Vegan Meal Prep: Ready-To-Go Meals and Snacks for Healthy Plant-Based Eating by J.L. FieldsVegan Meal Prep fits a much-needed niche in the vegan cookbook genre. JL Fields is a master of umami and good simple flavor, and she organizes this cookbook for you to follow her prepared meal plans (listed at the beginning of the cookbook) or just cook as you wish (the recipes are together by type, not by food plan, but each recipe has the meal plan # on its margin). All the recipes Ive tried have been delicious, thus far, and simple to prepare. The book is organized with a number of prep week options, recipes divided by category, and both a general index and an allergy-oriented checklist of recipes. If one is gluten-free or soy-free, etc., one can simply look at the chart to see which recipes will fit ones meal plan. Every recipes includes instructions on storage, with freezer and refrigerator instructions. Many options for easy food prep to keep you eating vegan!
My favorite recipes include the Savory Oats (I love creative savory breakfasts!), Pumpkin Oats, and the No-Tuna Salad, which is worth the price of the cookbook alone. There is a banana bread bar recipe that is whole food and easy, as well as a coconut chocolate truffle without refined sugars.
For those of us who are vegan for the animals, but also want to be healthy, this book fills that need. Resolve can falter when we are hungry and unprepared for dinner, and advance preparation can keep us on track. Thank you JL for a fabulous guide to easy veganism!
