This week our Plant-Based Meal Plan has a lot of our family favorites. I’m planning to use leftovers to cut down on cooking. Of course, I’ll use my Instant Pot so I can make easy meals while I’m busy.
Now that the kids are out of school for summer break, they are having all three meals at home. I will be sharing lots of lunch ideas for kids and have already started a blog post about it. You can check out this pin for a quick and easy lunch box reference. I’m working on them being more independent so we are keeping it simple.
When they first get up they will usually make themselves something like toast, cereal or fruit. Then mid morning, I’ll make all of us a smoothie. We typically eat an early lunch or leftovers or easy meals like beans or oatmeal. Mid afternoon they are hungry again and will start looking for snacks. Sometimes it’s fruit, granola, popsicles, etc.
My husband takes his lunch and snacks to work. This week I once again made his favorite, One Pot Broccoli Rice Casserole. There are 3-4 servings in the fridge ready for him. He also takes a lot of fresh fruits and veggies to snack on.

We have a few treats planned as well. Last week I made my No Bake Chocolate Bites, they are kinda like a peanut butter and chocolate oat ball. They were a big hit with my 10 year old and he isn’t very adventurous with food. I also made my Banana Bread and a new Double Chocolate Banana Bread recipe that I’ll be sharing soon.
In other news, my husband and I celebrated our 14th anniversary last weekend. A lot of our friend’s kids were graduating over the last couple weeks. It reminded me that my own high school graduation was 20 years ago. Then an old friend from high school found me on social media and we’ve been catching up. So fun!
