Spring Vegan Meal Prep
I know we’re already in week 6, but to be totally real, we are just getting started! Now that we know that we can eat delicious plant based meals, it’s about that time to talk about why we’re doing this for our health in the first place.
Plant based diets are rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. They're also very high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and are low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Individuals who eat a plant based diet are at a much lower risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity just to name a few.
We can still eat the foods that we love! With just a bit of tweaking and rethinking recipes, we can transform these foods to helping us HEAL rather than contributing to disease. It’s about changing the idea that comfort foods have to be on your cheat day, or the heaviness you feel after overeating a bowl of homemade mac n’ cheese is here to stay.
