Easy Plant-Based Meal Prep With Groceries From Whole Foods Market 365

I absolutely love meal prepping. If you’re new to it, it may seem a bit overwhelming and like a lot of cooking but with just a little bit of planning at the beginning of the week, you will be able to set yourself up for success.

Here are some of my key kitchen staples I like having stocked in my fridge and pantry to set me up for the week, as well as a quick plant-based recipe you can use for your next meal prep adventure.

Easy snacks – Fruit is such a quick and easy snack and also vital in my smoothies. It’s berry season now so I always have some blueberries and strawberries in stock. I also love having snacks that are easy to transport or munch on when I’m at home, so either chips or popcorn are always in my pantry.

Pasta Basics – Pasta is so easy to turn to for meal prep or a quick on-the-fly dinner. I always have some whole grain spaghetti and canned tomatoes on hand. All you have to do is add in some herbs and your favorite veggies and just a few minutes later, you’ve got a masterpiece waiting for you. 🙂

Grains – I like buying my grains from the bulk bin. It reduces waste (you can purchase exactly how much you need!) and it saves you money!

Protein – My go-to protein source lately has been seafood and tofu, so I always have them stocked in my fridge. When buying seafood I try to make sure it is sustainably caught!

All of these products can be found at Whole Foods Market 365 (they just opened up a new Upland location for my Southern Californians!). 365 only sources organically grown, non-GMO products. Absolutely none of their products contain any artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, or sweeteners! 365 is awesome because not only is the sourcing of their products a top priority, but they think about the price at which they sell the items. They want to ensure that healthy living is provided at an affordable price and it’s a convenient experience so that more people can have access to them!

Now for some quick and easy meal prep, here’s a go-to that has complex carbs, greens, and protein to keep you satisfied and it only takes 20 minutes!
