.blobContent p { display: block; } -->

If you think you can't eat healthy when you're short on time, meal prepping a week of vegan lunches can help! Meal prepping is budget-friendly, helps you stick to your diet and saves time during the busy week. Eating a vegan diet (or simply eating more plant-based foods) can decrease your risk for heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer.

7-Day Vegan Meal Plan: 1,500 Calories

Research has shown that following a vegan diet, or simply adding more plant-based foods into your daily diet, is a healthy approach to eating that does the body a lot of good. Cutting back on animal products and eating more beans, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds is associated with a decreased risk for diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer. Plus, you may have an easier time losing weight on a vegan diet, thanks to fiber-rich foods, which help you feel full and satisfied throughout the day.

You're best off following a recipe that is vegan to begin with.

What Is Jackfruit and Should You Eat It?

If you've been to a grocery store lately, there's a good chance that you encountered a large, green and spiky fruit sitting next to other tropical produce. It's called a jackfruit and it's something you'll be seeing lots more of. The bulbous fruit can be used for both savory and sweet dishes depending on its ripeness. Because of its size, however, it can be an incredibly intimidating food. Not only can it weigh up to 50 pounds, but it has a thick, green rind surrounding the fleshy inside (luckily, it's also available prepped—in a can or in the refrigerated section).
