Instant Pot Colcannon

Last weekend, on Meal Prep Day, I had chili for lunch. With enough leftover for at least two suppers. I also had potatoes that needed using up. And I had a whole cabbage, so I figured colcannon might be a good idea. Now, I never made – or, in fact, even had – that before,…

Instant Pot Chili

Today is meal prep day again. So far, I cooked chickpeas, made two batches of hummus, a bottle of iced tea and a nice pot of vegan chili. I seriously love chili and could eat it every day. It’s one of my samefoods. My chili is made with dried red kidney beans, because why spend…

How to: Instant Pot Beans

When you’re eating a (mostly) plant based diet, beans are probably one of your staples. They’re very affordable and generally considered a good source of protein – though plant proteins are incomplete and harder for the human body to process than animal proteins. This need not be a problem however, as long as you make…

The perfect meal plan (part 1)

I’ll be honest. I suck at meal planning. It’s a right pain in the arse. All those wonderful meal plans and recipes you find online… I want that too. I love cooking and am good at it, so why can’t I do that? It shouldn’t be hard. And yet it is. It’s incredibly hard. No…

Oven Roasted Veggies

I love oven roasted veggies and almost always make them during a meal prep session as they are easy, tasty and versatile. They’re so easy, I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I also won’t be giving you exact amounts, because that really depends on what you want and how much you’ll be…

Meal Prep January 2020

No energy, no shopping done. I had to make do with what I still had in the house. But I still wanted to do my weekly meal prep. Let’s jump right in, shall we? First things first. I wrote a list. I soaked 1 cup of white beans overnight. The next morning I got out…

Cheat prep

When your fridge and your cupboards are empty, when most of your spoons have been used up, but you still have to eat… That’s when you have no choice but to cheat. You could order take-out. If money allows. Personally, I don’t like to order take-out. It’s expensive, and because of my dietary restrictions, my…

Five minutes

When preparing an entire meal seems too daunting a task, you’ve got other options. Order take-out. Expensive, and usually not all that healthy, but it’s an option. Heat up a freezer meal. With some luck, you’ve even got a couple of home-made meals in your freezer. Make a sandwich. Not very nourishing, but at least…

To prep, or not to prep

… that is the question. Whether it’s nobler to prep and suffer under the pressure of your knives and spoons, or take arms against a kitchen full of food… I’m kidding. But then again, I’m not. If you’re anything like me, you’ve watched dozens – if not hundreds – of those meal prep videos, where…
