Plant-Based Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

This week may be one of our busiest this month. My plant-based meal plan will be filled with simple recipes because my kids have 7 appointments, including Steven’s chemo, and we are packing our house since we are moving soon, oh and you know, our normal work schedules.

Plant-Based Meal Plan

Plant-Based Meal Plan

I probably have a couple of weeks before I pack up my whole kitchen but I am limiting my cooking. Mostly, I don’t want a big mess. I did some meal prep today and cooked my One Pot Broccoli and Rice Casserole for lunches this week. My husband loves it and it makes 4-6 meals. Last week, our youngest ended up eating most of it.

I’m also craving salads so I’ll be enjoying those as well. I think it’s the heat but hummus, veggies and salad are calling my name. We just bought a bunch of fresh produce but I’m still working on eating the foods in my freezer and pantry so I have less to move.

Plant-Based Breakfast

We will continue on our cereal trend this week. I’ll also have a few overnight oats ready to go. The Peanut Butter Overnight Oats is a favorite and get’s a lot of pins on Pinterest. We also have fresh strawberries and blueberries so I’ll probably make my standard Overnight Oat recipe too!

Plant-Based Lunch

Lunches will be leftovers, Broccoli Rice Casserole, Big Salads or sandwiches. I have hummus and I’m thinking about making my Red Pepper Dip which is one of my favorites.

Plant-Based Dinner Meal Plan

Monday: Plant-Based Mediterranean Bowl is so easy. The only thing that needs to be cooked is the quinoa and the leftovers are fantastic!

Tuesday: Texas Style Chili and oven baked fries will be a nice treat after a long day at the doctor. This is Steven’s chemo day and it starts really early in the morning and we won’t get home until after lunch.

Wednesday: Black Bean Mango Salad is perfect this time of year! Canned beans make this salad hearty and the mango makes it sweet and refreshing! I may make my Mango Salsa and use that instead. Either way, it’s going to be good.

Thursday: Instant Pot Black Beans and Rice is just too easy. It’s a huge recipe so I may reduce it by half. It isn’t very spicy, which means your kids will eat it. We spice up our individual bowls. I love cilantro and lime, or just a bunch of salsa.

Friday: Plant-Based Nachos! I can’t help it, Friday night is a good night for nachos! I love chips and salsa and add refried beans and you have a meal!


What are you working on this week? I’d love to hear what you are cooking!
