(NEOURISH PREP #1) PREPARING WITH THE ESSENTIALS:

Batch preparing with whole foods, ripe fruits, and vegetables at hand makes meal prepping for your busy week a smooth ride.

As vegetarians and plant-based eaters there are certain staples to have on hand that will make living wholistically a whole lot easier. Of course choose what fits your needs and your taste buds.

(NEOURISH PREP #2 BATCH COOKING, SOAKING AND FREEZING METHODS

Soaking:
Soaking legumes at least 12 hours prior to cooking comes with many nutritional benefits, including increased digestibility and nutritional intake.

Batch cooking:
The night before meal preparation, we typically soak a batch of chickpeas, lentils and beans. This provides quicker preparation of meals for the weeks ahead.

Freezing:
For fruits that have gone ripe and cooked legumes that we aren’t using right away, we love to place the extra portions in the freezer. The nourishment stays intact and this method provides quick access to breakfast smoothies, spreads, dips and a variety of meals for the month.

NEOURISH PREP #3 PICK A DAY AND STICK WITH IT.

Minimize time in the kitchen by choosing one day you can commit few hours to prepare your ingredients for the week.
