September 11, 2017 Plant-Based Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

The crazier the week, the easier the meals need to be. When I think about simple meals, I think about basic plant-based staples like beans, potatoes, oats, and pasta. We usually have a good supply of veggies and a well-stocked pantry. Even when we keep it simple, it’s not boring. A Plant-Based Meal Plan that is perfect for a busy week!

My kids request oatmeal almost every morning. Some days I’ll make something different but they still ask for oatmeal. It’s easy and healthy so I make it for them. They each like different toppings so I cook it plain and add different fruit to each bowl. If our evening’s busier than we expect, we will have something like spaghetti, Pad Thai, baked potatoes, or beans! Remember, you don’t have to have a meal with a dozen ingredients. Keep it simple!

  1. Thank you so much for your easy, delicious meals!! I made 5 of your meals this week – 4 from this weeks meal plan – and every one of the meals were good. I also made the veggie broth to keep on hand and used it in 2 of the meals. Everything I have tried has been good. But the best part is how easy everything is. Thank you so much and I am so glad I finally found your blog! (I would have posted a comment on the dishes themselves but it looks like the comments are closed on all of them.)

    • Hi Sarah,
      I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the recipes! I’m really determined to make plant-based eating as easy as possible for busy families.

      I didn’t turn off any comments but I recently switched up some of the behind the scenes parts of my blog. I’ll investigate it and hopefully get it resolved soon! Thank you for letting me know!

    • HI Sarah, I wanted to let you know I got the comment issue fixed. You should be able to comment on any post now! Thanks for letting me know!
