I’ve rounded up vegan breakfasts, lunches/dinners, and snacks in here from a few of my favorite bloggers. Some of the recipes use the slow cooker or Instant Pot to efficiently make large batches that will last you for several meals.

Successful meal prep comes down to planning. And not shopping on an empty stomach. 😛 I hope these recipes will give you some meal prep ideas for the weeks ahead.
