Does your summer schedule include a lot of cooking? My meal plan includes Instant Pot recipes and leftovers. Don’t worry, this meal plan will include non-pressure cooker recipes too. We take advantage of leftovers (My friend Anne calls them planned-overs) during the summer to avoid heating up the kitchen.
I also try to make do without extra trips to the store so when the fridge gets bare I’ll open a can of beans and enjoy them with salsa. That is pretty much my favorite meal and I have it for lunch most of the time if leftovers aren’t available.
Sometime else I’ve really been enjoying lately is connecting with so many of you who have taken the FREE 7 Day Plant-Based ecourse. If you haven’t taken it yet you definitely need to sign up! It’s perfect for people who are brand new to plant-based eating and aren’t sure what to do.
Another way to connect is in the My Plant-Based Family Facebook group.
The boys are in summer programs since we work full time so summer is busier than the school year. I’ll try to keep it simple with easy meals when possible, especially in the mornings. We do a lot of oatmeal, bagels, and fruit for breakfast. Take a look at our dinner meal plan!
Plant-Based Meal Plan
Mango Black Bean Salad and the boys will probably have a variation of this in taco or tostada form.
Busy Night Pasta, I make this in the Instant Pot but you could do it stove top.
Veggie Wrap with Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus! The hummus is the star!
I’m also making frozen treats! We live in Arizona and it will be 120 degrees this week! I kid you not! That requires a lot of frozen treats!
I take a little break from meal planning in the summer. If you’ve been missing these meal plans be sure to check out my free Summer Meal Plan download. It features batch cooking to free up your nights so you can have more fun with the family. We spend our extra time in the pool, riding bikes and playing catch.
What have you been cooking this summer?
