Are you ready for the week? I’m not mentally prepared yet, but I’ve already created my plant-based meal plan for the week.
Over the weekend I did some meal prep for a birthday party and thankfully we have leftovers and a well stocked fridge and pantry. I made my Instant Pot Refried Beans and a quicker version of my Mexican Rice. I’ll either share a new recipe or update the old recipe with the changes soon. Having beans and rice in the fridge makes meals come together quickly!
When I started blogging again once my son was a year into treatment, I asked what type of recipes everyone wanted and overwhelmingly it was quick and easy recipes. I’ve been working on creating new recipes and remaking old ones so they are easier for busy families.

These days, my favorite meals are ready in less than 30 minutes. If it’s going to be longer than that, it needs to be “hands off” time, like in the Instant Pot or oven.
For breakfast, I prefer super quick. We normally have oatmeal, cereal or toast. I usually skip breakfast with the kids and have a mid-morning smoothie after they are in school.
My husband and I both eat leftovers for lunch. We like warm meals. He has already requested my One Pot Broccoli Rice recipe that I shared last week! I’m happy with beans and rice, but big salads or sandwiches are good too.
Our dinners are mostly quick and easy. Once or twice a week I might make something that takes longer, especially when I’m testing new recipes or tweaking recipes to get it just right.
