Meal Plan Monday: Big Changes

Sharing is caring!

There have been big changes taking place in our household.

I’ve gone back to work full-time for the first time in about 10 years.

Before becoming a Stay at Home Mom and then later a blogger I was very focused on my career. I even graduated college early (in 2 years and 9 months actually) so I could get out there and conquer the world.

Blogging started as a great creative outlet and a way to help people on their healthy living journey and became a business endeavor.I loved being able to earn a little money while doing what I love.

There may be some changes but My Plant-Based Family is not going anywhere!  In fact I have some pretty aggressive goals for My Plant-Based Family. My husband has become more involved over the last few months and eventually I may hire a little help so if you are a Plant-Based Virtual Assistant let me know.

In my new job I’m a Social Media Coordinator for a faith-based, non-profit, social services organization that works with the homeless, victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, refugees, foster children and more. I am so honored to use my skills as a blogger and social media strategist to make the world a better place.

Meal Plan Monday

Since I’ll have much less time at home our Meal Plans will be much more important however I may not always publish them so I can spend that extra time with my family.

Plant-Based Dinner Meal Plan

I will be doing a little batch cooking on Saturday’s. I also bought an Instant Pot so I could cook things like beans and grains quickly. I recently wrote about the Instant Pot and why I LOVE it.

What are your favorite quick meal? What meals do your family love?

    Congratulation, Holly. I love your blog, website, recipes, advice! I don’t know what a virtual assistance is, but I am sure I could figure it out. I’d love to help! Starting January 8th, I’ll be out of a job for awhile, so I’ll have time.

    • Thanks Jennifer, I’ll keep you in mind. I’m still trying to figure everything out but the last challenge was a lot of extra work and I’m just not sure I’ll have time for all of the administrative duties.

  3. Congrats Holly! That sounds really exiting, may God bless you and your family on your new endeavor.
