Meal Plan Monday: Are You Snowed In?

Meal Plan Monday

Just in case you are snowed in, this week’s Meal Plan will focus on comforting meals that use basic ingredients that I usually have on hand. Here is an old list of basic supplies but I warn you it is in desperate need up an update, which I’ll try to do soon. If you bought my ebook The Plant-Based Diet Starter Guide then you already have an updated copy in the book.

Plant-Based “Snowed In” Meal Plan



  • Sandwiches (peanut butter, sunbutter, veggie, etc)
  • Taco Soup¬†with Baked Potato
  • Bean Burritos make with Unfried Black Beans and grains or veggies
  • Leftover Chili with Bake Potatoes
  • Veggie Soup


These recipes do not use a lot of fresh fruit or veggies but if you have them I recommend you add them. I wanted this Meal Plan to be pretty basic and rely on beans and grains. Add any extra veggie you have. If you are snowed in, I hope you have plenty of food stored.

I’m in the process of cleaning out my freezer and it is amazing some of the stuff I find in there. If your freezer is full try planning a meal or two based on food you have in your freezer. I have several soups stored in 2 serving containers including Green Chili, Cilantro and Rice Soup, Chili, and Enchilada Soup.

Are you snowed in? What foods do you rely on during emergencies?

  1. LAST week we could have used these ideas! It was the first time in years that I was housebound because of the weather. I was scrambling to find dishes that I could make that didn’t rely on my standby fresh produce. Right now, our snow is almost all melted off. Maybe next time, I can use some of your ideas here (but I hope that’s not too soon!)

  2. We have been snowed in on and off since the beginning of January. We are expecting another big snow tomorrow! We live in a rural area, so it makes it difficult to get out with all of the drifts. I thankfully have a well-stocked pantry and freezer thanks to our lovely garden produce!!

  3. Monday special??
