Healthy Vegetarian Weekly Menu from Foolproof Living

I’m so excited to share this healthy vegetarian weekly menu from Foolproof Living. Aysegul Sanford is the foodie and author behind Foolproof Living and here is an introduction to this lovely woman in her own words:

“I started Foolproof Living back in 2013 after my mother’s sudden passing. I wanted a place where I can gather her recipes. I really didn’t think that I would stick to it, but I did. Since then, I worked really hard to better my photography and started to work as a food photographer. Photography and reading are my true hobbies. I am a cookbook and podcast junkie. Lately, I have been very into naturally sweetened baking and I am working on getting my website to be a place where all baked good are made with natural sweeteners. Therefore, I am collecting cookbooks that share recipes similar with my goal. I think what makes me unique is the fact that I grew up in Turkey and moved to the US fifteen years ago. Since then I lived in Princeton, San Diego, Atlanta, and even on a small island called Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.”

I’m in love with the recipes and photography on Foolproof Living and hope you enjoy the featured Healthy Vegetarian Weekly Menu. Click here for this week’s grocery shopping list.
