Easy Meal Examples

Read: OREOs dipped in peanut butter. Just kidding.

Let’s be honest. When we come home from work, we’re not about to dive into a multi-stage, fancy meal creation process. We’re already hungry, and we’re just looking for the quickest, easiest option for a healthy dinner. That’s my focus here. These are some examples of (mostly) well-balanced, vegan meals my boyfriend and I have thrown together.

(Okay, my boyfriend is usually the thrower-together of these delicious meals. He makes the most amazing dishes when he wings it! Not fair!)
