Meal Plan Monday: I’m Back

Sharing is caring!

Did you miss me? I was away for almost 2 weeks. I had an unfortunate computer problem that left me on an extended break from blogging. I appreciate all of you that reached out to me during that time.  Even though I wasn’t blogging I was scheming, I mean planning and I’m excited for what the future holds.

I still need to reload software onto my computer so I don’t have access to all of my files yet but I’ll sort that out this week. Then I’ll be back to creating Custom Meal Plans and working on new projects.

Plant-Based Meal Plan


This week I didn’t buy any cereal so we will be taking a different approach for breakfasts.


My youngest son, who is allergic to everything, now has an aversion to his bread. I’ll have to get creative with lunches. Our fridge is loaded with fresh veggies so I’ll start there. 

  • Baked Potatoes
  • Leftover Gluten-Free pasta with red sauce and steamed veggies
  • Veggie Rollups with GF tortillas, spinach, cucumbers, red bell peppers, etc.
  • Fruit Rollups with GF tortillas, Sunbutter or Soynut Butter and fruit like apples, pears and bananas.
  • Bean and Grain Bowl topped with raw veggies


Our dinners have taken a shift lately. My husband is going mostly grain-free and I haven’t had much time to cook. I try to make a few big dinners each week and keep it simple the rest of the time.

  • Veggie Pad Thai
  • Spiced Lentil Burgers with Baked Potatoes and random veggies
  • Lazy Veggie Pasta (GF) with red bell peppers, broccoli, onions, tomatoes, and spinach (one pot meal)
  • White Bean and Green Chili Dip with chips from Way Better Snacks and homemade salsa
  • Cheesy Brown Rice Casserole with added broccoli or peas (Crock Pot)

Many of the new recipes I’ve been making lately aren’t on the blog yet but I often post pictures on Instagram if you are interested.

    So nice to read this meal plan! I typically love meal planning, but the planning part of my brain has checked out this week, and my budget is really tight (when you need to plan the most, right?) You’ve given me lots of good ideas–thank you!

    • I’m so glad this Meal Plan is helpful! I do so much better, and have less stress when Meal Plan, even if I don’t follow it closely. I didn’t plan last week and our meals were not very good.

  2. Love seeing pad thai on your list! It’s my new fav dish to make (SO easy!!). Unfortunately, I’m still struggling to find a sauce recipe I love. Hope you post that one soon! 😉

    • Hi Kim, it’s my new favorite too! I’m working on a few sauce variations but I love my sauce. I’ll try to get it ready soon!
      My recipe is not traditional but I love it!

    Love these meal plans. Quick question..what type of GF bread do you use? Udi’s does have eggs in it. I just wondered…do you make your own and if so, do you use a bread machine?

    • Hi Kathleen,
      I buy two different brands. I buy Rudi’s at Costco (for a great price) and Food for Life Brand that is egg-free for my son who is allergic to eggs. It costs a lot for such a small loaf but it is the only loaf of bread my son can eat.
      I occasionally buy Udi’s when we can’t make it to Costco and enjoy it the most but don’t buy it often.
