You can find some of my menus online at veganfaery.blogspot.com/ or find me on Facebook under The Vegan Faery. I am a vegan personal chef and each week I send my clients a menu from which to order. You can get some ideas from there. I also have three websites where I get A LOT of my recipe ideas from:
Happy Herbivore has a weekly menu plan using some recipes from her books and giving you some new recipes. You have to pay a nominal fee for the recipes but that helps to pay for her wonderful website. She is a great resource.
Also, the 21 day kickstart from PCRM.com has great daily meal plans.
Hi I wish I could help but it is good that you are making the change. Make healthier choices and get a calendar and out your meals on them for the week. good luck let us know what you work out. don't worry about the sushi, I cheat too. Mike

In an attempt to have a healthier diet, Iíve decided to use the cookbooks I have on my shelf. I intend to use The Vegetarian Motherís Cookbook, since itís geared for pregnant and breastfeeding moms with young kids. I also have some other vegetarian cookbooks to use. I will include chicken or fish once a week for my kids, because they like chicken and fish, but my diet is nearly 100% vegetarian, making an exception every few months for a sushi lunch (please don't judge me for that).
My problem is menu planning. Iíve been a completely unhealthy vegetarian for nearly 15 years. Iíve always eaten what I felt like, mostly junk. I have healthy recipes galore, but I donít know how to create an entire balanced daily menu. I want to do my grocery shopping once a week, so I need to make menus for a week at a time.
