Meal Plan Monday: Back in the Groove

We are returning from a nine-day trip to visit family. You may have noticed I’ve been mostly silent on social media.

We visited family members in 5 different cities/towns and drove from Arizona, through New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and back home again. We loved our time away but I’m more determined than ever to eat well now that we are home and I’m back in my own kitchen.

I’ll be working a lot this week so I’m sticking to some of my favorite, easy recipes. My body is craving healthy plant-based foods after being on the road.

This week I’m going to be diligent about packing my lunch every day and actually eating it. Too often I get busy working and don’t take a break to eat but I know it’s important for optimal health.

Plant Based Meal Plan

Meal Plan

For Breakfast we will have gluten-free steel-cut oats along with overnight oats, baked sweet potatoes, multi-grain porridge and use toast as a backup for busy days.

My kids will take their regular lunches or leftovers or sandwiches along with fruit and pretzels. We have stuff for wraps and veggies with hummus!

Dinner

Mexican Bean and Rice Casserole

Lentil and Rice Burritos (with Lentil Taco Meat)

Taco Salad

Potato and Kale Soup

Brown Rice and Broccoli Casserole

You may have noticed that I’m using my Instant Pot for almost every meal. It’s so easy that it is my go-to method of cooking. If you don’t have an Instant Pot I provide either a Crock Pot or Stove Top version for all of my recipes.

I’ve got more great things planned this week including the Instant Pot version of one of our favorite recipes!
