September 28, 2015 Plant-Based Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

What’s for dinner? Have you full switched to plant-based fall favorites or are you still hanging on to summer?

I’ve been getting dinner inspiration from some of many of YOU on Facebook. I recently asked “What is the best (plant-based) thing you’ve cooked recently?” and I found a lot of great ideas. Feel free to hop over and add yours!

I’m going to use many of those ideas in our meal plan this week.

Plant-Based Meal Plan Monday

Plant-Based Meal Plan

Some readers have wondered if this is a daily meal plan. It is weekly. I don’t assign specific days for meals because I would get off track. I just plan out 4-5 recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and cook as often as I need too (expect those times I batch cook or do once a week cooking.)

Let’s start with dinner.


These plant-based fall favorites are perfect for the cooler weather, or for those of us who are pretending the weather is cooler.

  • Enchilada Casserole, I love enchiladas but a sloppy casserole is easier to make.
  • Veggie Spaghetti with a side salad and Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing.
  • Roasted Veggies I’m thinking potatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, peppers, broccoli and tomatoes.
  • Veggie Pizza or Pizza Pasta if I’m short on time.
  • Soup, either Taco Soup or Simple Veggie Soup


I’ve been working from home most of the time so I haven’t needed to pack my lunch. We still pack a lunch for our 1st grader every day and our preschooler about half the week. I like having the ability to eat leftovers at home.


I really enjoy using my Instant Pot in the mornings. Though not all of the recipes use a pressure cooker I like having that option.

  • Steel Cut Oats with fruit.
  • Sweet Potatoes in the Instant Pot. We top them with cinnamon and raisins.
  • Blueberry Muffins or Banana Muffins (using my Banana Bread Recipe) and fruit
  • Cereal as a stand by

What do you have on your meal plan this week? Were you inspired by any of these plant-based meal ideas?

  1. I saw the oatmeal pictures and immediately started to hope for the details! Phew. This is was a great visit to your site this morning! I hope to meet you at the Food Allergy Blogger in November. I’m also hoping to move closer to a plant based diet.

    • Hi Caroline, sorry for the let down.
      The oatmeal is easy! It’s just steel cut oats cooked in my instant pot, then sweetened with maple syrup. I use banana slices and chia seeds on top. Easy peasy!
      I’d love to meet you at FAB Con! I saw you last year but we never met! I’d love to chat!
