Summer Weekly Meal Plan

What does it mean to eat in season? Seasonal eating is all about consuming fruits and vegetables that are locally grown and in season. This means that they are at the peak of their flavor and nutrition. Not to mention, seasonal produce is typically more affordable than out-of-season options. For this gluten-free vegetarian summer meal plan, we will be using ingredients that are in season during the summer months.

Summer Meal Plan Highlights

  • Healthy and filled with an array of nutrients
  • Delicious
  • Gluten free
  • Vegetarian
  • Suitable for summer months – or any time of year you want healthy, delicious food with plenty of fresh produce!

🍅Summer Produce In Season

If you are not able to find all of these ingredients locally, you can also check your local grocery store for seasonal produce. With this meal plan, you will be able to enjoy all of your favorite summer dishes while sticking to a gluten-free and vegetarian diet!

  • tomatoes
  • zucchini
  • eggplant
  • corn
  • berries
  • peaches
  • watermelon
  • fresh herbs
  • cucumbers

The meal plan and grocery list are designed for two people, but you can easily make adjustments for the number of people you need to cook for.

⏱️Saving Time While Meal Planning

As a working mom and wife, time savers are a big priority for me when I do my meal planning. I’ve incorporated one of my favorite techniques in this summer meal plan.

For many dishes, you’ll cook two or three times the amount you need that day, then enjoy the same dish on subsequent days. This virtually eliminates prep or cooking time for later meals. You’ll even enjoy one completely no-cook day on Monday. That should help you ease into the week’s routine!
