Plant-Based Meal Prep

Dear You,

I’ve discovered something recently during my on-going nutrition journey – the glories of meal prepping.

The point of meal prepping is to give more time and nourishment back to your future self (/friends and family), making the hectic days a little more enjoyable and infinitely healthier than the vending machine or drive thru window can.

In the spirit of time-saving, here is a quick post and recipe to help you on your way! ☺️

•Preheat oven to bake at 450°F

• Pierce sweet potatoes and place them in the oven for an hour


(These were massive, so let them go like this for a bit longer)

• Mix 1 can of rinsed corn, 1 can of Trader Joe’s Cajun style black beans, 1 chopped bell pepper, and as much chopped cilantro as you like

Take those beauties out of the oven, layer on your toppings, and pack them up for multiple plant-based, vitamin packed lunch on the go! ✅

I also added a mini container of salsa and pico, (avocado would be great too) along with a sliced apple with some cinnamon ☺️🍎

Sincerely,

A Plant-Powered 20-Something

P.S. – More topping styles could include jackfruit BBQ with vegan coleslaw, vegan chili & cheese topped with Fritos, or even dessert-style with brown sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of vanilla! How would you make yours? 🥔
