In my experience, it's so important to have several go-to meals for when life gets busy. In the latest podcast, I share some of our meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with apples, medjool dates and cinnamon
Smoothies-if you don't have a high-powered blender, blend your leafy green and liquid first.
Grits with Earth Balance vegan margarine, salt, pepper & garlic powder
I also mentioned vegan waffles, vegan pancakes, tofu scramble (vegan version of scrambled eggs) and Field Roast sausage as other options for breakfast. Just take some of your family's current favorite breakfasts and make a vegan version of it.
Lunch & Dinners: Spaghetti and tacos with Beyond Meat vegan beef crumbles
Gardein crispy tenders with roasted potatoes and broccoli and/or corn
Vegan Pizza with Daiya cheese
Not mentioned in the podcast, but stir-fry is another go to meal for us.
Some options for eating on the go: Red Robin (they have a vegan burger), Chipotle (rice, beans, guac, lettuce, salsa, etc), the hot bar at your grocery store, and try to find a local restaurant that is vegan-friendly. Happycow.net has listings based on your zip code.
