Getting your family interested in eating better is one of the best things you can do to make feeding your family easier. Our biggest hold out, my 11 year old has made huge progress in eating healthier over the last year. In fact, I’m letting him help choose meals for this plant-based meal plan.
Like many people, he doesn’t want to feel pressured into doing something he doesn’t want to do. We let him take the lead and give lots of positive encouragement for good choices.
Plant-Based Meal Plan
I did a little batch cooking this weekend! We have Taco Soup, Baked Potatoes, Instant Pot Oatmeal, One Pot Broccoli Rice Casserole and Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing. I plan to make some Air Fryer Tofu and Overnight Chia Pudding today too.
We have all be eating a lot of Instant Pot Oatmeal! I’ve made two double batches in the last week. My son has been on a big Chocolate Overnight Oats kick! A few mornings lately, we’ve had mid-morning smoothies too.
Soup is one of my favorite leftover lunches. My kids are happy with sandwiches or oatmeal they make themselves. Last week it was leftover Tortilla Soup, this week leftover Taco Soup. Our batch cooked baked potatoes will be a great addition to lunch.
Monday: Quinoa Lentil Salad is perfect to start off the week. We have a lot of veggies from our weekend grocery delivery.
Thursday: Vegetable Pasta using all the extra veggies that haven’t gotten eaten yet. Definitely tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, onions, garlic and more!
Friday: Tostada’s are becoming a weekly favorite! They are so easy and everyone makes their own on our assembly line.
Last week I mentioned that I had preordered Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome by Will Bulsiewicz. I got it Thursday and I’m loving it! I’m learning a lot about our microbiome and how it impacts our health.
