Ideas for Food Prep:
- Go ahead and pre-wash your salad greens! Make sure you’ve got salad dressings on hand.
- Wash and cut up your carrots and radishes for snacks.
- Clean and chop your leeks so they’re ready to go.
- Consider pre-roasting some of your sweet potatoes or winter squash to have on hand. You can use them to top pizzas, throw in quick curries or add to pasta.
- Go ahead and cook your beans to have them ready to use.
Here are some recipes to try!
BLACK BEANS (you can just sub in cooked dried beans for canned beans):
Note – it’s a myth that adding salt before cooking beans will make them tough. If you season them at the beginning of cooking, they’ll be better seasoned and creamier.

Please read! If a recipe can very easily be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free using simple substitutes like non-dairy spread, vegetable stock, gluten free pasta, gluten free soy sauce or a small amount of gluten free flour, or by leaving out an ingredient, I’ve coded them with that in mind. If they include things like mayonnaise, eggs, milk, honey or large quantities of flour, I haven’t coded them as such. I don’t have experience using things like egg substitute, non-dairy cheese or subbing in gluten-free flours. Please double check the ingredients for your own safety!
