Dear Vegan at Heart,
Today your mission is to schedule a time every week for meal planning.
Remember that lovely feeling of coming home to nothing in the fridge? With a little planning, this will happen less and less often. And it doesn't take much time to plan. In fact, you'll end up saving yourself time (and money) in the end. This habit comes in handy especially when newcomers to plant-based living are confronted with a fear of scarcity. With a little forethought and preparation, you'll feel more abundance.
Here’s one way to plan your meals:
A little note on canvas bags: not only are canvas bags easier to carry but they won't leave permanent toxins in the environment. Not many people realize that plastic molecules NEVER BREAK DOWN in the environment! They become a toxic part of the life cycle and can find their way into the food chain, concentrating in the fatty flesh of cows, pigs, chickens and fish and even in human breast milk. Awesome.
Happy meal planning!
