Meal Plan Monday: School is (almost) Out

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been cooking up some new recipes lately. I hope to share at least one of them with you this week. We have very little scheduled so I should have plenty of time to cook. We will be completely done with school on Thursday.

This will be my first summer working out side of our home since I had kids. My husband is staying home with them this summer and plans to take over some of the cooking. One of his favorite things to cook is Crock Pot Mexican Rice and Bean Casserole. It’s also heating up so I’ll be bringing out some of our Summer recipes.

Plant Based Meal Plan

Meal Plan Monday

Breakfast is already taken care of. I made our Gluten-Free Steel Cut Oats in my Instant Pot. I use the Veggie Queen’s technique but put my own spin on it. This week we will alternate diced apples and blueberries.

Lunches will be leftovers, baked potatoes, and veggie sandwiches. I’m really looking forward to the veggie sandwiches. I’ve got lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, carrots and peppers that I’ll pair with hummus.

Plant-Based Dinners

BBQ Cauliflower Bites with Dirty Mashed Potatoes and celery (recipe coming soon)

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms with raw veggies

Bean Burgers with potato wedges

Gluten-Free Spaghetti with lentils and mushrooms and a side salad

Crock Pot Mexican Rice and Bean Casserole (hubby will cook)

Maybe Quinoa-Lentil Salad is I need another meal, it’s great as leftovers
