Joyful is the perfect plant based holiday Meal Plan (or for any time you’re feeling merry and bright). All Clean Food Dirty Girl Meal Plans are 100% whole food plant based and oil free.
The perfect plant based holiday Meal Plan
This Meal Plan features appetizers, soup, salad, and sides, along with a stunning main course, so you can create the special holiday menu of your dreams. You can use it to cook one fabulous feast or batch cook and eat the meals all week like usual. Either way, you’ll be feeling nourished, nurtured, and full of joy.
Are you going Gourmet this week? You’ll learn to make an appetizer worthy of the fanciest restaurant by stuffing mushrooms with Lemony Herb Quinoa, and the perfect blend of fresh basil and spices. Your guests (and you!) will be overjoyed as they nom away on these Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms served with a sensational Zesty Italian Tomato Sauce.
Wendy, our Meal Plan tester, had a smooth 3 hour batch when she tested the Gourmet plan. She reported an easy flow and she loved the variety of this week’s menu:
- I really enjoyed the Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms and the Savory Baked Cauliflower Mac & Cheese was SO amazing that I made it again for my son.
- The Creamy Celery Soup was delicious, but the accompanying Praline Ricotta Crostini was TO DIE FOR! I should have bought a second baguette, so I could make more.
- For the Gourmet plan, the first two meal nights take a little more time to put together, so make sure to give yourself a little extra time on those days. The rest of the week is easy peasy.
