Meal Plan Monday: It May Be Fall But…

Sharing is caring!

This time a year poses a conundrum for me. As you know if you’ve been here for a while I live in Arizona. I should be on the Arizona Tourist Bureau I love AZ so much.

The problem is that the weather here is different from the rest of the country. Most people here aren’t quite ready for soup and chili even though it’s “Fall” in many places. I try to strike a happy medium, plus I am ready for those delicious comfort foods. I made Veggie Pot Pie last night.

So I try to keep a middle of the road approach to Meal Plans. I know I can’t make the perfect meal plan for my friends in Michigan, Africa or Australia. Hopefully you will find something that inspires you. Or do what I do and take a look at the Recipe Page.

Plant-Based meal plan

Plant-Based Meal Plan


We recently reintroduced oatmeal to our house and we are loving it. We have a few other breakfasts for busy days though.


I usually utilize dinner leftovers for my lunch and pack a lunch for my 5 year old. I usually post his lunch pictures on Instagram.

  • Taco Salad
  • Chili topped Baked Potatoes
  • Soup and a Baked Potato
  • Veggie Wraps
  • Leftover Veggie Pot Pie ( I have an older recipe here but I’m working on a new one. This one uses a little Earth Balance and wheat flour. The new one I’m working on is GF and oil-free.)


Have you planned your meals for this week? What season are you cooking for?

Don’t forget! I have some very special Meal Plans available soon! Especially if you’ve been curious about my Custom Meal Plans.

  1. Hey Holly..
    You have inspired me to share mine on my blog. LOL. I used to do that a LONG time ago, but have stopped. May have to start up again.. maybe make it a linky thing.. we’ll see.

    • Sometimes it feels a bit tedious doing it every week but when I’ve considered stopping for a while my reader usually ask me to keep going. 🙂

      Let me know when you start again and I’ll be sure to share it. I’ve considered doing a linky, I didn’t know if there would be enough plant-based people to participate.

  2. I am making chili as well…tonight, in fact. If it turns out well, it will be up on my blog this week. 🙂 Last night we had spaghetti with pesto, tomorrow I have pizza night planned and I honestly can’t remember the rest. This is why I keep lists on my phone. 🙂

  3. We are starting to have soup weather here in the Midwest!

  4. Holly, what is the upper left meal?

What do YOU think?
