Prepping foods on the weekend help me feel like I have a great start on the week. Yesterday I cooked brown rice and soaked white beans, I’ll cook the beans today. We also did our regular grocery shop, our bi-weekly Costco trip and I took my husband to Whole Foods for the first (and second time). The first one didn’t have what I needed so we drove a little farther to the next one.
I feel like we spent a lot of money this weekend because we were out a lot but we have a kitchen FULL of healthy foods and we took our kids out to eat a couple of times.
Plant-Based Meal Plan
I’m working on some new breakfast ideas this week. Additionally, we have apricots, strawberries, blueberries and grapes to add to our meals. We always have apples but are enjoying the new variety that summer brings.
- Fruity Grain Bowl
- GF Pancakes
- Muffins, maybe Blueberry
Lunches will be quick this week, using mostly leftovers with sandwiches to fill in the gaps.
- Bean Burritos or Bean and Potato Burritos
- Bean and Grain Bowls
- Giant Veggie Salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, white beans and rice.
- Baked Sweet Potatoes
My husband has already made his request and the rest is up to me, and our crazy schedule.
- Cheezy Broccoli and Brown Rice (Crock Pot)
- Veggie Pad Thai, I hope your aren’t getting tired of this! I just love it!
- Baked Potatoes with Spinach Salad and Oil-free Blueberry Salad Dressing
- Something new with Spaghetti Squash
- Veggie Quesadillas with Cilantro-Lime Quinoa
I don’t mention snacks on the Meal Plan every week but we eat a lot of snacks. Usually fruit, my 3 year old eats at least 5 apples everyday, he is obsessed. We eat other fruit also, along with veggies. Most of the time when I need a snack I’ll grab a baked potato or a little leftovers. I feel like my kids are grazing ALL DAY.
I’ve also been making some dips that are amazing. I’ll share those soon! I have high hopes to do some baking this week. If I do I’ll be sure to show it off on Instagram.
I’m going to try some new recipes from Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats after my next trip to the store. It uses a few flours I don’t normally have and I couldn’t remember what they were while at the store this weekend. The recipes are nut free, vegan and gluten-free so I’m excited to try them. If you’ve made any recipes from this cookbook let me know which one I should make first.This post contains affiliate links.
