Save money and time with these delicious, nutritious meals that will keep you going all week

Is it just us, or does this January require extra motivation? Leaving the house on cold, dark days to go to the supermarket and cooking every day takes valuable time and energy–so we’ve come up with weekly meal ideas to save time and groceries.

Here are some meals we’re going to be enjoying for days over the next few weeks:

Week 1:

Vegan:

Roasted Cauliflower Taco Bowls

We love this recipe because if you make more of the base cauliflower filling, you can use it all week in salads, wraps, and bowls. Just switch out the other ingredients–for example, swap rice for quinoa, or bundle it all up in a tortilla–to keep your meal fresh and interesting each day.

Non-Vegan:

Roast Chicken

The perfect week-long option, a whole chicken can be used to create a variety of meals. Roast it with veggies for a meal that will last a couple of days, and use the leftovers in big bowls, salads, fajitas, and soups.

Week 2:

Vegan:

Lentil Bolognese

A vegan twist on a comfort-food favourite, this substitutes nutritious, filling lentils for meat–and is every bit as tasty. Pair with pasta for the classic dish, polenta for a comforting bowl or serve it as a stew with crunchy croutons on top.

Non-vegan:

Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry

Comforting, flavourful and creamy: it’s the perfect dish to keep us going on cold winter days. Repeat the meal with rice (we doubt you’ll get bored of it), or serve it with bread (naan, rotis or even pita bread will work well).

Week 3:

Vegan:

Sheet-Pan Ratatouille

So easy to make, but so versatile to eat: a simple pan of oven-cooked eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, onion, and herbs can result in endless dinner options. Pair with pasta or polenta, throw it in a salad, or even use it as a tasty and healthy sandwich filling.

Non-Vegan:

Chili Con Carne

A classic for a reason: it’s delicious, easy to make, and super filling. Even better, the flavours develop with time–so it tastes even better as leftovers. Make a big pot and enjoy it all week with rice, salad or tortilla chips. This recipe calls for beef chunks, but can be substituted with minced meat (or any other protein).
