Meal Plan Monday: Cooking All Day

Sharing is caring!


This week I’ll be traveling to Miami to participate in a “cook off” at the Pritikin Longevity Center. If you remember back a few weeks I was in a recipe contest, the top two bloggers won the trip.

To prepare for my time away I’ll be doing all of our cooking (for the whole week) tomorrow. Ekk! It will be a busy day. Today I’ll do some prep so everything is ready. The Black Beans are simmering away right now.

Meal Plan


Since it is a busy week I’ll keep things simple by relying on easy breakfasts.


Since I’m already cooking a lot to prepare for my trip lunch will be super simple meals and leftovers.

  • Veggie Sandwiches
  • Sunbutter Sandwiches
  • Leftover Pasta with salad and/or raw veggies
  • Taco Potatoes with fresh salsa and a side salad or bowl of beans
  • Leftover Veggie Burgers with Baked Potatoes and salad
  • Veggie Stuffed Pitas in a GF wrap


Any guesses? Yes, super simple fruit and veggies.


I’ll cook large portions of dinner so it can be used as leftovers for easy lunches.

Do you cook all of your food in one day? Although it makes for a busy day I love the free time I have the rest of the week.

What is your favorite quick meal?
