Meal prep will save you a lot of time! Here are 10 vegan meal prep recipes that you’ll love! Make a week-worth of meals in just a couple of hours.
I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again: meal prep is one of the best things ever and the one thing that really changed my life regarding my health and eating habits. And the concept is so simple, really! Meal prepping basically means scheduling and preparing all your meals (usually for the following week) ahead of time. If you do this over the weekend, you will have your meals ready for the next days and you’ll never have to wonder what are you going to eat ever again!
Besides being so useful for our health, meal prep saves us a lot of money and time, as you will permanently be in control of what you eat and how much you’re spending on your daily meals. You can make cheap meals that are 30 minutes or less and also freezer friendly for a couple of days in advance.
There are many things to be said about meal prep and I could talk about this for an entire day. But, I think I convinced you (if you didn’t already know) that you have to try meal prep at least once, regardless if you do it for economical, health or body image reasons.
And because I want to help you start your meal prep journey, I created this list of 10 of my favorite vegan meal prep recipes that are anything but boring! Forget about those tasteless, boring meals you may be used to and try these flavorful and super easy to make recipes instead! They are so good, they could feed a crowd!
Click on the linked titles in order to access these exciting vegan meal prep recipes. You will find here recipes from my own blog, but also from some other food blogs that I simply love. I hope you will try at least one of these recipes!
It’s time to stop worrying about what you’re going to eat! Whether you simply want to get in shape, eat less processed foods or you’re struggling with food allergies and intolerances, I created the personalized meal planner app to help you.
