Easy vegan mea prep ideas! What I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on a busy day 🙂 Plus seeing LADY GAGA in real life!
↠ For the Vegan Chocolate Overnight Oats:
I used about 3/4 cup organic quick cooking oats, around 2 tbsp of cacao powder, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp of raisins, a pinch of salt, and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Add 1.5 cups of unsweetened almond milk and stir well.
Refridgerate overnight and in the morning top with vegan yogurt, banana slices, berries, cacao nibs... almond butter. I change it up all the time 🙂
↠ NOTE: This is not a sweet recipe. Cacao is quite bitter so if you want to taste more chocolatey you will need to add more maple on top like I usually do or add more sweet fruits like cherries and raisins until it tastes good to you.
You can also add more cacao or chia seeds if you like. This is a really flexible recipe.

↠ Quinoa Salad base
- handful of almonds
- handful of pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 1/3 cup store bought olive tapenade
- handful of fresh parsley
- a few handfuls of spinach
Pulse in food processor until coarsely chopped and add to cooked quinoa. I do about 2 cups of dry quinoa according to package directions, season with salt and pepper, and let it cool slightly (This several portions for the week ahead)
Combine everything in a bowl and add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Taste and add more nuts or sun-dried tomatoes or spices as desired. Sometimes I'll add in some vegan parmesan cheese, roasted red peppers, or a handful of golden raisins...the possibilities are endless 🙂
Store leftovers in the fridge and have a side dish, with salad, with roasted veggies, or in burritos throughout the week. So easy and delicious!
