Picture this: you’ve just gotten home from a long day. You have family members who need you, friends you want to catch up with, or maybe a favorite tv show you’ve been looking forward to. Plus, you have to make dinner or maybe plan for tomorrow’s meals and you wonder how to fit it all in. You start to think that a healthy dinner can wait and something easy and fast will do instead. Does this sound familiar? If so, you are not alone and we are here to help! Here are our top 5 convenient plant-based foods.
- Frozen fruits and veggies: These are great to keep in the freezer since they are already cleaned, cut, and ready to go. Simply add to smoothies, steam for a quick side dish, or add directly to soups, pasta, stir fries, and other main courses as you’re cooking.
- Fresh fruit: Most fruits are ready to be eaten as is or with a little bit of chopping up, so keep some of your favorites on hand for snacks, desserts, or even as part of a light summer dinner.
- Fresh vegetables: While many require cutting, peeling, and/or cooking to be ready to eat, you can purchase containers of pre-cut and washed veggies at most grocery stores and even some convenience stores and gas stations. Carrots, celery sticks, and some broccoli or cauliflower make a great snack, side dish, or even light meal, especially when paired with a whole food, plant-based dip!
- Frozen or pre-cooked grains and starches: Whole grains and starches are a key component of a plant-based diet, but often take longer to cook than their refined versions. Fortunately, many grocery stores now carry either frozen and/or precooked grains like brown rice, and frozen shredded and diced potatoes (just be sure to check for added oils and sodium). Check the freezer section or the international food aisle to see which options your store has.
- PlantPure frozen entrees and Meal Starters: When you simply have no time to cook, our PlantPure frozen entrees give you a delicious, filling, whole food plant-based meal that you can enjoy at home or even at work. If you’re in the mood to do a little cooking, but don’t want to measure out spices and seasonings, PlantPure Meal Starters provide all the flavor ready to go - just add your favorite veggies and starches.
