Easy Vegan Meal Planning Tips for Dinner

I know how overwhelming it can be to plan all your vegan meals for the week.

In this video, I share some tips on how to save time (and hopefully some coins) in the kitchen.

Recap of the tips:

  • Veganize your favorite meals — Love spaghetti? Use vegan crumbles instead of ground beef.

  • Save time on grocery shopping and cooking by using services like Instacart (someone else can shop for you) and Purple Carrot (use discount code “brownvegan” to save $30) will eliminate some of your overwhelm.

  • Be open to experimenting in the kitchen and expect to fail a bit too!

  • Use Pinterest, YouTube and cookbooks from the library for recipe inspiration.

  • Keep a list of all the recipes that worked well, so you can refer back to them when you get too busy to look at Pinterest or YouTube for inspiration.

  • Theme your dinners — Taco Tuesdays, leftovers on Saturdays, pasta on Wednesdays, etc.

  • Plan for leftovers, so you don’t have to cook daily.

  • Establish 3-5 go-to meals that take less than 30 minutes to cook.

Resources mentioned in the video:

  • Brands that have vegan crumbles (to replace ground beef): Beyond Meat & Gardein

  • My t-shirt is from 20% of the price will be sent to the Evangelical Church of Liberia who is committed to feeding hundreds of children in need. Support this dope cause!

  • Evernote is the free software I mentioned to clip and save recipes

One Pot of Chili...3 Meals | Vegan Meal Planning

Listen, I know you're busy...

Working full-time...

Taking care of the kids (including that big kid that's sleeping in your bed lol)...

Maybe you're taking a couple of college classes, too...

And you still have to clean, meal plan & cook along with about 10 other things. *sigh*

This is one of the main reasons we eat soup, stew & chili all. year. long.

Not just because it's delicious, but because meals like that are inexpensive and usually have leftovers for the next day.

I live for leftovers

A few weeks ago, I doubled my chili recipe and made three meals with that one pot of chili.

(1) Chili & vegan cornbread

(2) Chili & rice

(3) Chili taco salad-with lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole & salsa (similar to this recipe but I used the chili instead of walnut taco meat)

Save yourself some time and money and think about how you can remix leftovers for your fam.

I hope this was helpful!
