Plant-Based Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

I didn’t do any meal prep this week but I did the grocery shopping so we have plenty of healthy foods ready to prepare. Before shopping, Jim and I discussed our Plant-Based Meal Plan for the week.

Produce for Plant-Based Meal Plan

This week we have planned a few easy meals, continued testing of a new recipe, and one of our family favorites. The new recipe is a quick and easy meal, less than 30 minutes, but I’m trying to get it just right. I had a friend make it and she and her family loved it. I think one more round of tweaks and it will be ready to share here.

We have also added smoothies back into our routine. I’m a big fan of hearty breakfasts but sometimes smoothies are the best thing for us. I shared my smoothie on Instagram this week. I’m hoping to start sharing more of our meals.

I’ve found one plant-based protein powder that we all enjoy. It’s from Vega.  I only use about 1/2 a scoop at a time and fill the blender with frozen fruit. My kids split a blender’s worth and I drink the whole thing, about 20-30 oz depending on the day.

Last week was Spring Break here so my kids were home with me while I worked. In my down time I started re-reading Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live book. It encourages me to focus on eating more nutrient dense foods. I’ve owned this book since 2012 and pick it back up every few years. Sometimes it helps to have a reminder to eat well. I’ve got lots of veggies ready to incorporate this week.
