what a fantastic site. Thank you. I am learning new ways to eat a more healthy diet but one area I have still got much to learn about is weekly meal prepping to ensure that I suceed. Do you have any articles on meal prepping as such? I am a mum on the run and I need to find a few winner recipes that help me stay on track with my weight loss goal. I will look at your wonderful ideas here and see if I can prepare a food prep chart of sorts. wishing you all the best. Michelle.


Hey Michelle, thanks so much for this message! I work a lot and I don’t always have tonnes of time to cook meals or think hard about what I’m eating for the day. I tend to have a bunch of vegan “fast food” items on hand at all times so I can just grab something and go. I also have a couple of go to meals that are really quick and easy, so I’ll share these with you.

For breakfast at work, I usually take quick oats/porridge, I’m loving this one at the moment. I just put it in a mug, add water, microwave and it’s done. Slice a banana on top to make it sweeter. I also take a container of mixed raw nuts like almonds, cashews and walnuts to snack on. I take fresh fruit as well. Sometimes I buy hummus & crackers. I made these granola bars recently and took them to work for 2 weeks. For lunches, I often buy microwavable brown rice. You can get them in single serve portions. Then I mix it with beans (5 bean mix is great) and salad and vegan pesto or whatever I have on hand. Alternatively, cous cous. Of course, a sandwich is always quick and easy. 

When I’m at home, breakfasts include toast with mashed avocado, chilli flakes and drizzle of olive oil. Or I make a smoothie with my nutribullet which I can put frozen fruit, spinach, coconut water, chia & flax seeds into. So much nutrition and so easy. 

One of my absolute favourite recipes at the moment is vegan laksa (which I’m sure doesn’t resemble a traditional laksa at all.) I wrote it up here. It takes about 20 minutes and it is soo good, I’ve been having it several times a week. You basically just heat up some vegan laksa or red thai curry paste with coconut milk, add in some veggies and cook for a few minutes, then add in some rice noodles, tofu puffs, bean sprouts.

I’d recommend checking out garden of vegan for some food prep ideas.

Best of luck xx
