Mia Kouppa Lenten Meal Plan 2020

Mia Kouppa Great Lent meal plan

A meal plan to take you from Kathara Deftera all the way to Pascha!

We are so excited to be able to share with you our Lenten Meal plan! We’ve worked hard to offer you ideas for daily breakfasts, lunches and suppers as well as desserts and snacks. We know that the period of Sarakosti can be busy, sometimes stressful and occasionally overwhelming, and so we hope that our Mia Kouppa Lenten Meal Plan will help lighten the load.

Planning ahead is key to ensuring that you can keep your fast, however you decide to do so. We are not preaching that you fast in any particular way, but are simply offering you a reference tool should you need a bit of inspiration and help.

We’ve tried to make our Lenten Meal Plan as user friendly as possible. Here are a few ways we’ve tried to do so:

  1. Most recipes have a link which will take you directly to the recipe post. Hover over the name of the menu items which are written in blue and are underlined, and double click to get to the recipe.
  2. We have taken into account leftovers. So, for example, you may have Yemista one day for supper, and you’ll see that we suggest you have Yemista the next day for lunch.
  3. We realize that many of you (like us) work during the day, so suggested lunches are items which can be reheated or enjoyed cold or at room temperature.
  4. Most of our recipes do contain olive oil; this can easily be substituted with another type of oil. If you are abstaining from oil altogether on most days, then it may be a little challenging to use these recipes.

      Hi Maria,
      If you click on the menu items which are in blue in the calendar, you will be taken straight to the recipe itself. The Menu Plan does first need to be downloaded onto your computer (it’s a free download). Otherwise, you can find all the recipes on our website; simply go to our Recipe List and scroll all the way to the bottom where you will find our Nistisima recipes. Hope that helps.

    Great and Holy Lent in the Greek Orthdodox Church is a special time. It also requires that we change the way we think about our food. This meal plan is perfect!
