Meal Plan Monday – A Week’s Worth of Meals with Gluten Free, Dairy Free Options

For us, a menu plan is just one more step to an organized home. Here’s what we’re planning for Meal Plan Monday/Menu Plan Monday this week!


For us, a menu plan is just one more step to an organized home. Between homeschooling, renovating, and blogging, our days are full. Having a menu plan helps to keep us on task; it saves us from forgetting to take something out to thaw, and it’s a way to make sure that I don’t plan a meal that needs to cook for hours on a day when we won’t be home. The weeks we make a meal plan are just so much easier.

I’ve decided to participate in Menu Plan Monday/Meal Plan Monday this week. We’ve loved adding recipes to the blog, and now it’s time to show you how to use those simple recipes in an organized menu plan.

Meal Plan Monday – A Week’s Worth of Meals with Gluten Free, Dairy Free Options

Here’s a list of meals that we’ve planned for this week

Breakfasts

breakfasts for meal plan monday

Sunday: Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Monday: 3 Ingredient Banana Berry Smoothie

Tuesday: Blueberry Granola Overnight Oatmeal

Wednesday: Grain Free English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches

Thursday: Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Friday: Basic Egg Muffins

Saturday: Gluten Free Slow Cooker French Toast

On Saturdays and Sundays, we have breakfast together, so the protein pancakes make a great family breakfast. Smoothies are great for busy days, and pumpkin spice is great any time of year. The slow cooker French Toast gives us the chance to sleep a little late on Saturdays. Everyone can help themselves when they get up.

Lunches

Sunday: Sweet Potato Nachos

Monday: Grilled Chicken Margherita Flatbread Pizza

Tuesday: Vegan Vegetable Fried Rice

Wednesday: Savory Wieners and Beans

Thursday: Loaded Potato Slices

Saturday; Leftovers/Raid the Refrigerator Day

After a big breakfast, sweet potato nachos are a perfect mid-afternoon snack; not too heavy, but enough to hold us over until dinner. For weekday lunches, I plan meals that are quick and easy. Saturday is a great day to use up the leftovers before we plan for the next week!

Dinners
