You may be wondering where in the world to begin. Our plant-based starter kits are a great way to begin because they include a book, a set of DVD lectures from Dr. Neal Barnard, and a folder full of helpful literature from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

How it works

We’ve worked hard to make this as easy as possible, choosing recipes that don’t require a lot of time or specialty ingredients. Hopefully, you will find that planning and making healthy plant-based meals is much easier than you imagined it would be.

Below, there are three lists:

  1. Breakfast Options
  2. Lunch/Dinner Options
  3. Snacks & Desserts

I encourage you to plan for lunches to be leftovers from dinner. That’s what we do at my house, and it works great whether you pack lunch or eat at home.

Simply choose one recipe from each of the categories every day to plan your meals. Once you choose a recipe, click on it to see the details. There is a ‘Jump to Recipe’ button at the top of each page that will automatically scroll you down to the bottom where the recipe card is with ingredients, measurements, instructions, and even a print button.

Your tip of the day is to plan for leftovers. It really simplifies meal planning when lunch is as easy as heating up leftovers from the night before.

These recipes are purposefully simple. We’re trying to make sure that anyone can prepare these dishes without needing a lot of experience in the kitchen.
