Plant-Based Meal Plan

Another week, another plant-based meal plan! Following a meal plan decreases meal time stress because I know that I’m going to eat and have all the ingredients!

If you get my weekly plant-based tips email, you know I started sending them again last weekend. I have received so many responses! I want to thank all of you for your love and support! I’ve still got some emails left to respond to but I’m working on it! If you didn’t get the email, you can sign up and you will start getting them next Saturday.

Yesterday I went to a local farmers market and bought a bunch of organic spinach and lettuce! I’m determined to enjoy every leaf and not let any go to waste. I’ll incorporate plenty of salads in the meal plan this week. Soup and Salad meals are a great way to do it!

I’m also working on eating through my pantry storage. I have so many beans, grains, pasta, etc. that I really need to use.

Summer Plant-Based Meal Plan and Shopping List

I just got back from two weeks of travel! We are home and ready to eat home cooking. However the last thing I want to do is cook every day. Instead, I’ll choose a few recipes from my Summer Plant-Based Meal Plan.

Summer meal plan that is plant-based with gluten-free options. Includes shopping list and recipes in a download.

Simply Summer Meal Plan

Does your summer schedule include a lot of cooking? My meal plan includes Instant Pot recipes and leftovers. Don’t worry, this meal plan will include non-pressure cooker recipes too. We take advantage of leftovers (My friend Anne calls them planned-overs) during the summer to avoid heating up the kitchen.

I also try to make do without extra trips to the store so when the fridge gets bare I’ll open a can of beans and enjoy them with salsa. That is pretty much my favorite meal and I have it for lunch most of the time if leftovers aren’t available.

This meal plan is perfect for summer! It's full of easy recipes that will free up your extra time for family fun.

Sometime else I’ve really been enjoying lately is connecting with so many of you who have taken the FREE 7 Day Plant-Based ecourse. If you haven’t taken it yet you definitely need to sign up! It’s perfect for people who are brand new to plant-based eating and aren’t sure what to do.

Another way to connect is in the My Plant-Based Family Facebook group.

The boys are in summer programs since we work full time so summer is busier than the school year. I’ll try to keep it simple with easy meals when possible, especially in the mornings. We do a lot of oatmeal, bagels, and fruit for breakfast. Take a look at our dinner meal plan!

Plant-Based Meal Plan

Monday

Tostadas with Mexican Rice

Tuesday

Baked Potatoes made in the Instant Pot (but you can cook them in the Crock Pot) with steamed broccoli and my easy Brown Gravy.

Wednesday

Mango Black Bean Salad and the boys will probably have a variation of this in taco or tostada form.

Thursday

Busy Night Pasta, I make this in the Instant Pot but you could do it stove top.

Friday

Veggie Wrap with Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus! The hummus is the star!

Treats

I’m also making frozen treats! We live in Arizona and it will be 120 degrees this week! I kid you not! That requires a lot of frozen treats!


I take a little break from meal planning in the summer. If you’ve been missing these meal plans be sure to check out my free Summer Meal Plan download. It features batch cooking to free up your nights so you can have more fun with the family. We spend our extra time in the pool, riding bikes and playing catch.

November 14, 2016 Plant-Based Meal Plan

I’ve been on a soup kick lately and I expect this week to be no different. I’ve been remaking my old favorites in my Instant Pot so I can share the directions for all my IPers. I also plan to start my bread baking again but every time I plan to do it, it gets hot again. Despite the warm weather here in Arizona, I’m on a fall kick and gearing up for Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, if you are struggling with what to make check out my Holiday Meal Plan and Cookbook! Trust me, it will make Thanksgiving so much easier!

This Plant Based Meal Plan is perfect for your family is fall. It has lots of soup, oatmeal and easy, family-friendly meals. [Read more…]

NEW Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan + Shopping List

It’s here! The new Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan!

Most weeks I share a free weekly meal plan with you. Every so often, I like to give you a meal plan and shopping list that is ready to print off and take to the store. Don’t worry, it’s still free!

I know how difficult it can be to transition and keep up with healthy eating. I struggle myself, especially when my schedule get’s out of hand.

I always hear such great feedback when I release new meal plans. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you what to do and this meal plan takes the guess work out of eating plant-based.

Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan

New Fall Plant-Based Meal Plan

Not only does this meal plan offer the typical breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas, it comes with a shopping list. I know that shopping lists don’t always work for everyone depending on how many people you shop for. That is why I came up with multiple shopping lists to choose from. Everyone gets the same easy to print menu but you can pick which shopping list is best for you. Choose from:

  • Breakfast Lunch and Dinner for Family of 4
  • Breakfast Lunch and Dinner for Family of 2
  • Breakfast Only Family of 4
  • Dinner Only Family of 4

You’ll also get all the recipes together in one booklet!

Wondering what’s on the new fall meal plan? I’ll give you a sneak peak!

Monday

Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Lunch: Veggie Wrap

Dinner: Mexican Casserole

Tuesday

Breakfast: Toast with peanut butter (or SunButter) and fruit

Lunch: Mexican Casserole Burrito

Dinner: Chickpea Noodle Soup

You can get the rest on the meal plan!
