I received an email from a lady who said that she spends her whole weekend meal planning, prepping and cooking and how it was making her overwhelmed as a new vegan and has her thinking about quitting.
I remember those days and ain't nobody got time for that!
In this podcast episode, I share basic meal planning tips to save time and money.
Recap from the episode:
- One meal/theme for breakfast & lunch each week
- Save all of your "real" meal planning for dinner -Where to find recipes? food blogs (here's my recipe page), Instagram, YouTube, cookbooks, Findingvegan.com
- Think about meals that are easy for leftovers like red beans & rice, chili and....
- Keep a food journal to track meals you like using a spiral notebook or software like Evernote
