It’s Fall Break so my kids are home from school this week. That means I’ll be doing a lot more cooking with at least 3 times as many interruptions. The weather has finally started to cool off meaning it’s not supposed to be in the 100s. That also means I’m back to using my oven. I’ve been testing a lot of new recipes that will go into an UPDATED version of my Thanksgiving Meal Plan! Stay tuned for more details. I’ve been sharing them on Facebook.
I’m also preparing some food for a Naturopathic Medicine Week Open House at Keystone Natural Family Medicine. If you live in the Phoenix area mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 8th and stop by between 3:00 and 6:00. There will be classes starting every 30 minutes and raffle prizes at the end. I’d love to meet you!
Plant-Based Meal Plan
This is my Fall Break Menu because when it’s Fall Break I need lots of food available.
I’m taking advantage of the seasonal flavors for most of our breakfasts. Organic Gala Apples were a great price at my local Sprout’s Farmers Market.
- Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal
- Apple Cinnamon and Raisin Breakfast Rice
- Pumpkin Pancakes
- Peachy Keen Oatmeal using frozen Peaches
I will keep it pretty simple for lunch. My kids will beg for sandwiches everyday and I might give in. I met the Soy Nut Butter folks at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference so we are trying it out.
- Soynut Butter Sandwiches with Apple Slices
- Veggie Soup, usually potatoes and broccoli plus whatever else I have
- Bean and Grain Bowls or Burritos
- Pasta with Steamed Veggies and Faux Cheese Sauce
- Lentil Shepherd’s Pie
- Green Chili, Cilantro and Lime Soup
- Butter Nut Squash and Quinoa Salad
- Portobello Fajitas with Cilantro Quinoa or Rice
- Taco Soup
