This weekly meal plan is full of nutritious meals that have been altered for Cass’s two children who have allergies to eggs, nuts and sesame. Cass says meal planning not only supports her family by saving money and reducing wastage but also creates less stress by knowing what is for dinners and lunches and snacks. Cass can also be sure that the family are fed well with maximum nutrients.
Most meals can be easily adapted , eg. using sunflower or pumpkin seeds in replace of nuts, ricotta cheese for quiche instead of using egg. Baking is a must as Cass doesn’t want her kids missing out on the occasional treat. For birthday parties she always has a stash of ‘vegan’ chocolate cupcakes in the freezer that her son can take along with him. Cass’s favourite baked treats usually are fruit based muffins. I also love making bliss balls made with oats and dried fruits so there is always a stash of these in my fridge or freezer.
