Veganuary Meal Plan: Week 2
You’ve made it to week 2 — nice one! To celebrate, let’s get some inspiration to keep up the winning streak and make sure you continue to enjoy cooking and eating this week. Keep reading for some simple and delicious recipes to power you through every meal, as well as our must-have swaps for when craving strikes.
If you’re craving cheese…
Cheese can often be the hardest break up, but the good news is that there are loads of ways to get your cheese fix, the vegan way. First off, to get the low down on the world of plant-based cheeses, head to this vegan cheese guide. If you’re missing your usual toastie, follow our recipe below for a roasted pumpkin toastie that’s slightly sweet, very savoury and very melty. If it’s a hard-core cheese fix you’re after, follow our recipe below for an extremely creamy and cheesy vegan mac and cheese or pop an allplants mac and ‘cheese’ into your next box for a hands-off, cheesy and comforting dinner.
If your coffee or tea just isn’t tasting the same…
We’ve got you covered. This guide to the best vegan milks — which ranks plant-based milks based on value, taste and how easy they are to get your hands on — can help you navigate all of the options out there. A good general tip is to look for barista-style plant-based milks, as they have a higher fat content which holds up in hot liquids as well as any dairy milk out there.
Here are some easy, unfussy and delicious recipes to see you through the next week, from breakfast and onto lunch and dinner. The dinner ideas here are specifically chosen to make great leftovers, so lunch can be ready in a couple of minutes, whether you need to bring something to the office or need a quick working from home lunch.
