Vegan meal planning to share?

I am ready to make the plunge to vegan (already dairy free) and want to start while DH is traveling.

Does anyone have a vegan meal plan (weekly, monthly, whatever) they would be willing to share? Or, a great blog/website with some? I want to make sure I include enough variety that my kids don't really figure out what I am doing! They are used to me trying to new recipes all the time but would catch on quick if the menu didn't seem to change much! Stretching leftovers into additional meals would be a great timesaver as well.

Hold your mouse over Recipeas, then click on Pealightful Plans
This blogger had a book come out a few months ago, I bought it and it is my lifesaver. I would say a huge chuck of the meals I make are from her website or book. And she is hilarious also.

I second Peas and Thank You--love her cookbook and blog

I will add my list later--I have tons of resources, but alas my kiddos are begging for breakfast

Re: Vegan meal planning to share?

I don't exactly have meal planning resources, but I will give you a few links to a few tried and true sites with recipes that are kiddo friendly. My kids have been veg from birth, but it still takes a little trial and error to find out what they really like. Oh and if they don't like it and you serve it enough times they tend to eat it anyway

Not sure what is in your vegan cook book library, but I will list a few of my faves that I use often (sorry if this is redundant):

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20 *Dreena Burton's recipes are very kid friendly

Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz *buy ANY of her cookbooks and you will not be sorry. I own them all

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/re.../dp/0762752815 *This book is amazing!!!!! I love her recipes.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20 *Nothing mind blowing, but they are good and the slow cooker is always nice after a long crazy day

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20 *lowfat unprocessed, whole foods based. I do tweak her recipes and use oil. Recipes are easy and largely kid friendly

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20 *probably one of the best vegan cook books out there--EVERYTHING in this book is amazing, but most recipes are pretty labor intensive.


A few blogs/sites off the top of my head:

http://happyherbivore.com/
http://www.yourveganmom.com/ **love her...
http://vegandad.blogspot.com/
http://vegweb.com/


****There are so many more and I feel like I am forgetting some of my favorites

Yep, they are amazing! My family loves them open faced and topped with slaw

Again, anything Isa Chandra Moskowitz creates is amazing!

That is another resource I forgot to reference the www.ppk.com is another great forum/resource for vegans!
