At Planty, we like to lean on all the good stuff nature has to offer to help us sustain our vitality all year long.  Joe's created an uplifting meal plan that is simple, adaptable, wholesome, and delicious.

From breakfast and lunch to dinner suggestions, you'll find many easy ideas and smart tips to make the most of plants - even when you're short in time, energy, or creativity.  ⁠


Beat the blues with meals that feel like sunshine & a mindful lunchtime activity.


Breakfast: Mood-boosting Dark Chocolate Granola - with coconut milk

Lunch: BBQ Banana Blossom Burrito by Planty (served naked)

Dinner: Homemade Beetroot & Crumbled Cheese Tart with a green side salad

Tips: Prep your granola the night before and make some extra if you fancy having it another morning during the week. While your Cheesy Beetroot tart bakes at dinner time, prepare your overnight oats for Tuesday morning.


A proper energy boost with high protein, fibre and iron to get you in the rhythm today.


Breakfast: Overnight oats

Lunch: Hearty Jackfruit Chowder by Planty

Dinner: Zesty XinXim by Planty or if you’re in the mood for cooking, homemade Xinxim with Grilled Aubergine

Keep the momentum going with high protein, fibre & magnesium for a mid-week boost.

Sharing plates: Smokey Nduja dip, and Cheesy Pizza Twist

Pro tips to make things even easier:

Besides meal planning, we also recommend trying to make the most of your lunch hour (with minimum cooking and screen time) and eating at least 5 portions of plants.

Almost all fruits & veggies count towards your 5-a-day (plus all our Planty meals count towards 2 of your 5-a-day), so getting the recommended daily amount can be easier and tastier than you think.
