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.
