Prep Ahead of Time:
To make things a little simpler during the week, you can prep these recipes ahead of time for speedy weekday meals!
- Chia Jam: All the flavour of jam with less sugar and added healthy fats! Use any frozen or fresh berries and add maple syrup for a touch of sweetness! Use for peanut butter sandwiches, PB&J Oats, Toast and Chia Pudding.
- Chickpea Salad: This tastes even better after sitting for a night in the fridge and can last all week for lunches and snacks
- Baked Oatmeal Cups: These are great for quick breakfasts to go or snacks in a lunch box
Creamy Tomato Pasta – feel free to sub plant-based sausage for your favorite sausage. Make the cashew cream ahead of time for a speedier dinner!
Butter Tofu – Use unsweetened coconut yogurt or dairy yogurt. Omit Jalapeno to reduce spice for kids! Use pita bread as naan. Stir in spinach at the end for extra nutrition
Mac & Cheese – Make with chickpea pasta for extra protein, serve with roasted broccoli + extra cheese sauce for dipping
Pizza Night – Use leftover canned tomatoes, pizza dough, plant-based sausage, and any vegetables left from the week!
Humus & Vegetable Wraps: Roast extra vegetables and tofu when making greek pita wraps. Add them to bread or pita with hummus for lunch the next day! To make it kid friendly feel free to swap out for raw vegetables and add any other sauces like mustard, pickles or mayo!
Pasta Salad: Make it kid-friendly by adding a spoon of mayonnaise to the dressing, this will make it milder! Add any leftover herbs or vegetables to taste. Try adding chickpeas for an extra boost of nutrition.
Nut Butter Chia Jam Sandwiches – Swap out a nut-free seed butter such as pumpkin seed or Wow Butter for school safe lunches!
Cream Cheese and Cucumber Sandwiches – Serve these on a bagel, bread or pita. We love Spread ‘Em Cashew Based Cream Cheeze, but feel free to use your favourite! Add tomatoes or spinach for extra nutrition.
Smoothies: Use leftover spinach, banana, berries, chia seeds and nut butter
Oatmeal: Add pre-made chia jam and flax!
Toast: try the combos below
Avocado + Lemon + Cilantro/Basil
Peanut Butter + Chia Jam
Spread’Em Cream Cheese + cucumber or tomato
Leftover hummus + tomato + Basil
How to use up Leftover Ingredients:
Herbs: try a mixed herb pesto
Yogurt: frozen yogurt bark with any leftover berries!
