Meal Prep Monday in Under 30 Minutes.

You work full time, you go to school, or you have kids. Chances are a good 90% of us just don’t have time to meal prep. Being prepared is one of the best ways to ensure a healthy menu for the week. When your hungry, or “hangry” it is so easy to grab something you wouldn’t usually eat, then feel guilty later.

But you are in luck. Meal prep does not have to be something to stress over & you can make these two easy plant-based meal preps in under 30 minutes! 

Meal #1 Buddha bowl! 

Buddha bowls are hearty and filling dishes that consist of a wide range of raw or roasted vegetables, grains, beans, and nutritious dressings or sauces.

With whole grains, plant proteins, and vegetables… this is the ideal vegan one-bowl dish + a quick and easy meal prep, that’s for sure! Buddha bowls are more of a general formula than a specific recipe because with them the possibilities are endless. So where do you start?

How to build the perfect Buddha Bowl with 5 simple steps:

1. Start with the grain: brown rice, barley, millet, quinoa, or sweet potatoes. Ideally, they would take up 1/4 of the bowl.

2. Add your protein: Chickpeas, beans, edamame, hemp seeds, egg if not vegan, etc. This should also take up 1/4 of your bowl.

3. Assemble your veggies & leafy greens, raw or cooked: I like to shoot for 3-4 different colors. This should take up 1/2 of your bowl.

4. Sauce it up: Create a homemade dressing, use your favorite paleo dressing, or side it with hummus. This is optional and will act as a “topping” — You can also add some fresh herbs, kimchi, sesame seeds, avocado, or nuts.

5. Mix it up!

The more varied the color in the food that you eat, the more nutrients you’re getting! See an example below. 
Grain: Quinoa
Veggies: roasted broccolini & cauliflower
Raw Veggies: Carrot ribbons, peppers, and broccoli microgreens
Extras: Hemp seeds & primal kitchen paleo dressing
This takes as long as the veggies take to make
Prep time/chopping 5 minutes
Veggie cook time: 15 minutes
Quinoa cook time: 15 minutes
When you prepare these at the same time it’s done in under 30 minutes.
Meal #2 Veggie Curry 
This meal is easier than 1, 2, 3.
Just chop a handful of different veggies & saute them in a dutch oven.
Add Some tomato puree, curry spice, and coconut milk & you have yourself a meal.
Serve with quinoa, rice, or cauliflower rice.
I suggest using the same base as the recipe above to cut cook time.
Veggies can be made in under ten minutes while veggies are roasting.
