I’m starting this Plant-Based Meal Plan series to share with you how I plan for the week and what a typical plant-based diet looks like for my family. I hope to inspire you to meal plan, prep, and simplify healthy eating for your whole family.

BATCH COOKING TO SAVE TIME & MAKE THINGS EASY
CHOOSE 1 DAY TO BATCH COOK
For me, I usually batch cook all at once on Sunday or Monday morning. If you don’t like the idea of spending a couple hours in the kitchen batching all at once, then you must learn to multitask in the kitchen a few times throughout the week. If you’re cooking a meal I suggest doubling the recipe, chopping veggies while it cooks, or making a batch of rice, beans, or legumes to store in the fridge. Do as much as you can to store prepped food for convenience later.
