Scrambled tofu burritos for freezing. These are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts.

 

Mason jar oatmeal. You can make a week’s worth of breakfasts by building several jars at the same time. Grab and go!

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).
