5 tips I use to make meal planning easier:
1) To save money and time, keep breakfast as simple as possible. Mornings are already crazy enough, so use this time to make delicious and healthy meals that take less than 10 minutes. You can serve oatmeal, grits, tempeh bacon with fresh fruit, smoothies, and much more.
a main food and plan a few meals around that ingredient- Google the
ingredient with the tag “vegan recipes” and many options will be available to
plan your meal around that item. Black beans are a great example of a main food
to plan meals around. One night you can make black bean burritos, and the
next spicy black beans and rice. Save money by picking up dried beans opposed
to the canned option. You can make your beans on the weekends and serve later in the week.
3) Put a spin on favorites and make enough for leftovers-Spaghetti is one of those meals that is very easy to change up. You can literally serve spaghetti every week with a new spin. One week try adding in sautéed mushrooms and the next lentil balls.
