What is meal prep?

Meal prep is the practice of preparing food in large batches to portion out and eat for several days. You can prepare several portions of the same exact dish, such as lunches for work or school, or a few different ingredients to use in a variety of recipes throughout the week.

How to do vegan meal prep on a budget?

You can vegan meal prep on a budget by choosing affordable meals made with inexpensive ingredients such as grains, beans, lentils, tofu and seasonal vegetables. Try dried beans instead of canned to save more money (and freeze extra portions), and avoid convenience foods like processed food and fake meats.

What are the best vegan foods to meal prep?

The best vegan foods to meal prep are dishes that will stay fresh for several days, freeze well, and offer variety with different sauces and toppings. Soups and stews, chickpea salad sandwiches, pasta dishes, and grain bowls are great options for lunches and dinner. Overnight oats, homemade granola, and healthy baked goods are great for breakfast.

How many days ahead can I meal prep?

It depends on the individual dish and how well each ingredient will hold up, but most vegan dishes stored in the refrigerator will keep for 4-5 days. Try preparing your lunches for the week on Sunday. If you’d like to prepare meals further in advance, plan on freezing these meals.

Can I freeze vegan meal prep?

You can freeze many types of vegan dishes, as well as individual ingredients, but not all. Dishes like soups, stews, and some pasta dishes like lasagna and ravioli freeze well, but other dishes like salad and rice will not. Freezing tofu changes its texture in a way that some people find unpleasant, so avoid freezing tofu unless you like it.

  1. 5 stars
    made the sesame ginger stir fry for 2 weeks straight, but with tofu instead of tempeh. cant’ stand tempeh. But it was actually really delicioous with tofu

  2. 5 stars
    Awesome range of foods..(I’m guessing there’s Tempah in there somewhere?!).. but where do you buy those mini bottles for the lunch packs, please?.. I’m in the UK btw.
    Cheers for now

  3. Hello! I’m going to be trying all of these and THANK YOU for the round-up!! I do have a quick (hopefully not annoying) question: Where did you get those adorable bottles for the smoothies and juices and such? I’d love ones like those for my kids’ lunches (they’re older kids, so no worries about them being glass). Are they pretty leak proof?
