A self proclaimed Pinterest addict, I consider myself a bit of an expert on the content you’ll find in their Food & Drink Category…enough so to be confident, that you’ll find plenty of ideas for any dietary preference.
I’ve rounded up some of the best plant based (or easily modifiable recipes) here, to fuel a sample menu for 4 days. I recommend making food in batches when you can, enough for 3-5 days. Sometimes you’ll just need to leave garnishes in small side bowls, or dress just before serving (i.e. salads). Rotate & swap your menu around on food prep day. One 3-4 hour timeframe (including shopping & prepping) every 3-5 days is not unreasonable, but I get that not everyone enjoys food prep. If you’re one of these folks, stay tuned later this week for a post on choosing healthy, prepared vegan foods & dining out.
Morning On the Go & Smoothies
Instant Green Smoothie: Prep ahead cubes, pop into blender with coconut water for an instant, nutrient dense boost to your day
Plant Based Paleo Friendly, Gluten Free Pancakes (almond flour). Note: Swap the eggs for 3/4 cup applesauce or 3 tbsp ground chia whisked with 9 tbsp water. Make extra’s for snacks!
Japanese Edamame Coleslaw (similar dressing to above, can repeat)
Mains & Vegetables
Creamy Portabella Mushroom Soup (serve with homemade yam fries &/or kale salad)
Clean Treats & Snacks
Pancakes! (Leftovers from Brunch)
Banana Boats (share one for dessert or a full one as a power snack, an hour before a workout). Ditch the marhsmallows, and use Vega Maca chocolate.
Have a (Plant) Powerful Week!…& don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest! Emmamazing
