Our weekly grocery shopping and meal prep is done and our plant-based meal plan is ready for the week. When we take some time to plan and prep what we want to eat, it makes our week go so much smoother.
This week we only have 4 appointments, I know it sounds like a lot but it’s not much for us. Hopefully everything goes smooth but it if doesn’t, I know we have some meals prepped, and plenty of fruit and veggies to get us through the week.

Plant-Based Meal Plan
Over the weekend we cooked a big pot of soup. We made my Hearty Veggie Soup with a few changes. I had zucchini leftover from testing some new recipes and used it. It was a great addition to the soup. I didn’t have petite diced tomatoes so I used fresh tomatoes. That changed up the flavor quite a bit.
We also cooked a big pot of black beans in the Instant Pot. We will use these in several recipes instead of using canned beans. It’s pretty easy to make a big pot to use throughout the week.
We are all over the place with breakfast these days. One of our son’s has been enjoying our version of Rip’s Big Bowl. Our youngest usually only wants fruit for breakfast. I’ve been on a big Instant Pot Oatmeal kick. My husband has been enjoying Sweet Potatoes we batch cook in our Instant Pot.
Now that I’m recovered from being sick, I’m back to my Big Salads for lunch. I’ll also be eating the Hearty Veggie Soup we made this weekend. I have two portions stored for my husband to take to work, and the rest in a big container for who ever comes first.
Monday: Vegetable Spaghetti with a green salad and whatever veggies we decide to add in. We love to have pasta for a quick meal.
Tuesday: Green Chili, Cilantro and Lime Soup is perfect for this week. I bought the best tasting cilantro we’ve ever had. I’m determined to use every bit of it.
Wednesday: Plant-Based Mediterranean Bowl with Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus. We got some great jalapenos to pair with the cilantro! I’ve been wanting to make a new batch of hummus. I may take photos to share a variation of my classic Mediterranean Bowl.
Thursday: Sheet pan meal that included potato wedges, veggie burgers and other roasted veggies.
Friday: Pineapple and Tofu Kabobs are a favorite because I love tofu and we have a big pineapple that will be perfect for this. In all honesty, I’ll probably skip the skewers and do it all stir fry style.
I’m also thinking of making some Banana Bread this week. Our oldest son just got out of the Navy and is staying with us for a little while. Growing up he loved banana bread! I’ve been wanting to make Brownies too but that may be too ambitious.
