Fall is here, and that means it's time for pumpkin, apples, and warm comfort foods. This Fall Vegan and Gluten-Free Meal Plan is filled with my favorites for five days of gluten-free breakfast, lunch, and dinner...plus snacks, desserts, and drinks! I've even made a grocery list so you can spend less time planning and more time enjoying delicious, in-season recipes.
I know I'm not alone in loving fall foods! As sad as I am every year to see summer slip away, there's something thrilling about this change of season. The air gets crisp, the leaves explode in color, and the food...oh my goodness, the FOOD!
Fall foods are colorful and comforting, and the in-season produce is some of my favorite.
To kick off a nutritious and delicious fall season, I've created a Fall Vegan and Gluten-Free Meal Plan containing five days of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I didn't forget snacks, drinks, or deserts, either! It's all right here, plus a helpful shopping list to get you going.
