sign up for our subscription, you get instant access to our entire library of over 200 Meal Plans. As a subscriber, you can make as many past meal plans as you like. Whatever you choose will help you eat more plants in the most delicious way. 

Here are six of our favorite plant based Meal Plans that constantly get rave reviews:

Now let’s talk about individual recipes and meals. When you sign up for the Meal Plan subscription, not only do you get all of our past Meal Plans, you also get access to our Recipe Vault which contains all of the individual recipes from our Meal Plans. There are over 2,000 recipes in our Vault that you won’t find anywhere else. 

With so many to choose from, you might wonder what recipes to make first! Here are some suggestions that our community has declared the most scrumptious of the scrumptious. 

Keep in mind that because our Meal Plans are based around batch cooking, some of these meals require several components. For example: 

Making a whole food plant based lasagna from scratch requires several components to be made before you put it together; a red sauce, a cheesy sauce, and a yummy veggie filling. 

If you were following one of our Meal Plans, we would have you batch cook a bunch of red sauce, a bunch of cheesy sauce, and a big batch of veggie filling on your batch day, and have you use those components in several recipes and meals throughout the week, including the lasagna. 

If you wanted to cook a single lasagna from our Recipe Vault, you would still need to make all the components, but you would be making them to use in just one recipe. This is why batch cooking is so awesome. You make big batches of stuff and use it often so you cook less during the week. 

That said, a lot of people who subscribe to our Meal Plans don’t batch cook, they make individual recipes when they want them. You can totally do this too, just keep in mind some recipes are a little more work when you’re not batch cooking. 

Here are some of our community’s most favorite plant based recipes from our Recipe Vault. We are also giving you the name of the Meal Plan each one debuted in. And, if you’re already a subscriber, each link takes you directly to that recipe in your classroom where you can easily add it to “my cook list” for later!

    I’ve been a subscriber for several years. I used to batch but rarely do anymore because it doesn’t fit my lifestyle.
    However, I think CFDG recipes are some of the best for WFPB no oil eating! I so appreciate you highlighting beloved recipes that I can try. Helping subscribers who don’t batch hone in on the best recipes is really appreciated. I plan to make several of these in the next couple of weeks. Thanks.

    • Team Dirty - Steph on September 12, 2021 at 6:08 pm

      We’re so happy that you like the post! May you find lots of new favorites here!
