It Doesn't Have To Be Difficult!
Happy hump day to ya! I hope that your week is coming along nicely. One the thing things I hear quite a bit from people when talking about vegan living is that they think it will be too hard. What do you eat, is a question I STILL surprisingly get!
So, for those of you that are thinking about adopting a plant-based lifestyle, there is no need to be overwhelmed. For the most part, you can continue to enjoy most of the meals you currently enjoy sans animal products. I often speak of "veganizing" your favorite dishes because I find it's a surefire way to help you be successful along your journey. There is no need to stress out and over-think things. You also don't need to be a chef and make elaborate meals (unless of course you want to).
I made the pictured black beans and brown rice dish and it couldn't have been easier! I sauteed the beans in a pan with some yellow onion for extra flavor and then added it to some brown rice. I wanted some greens in the dish, so I just added Trader Joe's "Power to the Greens" mix on top along with some chunky salsa and nutritional yeast flakes. The other great thing about this dish is that I made enough brown rice and black beans to last a few days, so all I have to do is heat up the leftovers!
So, thinking simple and planning ahead can certainly take you far on this plant-based path! If you would like more personalized help and meal planning, be sure to check out my services page! Remember to keep it simple!
