For those who may have felt curious about a raw vegan meal plan after my last post on the subject, I thought a little visual aid might help you understand what it really means in practice. Sadly I can’t send tastes or smells through this blog, so pictures will have to do. A meal plan can involve anything from just one meal per day to all three meals and even snacks.
Here’s what two meals a day (lunch and dinner) for two weeks looks like:
The raw vegan menu for week 1:
Lunch 1: Raw sushi with a seaweed salad
Dinner 1: Peppers stuffed with sunflower seed paté and a side salad
Lunch 2: Moroccan cous cous salad
Dinner 2: Lasagna
Lunch 3: Dolmas (stuffed grape leaves) and crudités with lemon-dill sauce
Dinner 3: Pesto-stuffed mushrooms with a spinach salad.
Dessert (optional): apple pie
Lunch 4: Mexican “rice” salad with walnut taco meat and veggies.
Dinner 4: Pesto-filled raw ravioli in tomato sauce, with a side salad
Lunch 5: Marinated vegetable fajitas with crudités and cashew cheese dip.
Dinner 5: Pad thai
The raw vegan menu for week 2:
Lunch 1: “Not chicken” salad with tahini-lemon dressing
Dinner 1: Raw pizza
Lunch 2: Raw sushi with seaweed salad
Dinner 2: Sweet potato pasta with pesto sauce and a spinach salad
Lunch 3: Tabbouleh salad with crudités and cashew cheese dip
Dinner 3: Asian pesto noodles
Lunch 4: Vegetable wraps with satay sauce
Dinner 4: Chickpea (garbanzo) fritters with salad and a creamy coriander (cilantro) dressing
Lunch 5: Polenta with mushroom gravy and marinated spinach
Dinner 5: Lasagna
And the list goes on. When you order a meal plan, you can customise it to your specific needs and dietary requirements. So if you love raw lasagna and want that once a week, no problem. If you hate corn (mealies) or are allergic to turnips, no problem.
A raw vegan meal plan is a great way to eat healthy, delicious meals, without having to spend time in the kitchen (or even grocery shopping!). You can pick it up or have it delivered to your home or office. Think it over… your body will thank you.
