November 14, 2016 Plant-Based Meal Plan

I’ve been on a soup kick lately and I expect this week to be no different. I’ve been remaking my old favorites in my Instant Pot so I can share the directions for all my IPers. I also plan to start my bread baking again but every time I plan to do it, it gets hot again. Despite the warm weather here in Arizona, I’m on a fall kick and gearing up for Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, if you are struggling with what to make check out my Holiday Meal Plan and Cookbook! Trust me, it will make Thanksgiving so much easier!

This Plant Based Meal Plan is perfect for your family is fall. It has lots of soup, oatmeal and easy, family-friendly meals. [Read more…]

NEW Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan + Shopping List

It’s here! The new Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan!

Most weeks I share a free weekly meal plan with you. Every so often, I like to give you a meal plan and shopping list that is ready to print off and take to the store. Don’t worry, it’s still free!

I know how difficult it can be to transition and keep up with healthy eating. I struggle myself, especially when my schedule get’s out of hand.

I always hear such great feedback when I release new meal plans. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you what to do and this meal plan takes the guess work out of eating plant-based.

New Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan

Not only does this meal plan offer the typical breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas, it comes with a shopping list. I know that shopping lists don’t always work for everyone depending on how many people you shop for. That is why I came up with multiple shopping lists to choose from. Everyone gets the same easy to print menu but you can pick which shopping list is best for you. Choose from:

  • Breakfast Lunch and Dinner for Family of 4
  • Breakfast Lunch and Dinner for Family of 2
  • Breakfast Only Family of 4
  • Dinner Only Family of 4

You’ll also get all the recipes together in one booklet!

Wondering what’s on the new fall meal plan? I’ll give you a sneak peak!


Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Lunch: Veggie Wrap

Dinner: Mexican Casserole


Breakfast: Toast with Peanut (or SoyNut Butter) and fruit

Lunch: Mexican Casserole Burrito

Dinner: Chickpea Noodle Soup

You can get the rest on the meal plan!

Instant Pot Inspired Meal Plan

This week I’m taking a slightly different approach to my meal planning. My husband and I both have a lot going on at work and expect to put in extra hours. I’m creating an Instant Pot inspired meal plan this week. That means easy Instant Pot recipes and some batch cooking for simple meals.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot you might want to consider getting one. If it’s not in the cards don’t worry, you can make the same recipes with other cooking methods.

As the week goes on I might switch up some of the meals. I really wanted to provide a meal plan for those of you who use the Instant Pot regularly and those of you who got one on Prime Day and are just getting started. We may have cereal instead of Oatmeal or simple rice or beans instead of the meal shown.

I think you can see that there are a lot of options for using an Instant Pot throughout the week.

Prime Day and our Weekly Meal Plan

Were you wondering where this week’s meal plan was? Well… it’s here; just a day late. We finally had a weekend away. We took a trip to northern Arizona; I found a little spot with cabins, hiking and lower temperatures.

I almost skipped the meal plan all together but I have another important reason for sharing. Today is Prime Day! If you are an Amazon Prime member you can get some amazing deals today. One of those deals is the Instant Pot! Don’t miss it! I heard from someone at Instant Pot headquarters that this is the best price ever!

I could easily use my Instant Pot every day.

I’m skipping Monday since it’s already passed. This week’s meal plan is fairly simple. After a long weekend vacation it’s hard to get back in the swing of things. This meal plan uses simple recipes that are big on flavor.  [Read more…]

Weekly Plant-Based Meal Plan

Our weekly plant-based meal plan looks a little different lately. I have more free time in the morning than in the evening and I’ve compensated by cooking a little more in the morning and a little less at night. Our dinners are either quick and easy or made in the Crock Pot or Instant Pot.

My kids aren’t complaining, I’m “the best mom in the whole wide world” anytime I make pancakes. This week we will rely on leftovers a little more in our meal plan.

I also think that simple meals taste just as good, and sometimes better, than more complicated meals. For the rest of the summer I’m hoping to try to simplify my meals even more. That will mean more leftovers, less cooking, and still eating well.

Some things I could eat every day, like baked potatoes, beans and rice, pasta with marinara. I’ve been enjoying more smoothies lately because it’s so hot and I love using frozen strawberries in my smoothie. It seems like I’m eating sorbet for breakfast.

Every summer I avoid using the oven (really it’s from May through September) except in the early morning so it doesn’t heat up the house. I haven’t perfected my granola bar recipe yet because it requires baking. I may have to attempt a no-cook version for summer.
