Vegan and vegetarian meal prep 002

Sundays are meal prep days,  we can usually make our food in under 3 hours, and that includes kitchen clean up. Anthony eats vegetarian, with the occasional cheese and yogurt, and I eat vegan. This is what we made for the week.

For breakfast we have our usual overnight oats. Mine is a half cup serving and Anthony eats a whole cup of oats. We add soymilk, chia, coconut, cinnamon and agave.

Lunch is crockpot chili with black beans, pinto beans, lentils, quinoa, chipotle, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion and spices.

For dinner, I’m having either tofu or seitan with quinoa and steamed kale. Anthony’s dinner is beans, rice and cheese tacos wrapped in lettuce instead of tortillas and topped with salsa.

Snacks (not pictured) include all kinds of fruits, this week we had cherries, pineapple, peaches and bananas. So amazing! Anthony also snacks on yogurt and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We always have whole wheat pita bread and hummus in the fridge too. I snack on Clif bars in the morning and dark chocolate at night when I need my sugar fix. We drink protein shakes after our workouts as well.

That pretty much sums up what we eat in a week of meal prepping. Since we prepare the majority of our foods all at once, it usually takes just a few minutes to put together when we are ready to eat. Our snacks keep us satisfied throughout the day when we need something quick.

Let me know your thoughts on this meal prep week. Thanks for reading!

      1. I always wonder how to make sure you have enough variation in your food when you do meal prep ? It is, I think, what holds me back in trying said preps…


      2. It can be done. You can prepare more variety, but it will take more time to prep. I prefer to get the prep done in as little time as possible. As long as the food is clean, nutritious and readily prepared for me through out the week and can keep me on track for my goals, then I do not mind eating the same thing for the whole week 🙂
