Buy beans from the bulk bins since they are cheaper and healthier. You can cook the beans ahead, then freeze them. One can of beans equals 1 ½ cups of cooked beans, so I recommend you store in small bags, with 1 ½ cups in each bag.

Hummus is perfect for sandwiches and dips/snacks. You can make different flavors of hummus and put a variety of veggies in the mix. There are oodles of recipes online for variety.

Salad dressings and/or mayonnaise. Choose one or two and make enough for the week. We have many dressings in The PlantPure Nation Cookbook to choose from.

 

Snacking veggies (carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumbers, and peppers).

A PlantPure Testimonial: Eloise Chocalas

The story of Eloise’s plant-based transition is highly unusual because throughout her life, quite a few physicians suggested she look into a vegan diet before she actually made the change. Her story begins in the 1980s when she was working in Silicon Valley and was a self-described type A personality. At 122 lbs., she looked healthy on the outside, but had high cholesterol.  Interestingly, her physician recommended that she change over to a vegetarian diet to control her cholesterol. At the time, Eloise did not take his advice, but later wished she could turn back the clock to transition to a plant-based lifestyle much sooner.
