Lunch

Easy Vegan Meal Prep in Under an Hour!

Happy Tuesday! Going to the office is the worst. We have to sit at a cubicle and stare at screens all day! And, typically, we have to fork over $10 for lunch to eat something mediocre that isn’t exactly good for us.

But not anymore! I have an easy meal prep “recipe” that you can make in under an hour for under $15 that will keep you well fed for the week!

These macrobiotic bowls, better known as “Macro Bowls” pack in the nutrients and taste delicious. Plus, they’re insanely easy to customize. Want more protein? Add some tofu or chicken. Want more fiber? Throw some black beans on top. Want more fat? Throw on half a ripe avocado or a handful of salty roasted nuts. The possibilities are endless for delicious lunch.

This month, I am enjoying my macro bowls with this easy, delicious Cold Brew Sweet Tea from Southern Breeze. It comes in a bunch of great flavors (Raspberry is my favorite!) and it is easy to make at work or on the go.
