It’s Tuesday night. The fridge is buzzing softly in the corner. In the air hangs that all-too-familiar question…

“What’s for dinner?”

Strapped for time and with your stomach grumbling louder than a rock concert, you settle for the usual options:

A simple, boring meal that leaves you craving something more


Greasy, overpriced takeout that zaps your energy (and your bank account)

But what if there was a third option?

What if you could enjoy exciting, nourishing dinners without the stress?

Imagine stepping into the kitchen at
6 pm knowing you have a head start
on dinner.

The menu is set, the ingredients are
prepped, and all you have to do is
turn on the stove.

Sound too good to be true?


Done-for-you meal plans that take the guesswork off your plate so you can enjoy plant-based dinners WITHOUT the hassle of recipe-hunting and grocery list-making.

It was so easy and carefree to have wonderful meals without having to do all the thinking! 

I usually spend hours picking recipes and making my shopping list but the meal plan did all that work for me.

You’ll be able to shop and prepare the meals quickly and easily. You’ll probably spend a lot less time in the kitchen and you’ll be eating healthy delicious meals.

I love that each day is about 25 minutes and doesn’t make a big mess.

The meal plan is a one-stop shop for flavorsome dishes that are accessible and filling. It takes all the labor out of arduous meal prep, helping you save time and effort by handing you everything you need for the week. 

Nisha has thought of every detail and it’s comprehensive without being overwhelming. I really appreciated how thorough the plan was and the fact that it included tips and tricks for prep, storage and planning. 

The meal plan made me realize how much of a difference a little bit of food prep makes.

You won’t have to think about anything! You just follow the steps and you know you’ll have a delicious, healthy, cheaper meal every day. 

The meal plan gives you the possibility to have a delicious meal every day of the week, plus a stress-free plan for it

I usually don’t do any meal prep at all and just do the whole thing in one go. But now, with the small meal prep on Sunday, it really is easier to get started cooking, and everything is shorter and less stressful.

Nisha is the first vegan cook whose recipes genuinely ignited my excitement for vegan dishes.

Her meals are bursting with flavor and they consistently turn out fantastic.

I would recommend the meal plan for its ability to remove the hassle of decision-making, stress, time, and planning from your weekly routine.

While I am not a vegan, I find myself eating significantly less meat, a change largely due to these delicious recipes.

Hey, lovely! I’m Nisha ―

You might know me from my cooking website or YouTube channel, Rainbow Plant Life, where I’ve helped over 1 million busy home cooks master vegan cooking.

In my conversations with hundreds of folks in our vibrant community, one thing is crystal clear.

You’re eager for a way to put together delicious, low-stress meals on busy weeknights.

That’s why I created these weekly meal plans.

So you can walk into your kitchen on a Tuesday night with the heavy lifting already done.

No more endless searching for what to cook, no more incomplete grocery lists, and no more marathon cooking sessions.

These meal plans are your shortcut to wholesome, tasty weeknight dinners so you can free up more time and energy for the things you love.

(It’s like being able to have your vegan chocolate cake and eat it too!)

So, take a deep breath and leave all the intricate planning and nitty-gritty details to me.

Your role is simple: follow the steps, relish in the straightforward cooking process, and enjoy scrumptious meals (and the extra time!) with your loved ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

The meal plans are quite flexible and can work well for households from 1 to 4. 

Each week’s three dinner recipes generously serves four portions. And our side salads stretch these meals out even more; they typically make enough to pair with two of the dinner recipes, and occasionally all three. 

If you cook for two, you’ll have tasty leftovers for weekday lunches or for another weeknight dinner. 

If you cook for four, you’ll get a nice mix of structure and flexibility. Three hearty main meals each week means you’ve got a solid plan, but still have plenty of wiggle room for those spontaneous dinners out, special occasions, or family pizza night. 

If you cook for one, you have several different options to tailor the meal plans to your schedule and appetite. 

For instance, you can make all the recipes and be set for nearly the entire week with lunch and dinner. If you’d prefer more flexibility, you can opt to make just two of the three dinner recipes in a given week. Our Grocery List – By Recipe page will help you shop just for specific recipes instead of all of them.

Many meal plans also contain recipes that are marked as “freezer-friendly” so you can enjoy these dinners and freeze remaining leftovers for busy weeks. 

Ultimately, this calculation is up to you, but I wanted to share the three reasons I believe the value far outstrips the cost.

First, your quality of life gets better. Take a moment to read the testimonials dotted throughout this page. Over and over, you’ll see the same thing: meal plan users are eating more nourishing meals, they’re getting dinner on the table faster, and they’re excited about cooking weeknight meals.

Second, you will almost certainly save money. If you order takeout just one fewer time per month as a result of the meal plans, you’ve already made back the price of the service and then some. If you order takeout two or three fewer times per month, you’ve made an incredible return on your investment.

Finally, it would be extremely challenging for most home cooks to do this style of meal planning on their own. For most weeks of the meal plan, I had to develop new recipes to complement my existing ones. I needed to ensure that the meals had overlapping ingredients and shared components; without them, you wouldn’t actually save any time when it comes to your weeknight meals. 

Only you can determine if this aligns with your needs and goals, but we’re confident that for many folks, our meal plans will be a game-changer.

If you complete the meal prep steps, then most meals come together in 30-ish minutes. For all recipes, we include the estimated active and inactive cooking time so you can plan accordingly.

Of course, cooking times will vary from home cook to home cook, depending on your experience level. But, the more you cook and the better prepared your pantry is, the quicker you’ll become!

While eating more plant-based meals can lead to awesome long-term health benefits (hello, energy boost!) ― these meal plans aren’t specifically designed for weight loss. 

Instead, we focus on crafting meals that are satisfying and won’t leave you wanting something more. Think dinners that are rich in nutrients and flavor.

Yes! Each recipe comes with gluten-free and nut-free substitutions so you can safely enjoy each meal without compromising on flavor. Plus, with The Complete Guide to Substitutions (a bonus guide you get for free when you become a subscriber!), you’ll find easy alternatives for allergens, as well as unavailable ingredients and flavor preferences.

Please note that we are not able to provide substitutions for soy allergies at this time.

I try to stick to ingredients that are available at well-stocked grocery stores. If you’re familiar with vegan cooking, very few, if any, of the ingredients will be “new” to you. 

Occasionally, when I make a recipe from a different culture, I will include a specialty ingredient or three if it’s worth it (similar to the recipes I share on my website and YouTube channel). The meal plan will contain instructions on where you can find these ingredients (both at local stores or online) as well as substitutions if you can’t find them.

There are some fan-favorite recipes from my blog in these meal plans.

But the majority of the recipes are exclusive creations you won’t find anywhere else – including my blog and YouTube channel.

I specially crafted these recipes for the Meal Plans in order to give you a unique and diverse cooking experience while keeping things efficient in the kitchen. 

100%. You get lifetime access to all the recipes that land in your inbox during your subscription. Save ‘em in a digital folder or print them out so you have an arsenal of delicious recipes to pull from when you’re craving something different or want to impress your dinner guests.

You can cancel your subscription at any time. When you sign up for the meal plans, you’ll get access to a customer hub from which you can cancel your subscription. If you forget how to access it, you can always email us at and my team will be happy to help.

If you signed up for a quarterly subscription and then cancel, your subscription simply won’t renew after the 3 months have elapsed (though, of course, we’ll still send you any meal plans remaining in that period). If you signed up for an annual subscription, same thing except your subscription won’t renew after the 12 months have elapsed. 

At this time, there is no option to pause your subscription. However, because you get to keep all the meal plans that are sent to you during the term, you can always take advantage of them at a later date.

Given the digital format of these meal plans and the bonus of keeping all the recipes that land in your inbox ― refunds aren’t available. 

However, you can try out the meal plans risk-free by signing up for our 7-day free trial. We’ll even remind you a few days before your trial ends.
