I’m back with another free meal plan, this time a seven-day Vegan meal plan that is the opposite of plan or salad heavy. While I love a good lemon arugula salad, vegans don’t just eat leafy greens!
Instead, this free meal plan will hopefully open your eyes to the world of colorful, bright flavors as well as rich and filling recipes made entirely of plants.
I’m also offering a few non-smoothie breakfast recipes to help you incorporate even more tasty options to your morning routine. I like to change it up every now and again, and I bet you do too!

While most of my recipes are considered vegan, I do incorporate some vegetarian ingredients at times (namely, eggs and honey). For this plan, I chose recipes that are specifically vegan with no alterations needed. Plant-based living looks different for everyone. If you’re looking to incorporate more plants into your diet then this free digital guide is a great place to start!

Vegan Meal Plan FAQs
If you are following a strictly vegan diet, ensure you’re getting enough protein (plants are full of protein!) as well as eat a variety of plants. Different colored plants provide different nutrients. Stick to as many whole foods as you can vs processed options, as these will give you the most nutrition.
Yes. However, there is so much more that goes into losing weight than just what you feed yourself. If you want to get healthier in terms of sleep quality, energy, weight and more then incorporating more plants is definitely the way to go. Yet just because someone is ‘vegan’ doesn’t mean they are eating healthy, whole foods. So focus on variety, real food vs processed food, and eating protein-rich foods that will help you feel full and ready to take on each day.
You’ll see in my free vegan meal plan that there are no salads! Instead, I’m bringing you delicious smoothies, protein and healthy fat-powered snacks and filling dinners that are richly delicious and full of colorful, beautiful plants. Go with variety, whole food, and options that have a balanced amount of protein, healthy fats and carbs to ensure your body gets what it needs to feel and perform at its best.

First thank you so much for the possibility of actually having an entire week of vegan meals. I am not vegan but want to give this a try so that I can stop eating fast food -at least for one week. Now – please help me with a dilemma I often face when shopping for recipes. As a family of one – there seems to be so much waste – what do I do with what will be left of things I’ll have to buy when I will only be using one teaspoon of a jar – or half a can of – something? I will try to go to stores that sell in bulk – which in themselves are expensive – but what do I do with the leftovers?
Hey there Portia,
Good for you for trying to swap out some fast food meals for plant-based alternatives. You’re going to love it!
I understand the desire to manage food waste and your expenses when following such a robust meal plan for one. Here’s a few ideas that might help!
1. I would consider spreading the seven day meal plan over 2 or 3 weeks in order to consume the leftovers yourself, and plan your shopping accordingly. (BONUS: you get to take a night or two off of cooking!)
2. You could alternatively use half measurements for the recipes, so that you don’t have too many leftovers to deal with.
3. When you start to cook more plant-based meals, it can seem like a lot at first to purchase certain spices, condiments, and pantry items that may be new to you. But it really is an investment in flavor and your health.
4. When you have an abundance of fresh items, like vegetables and fruits, you can freeze them and incorporate them in smoothies, stir-fries, or soups later on.
You’re gonna to do great!
