The new normal has settled in as we have started to adjust to staying home. For those who have received an increase in job duties such as homeschooling and cooking three family meals a day, it can still feel totally overwhelming to feed the kids during working hours.
Here are five easy, healthy and family favourite plant based lunches to prep for your busy weekdays:
1. Easy Thai Noodles - Forks Over Knives
This recipe is delicious and since it can be served hot or cold, it's a great meal to make in advance to refrigerate, and dish out for lunch in minutes!
2. Week Long Power Bowls - Oh She Glows
The recipe below (which is totally customizable for veggies you have on hand!) takes less than 30 minutes of active prep time, but makes enough food for several portions. You can quickly reheat to build hearty, nutritious bowls during the week.
3. 10 Minute Pasta - Oh She Glows
Not only is this pasta fast and delicious, it packs in tons of protein, fibre, and healthy fats.
4. Chickpea Sunflower Sandwich - Minimalist Baker
This sandwich is extremely flavourful, filling and healthy. It's simple to whip up the chickpea mash in advance to add to slices of bread for lunch time!
5. Vegan Veggie Pita Pizza - The Savory Vegan
These Vegan Veggie Pita Pizzas take 10 minutes to cook and combines all the great flavours of traditional pizza without the need for cheese!
