When you’re focused on eating vegetarian and meatless, it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. But after a few weeks (or months?) of making the same recipes over and over again, it can be time to expand and venture out to new ideas!
Today, I’m sharing my favorite Meatless Meal Ideas for Lent (or vegetarian eating) that are easy to make, loaded with flavor, and perfect for the family. I love picking up ingredients and ready-to-go meals at Walmart for holistic, meat-alternative meals that I can be creative with and truly enjoy! If you’ve been needing a change in your meatless meal routine, then this post is for you.

Quick & Easy Meatless Meals
These plant-based bowls are my FAVORITE for ready-to-go meals! I love Healthy Choice Power Bowls Plant-based Be’f & Vegetable Stir Fry and Healthy Choice Power Bowls Chipotle Plant-based Chick’n in my daily lunch (and dinner) routines. With no artificial preservatives or flavors and 16 – 19 grams of protein per serving, these meals are a tasty way to go meatless!
Healthy Choice Power Bowls Plant-based Be’f & Vegetable Stir Fry – Made with Gardein plant-based be’f, the flavorful vegetables and soy-sesame sauce are amazing. I love how hearty and delicious these bowls are, and I especially love that they can be prepped in just a few minutes!
Healthy Choice Power Bowls Chipotle Plant-based Chick’n – Quality seasonings, flavorful vegetables, black beans, and Gardein plant-based chick’n served on a multigrain blend with a chipotle pepper sauce. Topped off with deliciously roasted pepitas for a quick and easy meat-free meal that I can feel good about!
The meatless meal options with Birds Eye Steamfresh Broccoli Cuts are limitless! Made with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, and flash frozen to lock in flavor, I love this steamable broccoli for a quick and easy vegetable option in recipes. It’s also great as a side dish! Here are my favorite meatless ways to add Birds Eye Steamfresh Broccoli Cuts to meals:
- Vegan Buffalo Chickpea Bowls
- Simple Green Goodness Chickpea Salad
- Broccoli & Chickpea Rainbow Bowls
- Barbecue Ranch Pasta Salad
- Vegan Chickpea & Sweet Potato Bowls
The best part about having Birds Eye Steamfresh Broccoli Cuts on hand is that it’s always ready for adding to recipes or meals as a side dish!
Made with Gardein plant-based Chick’n, these hearty pot pies are perfect for everyday cozy dinners. I’ve always been a fan of Marie Callender’s pot pies, but my love for them is another level now that there’s a meatless option! Carrots, celery, peas, plant-based chick’n, all wrapped up in a golden, flaky, made-from-scratch crust that’s SO delicious. The taste and texture is unbeatable. And they’re quick and easy to prep!
Even my toddler loves these delicious meatless meals for dinner. If you’re looking for something a little more indulgent that you can still feel good about, Marie Callender’s Plant-Based Chick’n Pot Pies are perfect for the entire family!
