Effective meal planning skills can help you stay on track with your plant-based diet goals.
When I first decided to give plant-based eating a try, I assumed it would be challenging.
- I live in the South where bbq reigns supreme.
- There isn’t an abundance of plant-based restaurants and cooking every day isn’t easy with a busy toddler running around.
So, I did what any good millennial would do, I did some research and some YouTubing to find meal planning resources that could help me prep plant-based recipes throughout the week.
If not, I knew we’d easily find ourselves making poor food choices that offered the most convenience (like fast food joints).
My investment in learning how to meal prep and stock the pantry with staples that easily make simple meals have been key to staying on track with our healthy eating goals. Also, meal prep can save you money which is a big plus.
