Vegan Family Menu Plan May 18-22

I have been basically the worst eater during quarantine. As a result I just haven't felt the best. While I don't identify or subscribe to any one diet type, and typically don't eliminate any certain foods (aside from beef and pork which I'm intolerant to), I do feel my best and most energized when I do eat plant based meals.

In 2019 I went vegan for six weeks and felt amazing. I'm assuming life got in the way or someone waved ice cream in my face and it went downhill from there? Anyways, I've eaten far too few fruits and veggies during quarantine thus far and am just doing a little vegan reset week to get a little pep in my step, and hopefully continue the trend of incorporating more healthy foods into my diet again. (I'm seriously the worst eater, anyone else relate?) 

If you're in the market for five vegan kid friendly dinner ideas this week, I've got you covered. Since I know people will ask, I plan on eating oatmeal for all my breakfasts (with diced apple, peanut butter, chia seeds, and frozen blueberries), and refried beans quesadillas for my lunch each day. The kids typically eat cereal for breakfast, and we pick up lunches from the school in the afternoon for them. These dinners listed below will be eaten by the entire family.

Vegan Chili Cheese Tater Tots by Cadry's Kitchen: This will be an easy weeknight meal. We plan on simplifying the dinner by using canned vegetarian chili instead of making it from scratch, and then bringing the rest of the ingredients together for an easy kid friendly dinner.

Mango Lentil Dahl by Fried Dandelions: We love Indian in our house and knew I had to try this recipe the second I saw it. We plan on simplifying it a bit by using organic canned red lentils we bought at Walmart, along with a can of diced mango! It will make dinner time a lot easier!

Vegan Potato Carrot Mac n Cheese by The Right on Mom: I've been wanting to try a vegan mac n cheese recipe for ages. This will be our first time cooking with nutritional yeast as well. I'll definitely have to report back and let you know how our kids did with this! Planning on serving with a side of broccoli!

Oven Baked Taquitos by Nora Cooks: This is a pretty normal meal for our house, although I do plan on making a vegan cashew sour cream to dip them in. Another first that I'm excited to try!

Baked Tofu Buddha Bowl by Glue and Glitter: My kids actually really like tofu, so I'm not too worried about this meal. We've had Buddha bowls in the past and as long as I put all the kids food separately on the plate and not touching they'll eat it with no problems ;) 

Does your family have any plant based meals that you love? I'd love to hear about them in the comments. Be sure to follow along on Instagram @thehappyflammily to see how these meals turn out for us this week!
