Meal Plan Monday is back! For years, I posted a new vegan meal plan every week. We took a break from sharing meal plans for a while, but we are going to start this again.
If you enjoy getting an inside look into our vegan meal plans, stop by every Monday morning!
Plant-Based Diet Meal Plan
I don’t plan out every meal for every day. I prefer to plan a few breakfasts and sometimes snacks that we will eat. Mostly, I batch cook these or prepare them during a Meal Prep session.
I plan out 5 days of dinners. We eat the dinner leftovers for lunch the following days. If we get too many leftovers, we won’t make all the dinners.
This week, our main breakfast is Instant Pot Breakfast Rice. I also still have some leftover Instant Pot Oatmeal I made late last week. We will reheat these for the next few days and make a new batch once we run out. The kids will sometimes eat these but other times will have cereal, toast or bagels.
Monday: Sheet Pan Chickpea and Sweet Potato Tacos* with Pico de Gallo
Tuesday: Hearty Veggie Soup
Wednesday: Veggie Chow Mein*
Thursday: Cilantro Lime Black Bean Veggie Bowl*
Friday: Toasted Veggie Sandwich
Plant-Based Meal Prep
This week, our batch cooking/meal prep will include:
- Instant Pot Breakfast Rice so we don’t have to make breakfast every morning
- Hearty Veggie Soup that we will eat for dinner and lunches
- Brown Rice for the Cilantro Lime Black Bean Bowl
- Pico de Gallo for the Sheet Pan Tacos and Bean and Rice Bowl
We don’t stress about making a lot of food ahead of time but usually have a breakfast and a soup. We also like to make anything that will make the week easier.
*The Meal Plan above is a pared-down version of our Plant-Based Diet Meal Plan Membership. Members have access to exclusive recipes (marked with asterisks), complete shopping list, monthly bonuses, and tips for pleasing non plant-based family members.

We will often make an Instant Pot full of golden potatoes or a batch of refried beans. We keep fresh fruit and veggies available for snacks too.
