Plant-Based Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

Our plant-based meal plan is full of easy recipes your family will love! I’ll be using my Instant Pot when I can but I also have a skillet meal, a hearty salad that is perfect for winter and a casserole on the menu for this week.

Plant-Based Meal Plan

This week is full of school, work, appointments and hopefully some fun! Having our meal plan ready allows us to plan ahead. If we need to skip some of the planned meals, I know which ones can wait and which ones provide enough leftovers for the next night. 

I’m thinking of making this Spiced Apple Cider soon. I may wait until we start our Christmas decorating. I know, we are behind but we attended a Christmas party over the weekend and have another one planned for next weekend. 

Plant-Based Breakfast

Last week we had Instant Pot Breakfast Rice as our main breakfast. This week, we have gluten-free Blueberry Muffins. I used a one-to-one gluten-free flour blend and my regular Blueberry Muffin recipe.

One of my sons is a big coconut fan! I think the Vanilla Coconut Chia Pudding will be a big hit! 

Plant-Based Lunch

As usual, we have a few meals cooked on the weekends to eat for lunches during the week. At my husbands request, we have One Pot Broccoli Rice Casserole. He loves it. I just had to reorder my nutritional yeast (I get the big bag) so I will have enough to make it again next week.

We also made a batch of pasta. Just noodles and sauce or an easy lunch. We can easily add some veggies too. We will also eat dinner leftovers for lunch. This week’s dinners are all good leftovers. 

Plant-Based Dinner

Monday: Instant Pot Minestrone Soup is one of my favorite soups! We use Banza Pasta to make it gluten-free

Tuesday: Quick and Easy Veggie Pad Thai is perfect for busy nights. It also makes delicious leftovers. 

Wednesday: I love my Mexican Casserole but I make a similar dish that is quicker! I think you’ll love my Mexican Quinoa! Let me know if you’d like me to share the recipe soon!

Thursday: Quinoa (or Rice) Lentil Salad is a hearty salad that works as a whole meal. It’s perfect for meal prep because you can cook your grains and lentils ahead, then throw everything together. I like to heat up the grains and lentils and mix them with cold veggies! 

Friday: Enchilada Casserole is a great dish to feed a crowed. My husband loves it! It will make great leftovers too.


What are you eating this week? Are you planning to use your Instant Pot?

  1. Holly,

    Merry Christmas! I would like a good quinoa recipe, and that sounds really tasty. Yes, please post it for us.

    Thanks, Randy

    • Hi Randy! Merry Christmas! I’m working on a huge Costco bag of quinoa so I’ve been making it a lot! I’ll make sure to work that new recipe into the schedule. The Hearty Quinoa and Lentil Salad is really good too!

  2. Have you checked the bulk bins at a natural foods type store for nutritional yeast? It’s $6.99 per pound at mine. I use it in pretty much everything so buy several pounds at a time.

    • The main store with bulk bins near me doesn’t always have it. After getting some headaches from the old brand of nutritional yeast I was using I’m a little nervous to try the bulk bins. It’s a great bargain though so I’m glad you found it. We gotta save money where we can. This is great tip I’ll make sure to pass along.

What do YOU think?
