Vegan Meal Prep How-To: 3 Easy Budget-Friendly Recipes

So dinnertime is usually the most difficult when it comes to coming up with delicious and nutritious meals, especially when you’re transitioning to plant-based, because, let’s face it at the end of the day, we’re all exhausted, and the last thing we want to do is figure out.

What to make it can be a lot more challenging than simply blending a smoothie for breakfast or chopping a salad for lunch. So we’re going to share our formula for success with you guys and dive into an indian inspired dish, mexican and an asian dish. So we’re going around the world today in minutes before we jump into the meal prep formula you’ll want to make sure that you’ve readed our recent plant-based pyramid, article it’ll kind of lay out the hierarchy of each different food group and give you ideas for how to Incorporate an abundance of variety into your meals, so it might be helpful to grab out a pen and paper or your phone and kind of write out everything to get it on paper to help you organize your recipes and your meal prep for the week to build A perfect plate or a perfect meal for your prep, you will want to include a grain, a legume, a veggie, a healthy fat source and a spice or maybe a handful of spices.

Next is the prep. This is the hard work, but in our case it was very, very easy and it took up virtually no time. I think we prepped all of this food that you see here in less than like 45 minutes. So it comes down to rinsing your grains and cooking them down. We put the rice in this big pot. We put our lentils in a small frying pan, we put our beans actually in our pressure cooker and we put our potatoes into our air fryer.

So our first recipe is going to be this delicious asian stir-fry. For this recipe, our grain is brown rice, our legume is edamame, our veggies are a mixed, stir-fry medley, our healthy fat is peanuts and sesame, and our spice or seasoning is just a little bit of liquid amino and, if you’re wondering why we made so much brown Rice, it’s actually going in all three recipes. So again, food prep hacks meal, prep number two for the week is a mexican inspired chipotle burrito bowl.

So again, like dusty said we are using our brown rice as a base for all three recipes. So our grain is brown rice from the beans and legumes category. We decided to go with black beans and veggies are going to be air, fried sweet, potato sauteed, red bell, pepper, frozen, sweet corn and then we’ve got avocado for our fat and our spice is cumin recipe. Number three, and possibly one of my favorite meals of all time, even when we go out to dinner, this is a indian curry.

Aloo gobi is probably what you’re going to see on the menu seriously my favorite meal, our grain for this category is going to be brown rice again. Our beans and legumes are going to be red, lentils, chickpeas and green peas are veggies. We have cooked, yellow potatoes and some frozen cauliflower. You can obviously use fresh. We just wanted to save time on this one. Our healthy fat is actually going to be some coconut cream.

This stuff lasts a few days in the fridge we buy that canned in our spice. It’s curry powder for our asian stir-fry. We used both frozen edamame and a frozen vegetable medley. A lot of people are concerned. Should I use frozen or is fresh, better and a lot of times frozen is more nutritious because vegetables and fruits are picked when ripe, so the nutrients are really locked in so don’t be afraid of frozen, and the same goes for beans if cooking dry beans is Simply too much work for you to be honest, a lot of times we do opt for cans, because it’s a lot more convenient.

All we recommend is that you search for organic and beef recommend that you search for organic as well as bpa-free cans. So our last step is to mix all of our ingredients together and cook them down. Then you can either pop them in the refrigerator for the week you can eat them cold right out of the refrigerator a lot of times. We don’t even reheat our leftovers. You can cook them all pop them in the freezer, so you can have them on hand say when you get home from a vacation and you just don’t want to cook or like when I had max and I simply was in bed with him.

24 7.. I didn’t feel like cooking. It was nice to have those freezer meals on hand. Okay, can we vlog, in this professional style, shoot we’re going to vlog a little look at these bad boys done? All we have left to do is dish, and we don’t have to cook for the week, which is amazing, that’s the best part, no cooking for days. It’s all been done, and it’s only taken like I don’t know, maybe an hour and a half honestly.

All that we want to do is be outside in the evenings, and this has helped us to free up our evenings to be able to do that. Totally we’re going to dish it up and finish it up. Okay! So now we’re going to plate each of our dinners, i’m going to start with the stir fry because that’s kind of what i’ve been craving lately. So i’m going to put a whole bunch of rice in this dish, and the nice thing about having no oil in any of these recipes and adding in your healthy fats separately gives you all of the control in the world.

So, especially if you’re trying to lose weight on a plant-based diet, the fact that there is no oil means that these are higher volume meals with lower amounts of calories. They’re going to fill you up without weighing you down. Next, i’m going to dish up our indian curry dusty said: that’s the one he’s most excited for dish up a generous helping of this amazing looking curry and, of course, wouldn’t be the stanzas if we didn’t have a handful of taters on the plate.

In fact, i’ll probably add some to my stir fry too. Finally, i’m just going to add a dollop of our coconut cream. Last but not least burrito bowls. So again, we’ve got our brown rice going to add in some black beans, air fried sweet potatoes. These have been my jam. They are so so good red bell, peppers, add in a little bit of corn here, slice up some avocado or you can also make guacamole there. You have it you guys.

We’ve got an asian, an indian and a mexican dinner for the entire week cannot wait to dig in. If you want to bulk up any of these recipes, you can add tofu to your stir fry. You can add a gluten-free dairy-free naan bread with your curry. You can also add a corn or flour tortilla to your chipotle style bowl.

Stay at Home (Earn a Passive Income)

Do you want to stay at home and earn a passive income, and this is what earning a passive income can look at now, you’re saying well, why would I want to go to the beach and have my computer? Well, you couldn’t go to the beach without your computer once you’ve gotten to the point where you’re earning that passive income – or you can just take your work with you wherever you want and that’s the nice thing about working online, you don’t have to be stuck in An office you don’t have to suck at your house, you can take it anywhere.

You want with you not that I advocate working 24/7, but isn’t that a nice little quirk when you work from home from your computer, so I just thought that picture kind of pulled. It all together we’re going to talk about affiliate marketing today, and I want you to stick around because it’s not there’s different ways. You can do affiliate marketing and it’s one of the easiest ways to turn it into a passive income, because basically you’re setting up systems you’re, setting up a system to build a customer base.

You’re setting up a system where you communicate with them through automated sequenced emails and you’re, building up a system of products that you know that people want that solve problems for them and it’s all set up on the computer. It takes time there is a training below 30-day training that helps you to start understanding that and start putting those systems in place. Everybody starts from somewhere.

If you don’t know anything, that’s okay, that training will help you. Now, if you decide you want that training. I have a free pre training that kind of helps warm you up before. You start the intense 30 day training so make sure you take advantage of that as well cuz. I know when I did it. I knew nothing. I went in there cold turkey. I didn’t know anything about affiliate marketing. I didn’t know anything about having a business online and I learned so much I was so excited, but part of my problem was there was so much to learn a lot of those terms weren’t familiar, so that’s why I made that pre training so that it is Familiar to you when you’re going to go, oh okay, I understand these things and it kind of will help be fast-track a little bit through your training all right.

So what are we going to talk about? Affiliate marketing, like I said, is the best way to earn a passive income and with what is affiliate marketing affiliate marketing is when you take somebody else’s product and you sell it for them, and you might say I hate sales. I don’t want to sell things. I’ve already done the vacuum, cleaner thing and the you know door-to-door sales and all that remember anybody that you’re my age.

You probably remember all those things. It’s not like that. You can learn how to set up things that stay in place: they’re evergreen and once you find those products that people want they’re out there forever. I use YouTube. Actually, here we are, this, article will be there forever and if people are looking for ways to earn income as long as the ways that I have listed are still out there, I will leave these articles up and continue to help people figure out what they want To do – and I don’t have to keep going back and repeating myself if that makes sense, and I’ve even put them into a playlist.

So if you click the link below for the playlist, every article has three different ways: you can earn money. This one in particular, though, has one because affiliate marketing is really what’s near and dear to my heart, because I definitely want to go for passive income. So that’s why I chose to market affiliate marketing and I don’t have to create products. I’ve done that where I’ve done the shows where I’ve made crafts items and I went out and sold them.

So I love to sell things. I’ve done eBay, Craigslist, all those things, but I had to produce the product. I had to come up with something to sell. So that’s why I love affiliate marketing online because I can sell other people’s products now, let’s start over here we’re going to get to that article. In a moment, I talked about YouTube and I want to show you how you promote the products using a YouTube article and I’ll use that one in a moment, but where do I go to find the products where you go Amazon Associates has billions of products you Can sign up as an Amazon associate and start promoting products? Now they do have a six month trial period, where you have to sell at least three items to stay with them as an associate, and it’s just their way of cleaning house what if somebody came along, they signed up and they just checked it out.

They’re, like I don’t want to do this. Well then their accounts, it’s there forever and ever so. Amazon has set up a thing where, if you haven’t sold at least three items in six months, then they just close your account and if you decide hey, I changed my mind. I want to put more effort into it. I want to come back. You get approved again, it’s not a big deal, it’s just a way for them to clean up all those dead accounts kind of like what your bank does.

If you don’t use your savings account, they start charging your money that Amazon doesn’t charge. You, though, all right, so you can go at now. I will say some of the products only earned 7 to 11 percent, but that’s okay. It’s a great way to get started a great way to find products and start learning how to do it and Amazon. Everybody goes to Amazon right, so you’ve got an audience already now. The neat thing I like about Amazon once you get, what happens? Is you’ll go in you’ll sign up as an affiliate and they’ll give you special links and I might say: well I want to sell camera equipment and things that are related to that.

Maybe I have an interest in photography and I love all the equipment things and I want to make a website about that about how to be a photographer. Well then, I can find products that match my website about different equipment and I can have an affiliate link and people will click it and when they buy it, I get a commission now, do you have to have a website? No, you can have what we call a sales funnel instead and if you click below into that 30-day training, you’ll learn about that sales funnel and how to build it.

But people have websites as well. So that’s how you make money now! This is the thing: that’s cool about Amazon. If somebody comes along and clicks my link when they go yeah, I like that camera, but that’s not the one. I want I’m going to start exploring and looking at other cameras and you’re like well darn it they didn’t use my link. Well, they did. Amazon will still give you credit if that person purchases, something within.

I think it’s the next 24 hours it could be 48 hours, but if that person, purchases other things and start shopping, you get a commission on all of it because you’re the one that brought them to the site. So that’s pretty cool now. Another place that you can go is Clickbank. Clickbank has everything? Let’s get rid of that page? Okay, when you go in, you can look under featured products or you can look under over here on the left different categories.

So let’s go under health and fitness, that’s always an easy one. You can go under health and fitness and look for products that you might want to sell, maybe you’re really into health and fitness. You might be into cooking recipes things like that, and you want to help people to become the best version of themselves that they can. So you just start again a website or sales funnel, and you start promoting content that is related to that and then start offering different products.

Now, I’m talking about a lot of things like email, marketing, content things that you’re like whoa whoa whoa. All of that is in that 30-day training, so it explains it there. Is it an educational period to this? You can’t just jump in if you don’t know anything and start making lots of money. You have to learn. So I’m not going to lie to you it like. Oh, my gosh you’re, going to make money by tomorrow.

You’re not you have to learn how to do it, but let’s go into health and fitness down here and there’s all kinds: there’s diet and weight loss exercise. Fitness mental health, beauty, so there’s all these different areas, you can go into, let’s go into diet and weight loss, and so here there will be all kinds of different products that you can sign up for as an affiliate okay. Under there, oh, they went in again.

Okay, so, anyway, let me look here: let’s go up here to their menu. There we go, we want to be in their affiliate market place, that’s where we want to be the bright things weren’t popping up for me: okay, here’s the categories! This is what I was looking for this page sorry about that all right: let’s go back down to health and fitness and it will bring up some different products that you can promote.

If you choose now there also, when you look at the product, one of the things you want to look at is this gravity score, see that GRA V right here, the higher that that grab a score is the more that that products been selling. It’s been very popular, see this one flat belly fix flat belly fix, it has a 209 I remember coming in here, and it only had like a hundred and it keeps going up. But this is interesting.

The Cinderella solution has bypassed it’s. Both of them are reasonable prices – thirty, nine dollars, thirty three dollars and you’ll make a commission off of that. So in what this person will do, when you go in there, they will provide you with all the information that you need to sell the product. They’ll give you copyright they’ll, give you pictures they’ll, give you articles everybody’s, different and they’ll.

Say here: go sell my product because it’s a win-win situation. The person getting the product product wins because you help solve a problem. You get a commission for bringing it to their attention, so you’re, happy and the the seller is happy because you’re selling the product for them. So it’s it’s a really good thing for all three of you, it’s win-win-win! So that’s another place that you can go.

You can also go to JV zoo, JV zoo, I’m not going to go inside, but JV zoo sells digital products, so everybody’s always trying to learn something so go in there and you can find different. Somebody might have a whole program on having the right mindset for health and fitness, and you can promote that as well. Now the key is, if you decide to get into affiliate marketing, you want to stay within a certain niche, which means you keep hearing me say: health and fitness, health and fitness.

Everything has to be related. You don’t want to just go willy-nilly and go. Oh. Here’s a bunch of products from Amazon, because people want to start to see you as an expert and so they’re going to say wow. She really knows her stuff. She really knows about health and fitness, I’m going to trust her when she starts promoting and suggesting this other product and that’s what starts to happen. They get to know you like you and trust you and that’s when they buy from you.

Here’s another cool affiliate program. I actually offered it on in one of the other articles, but you can become a travel agent affiliate, so you can go into Expedia as an example and work for them as the affiliate promote their vacation. They might say: hey we’re, really trying to promote this occasion to roam and here’s all the stuff. Can you go out put this on your blog put this on your website, wherever whatever platform you’re using or your sales funnel and you’ll, learn how to do that in that 30-day training you promote it and bring people in, and when you sell it, you get a Commission, so I think I just recently have seen that, but travel agents affiliate program that would be so much fun, especially if you’d like to travel now some people, let me get rid of that there – some people like to create their own courses, it’s called digital course.

Digital marketing and they will go out and create their own courses and sell them. Okay, where does affiliate marketing come in you as an affiliate? Marketer can go in and sell those courses for them, so that may be what you’re interested in is helping people become an affiliate, marketer and selling courses for other affiliate, other marketers other people who build courses. So this one is Kevin David.

He last year, I think, brought in ten million dollars, he’s really big. He is an affiliate marketer, but he also makes his own courses, so he sells his own courses and then he has affiliates come in and sell them for him and a lot of times. I think his are 25 percent, most people who make courses offer 50 percent, so I don’t know why his are so low. I just pulled him up because he’s pretty popular, but most people will offer you 50 %.

Another place that you can start if you would like to become an affiliate. Clickfunnels has an affiliate program, they’re huge, it’s a software platform where people make sales funnels and again that’s where you can learn in that 30 days, how to do it, but they also have an affiliate program. So all the different programs and training that they offer, which are down here at the bottom – let’s see, what do we promote? They promote click funnels itself.

So when people sign up for click funnels, you as an affiliate would make 40 % off that sale. They have lots of different training that they offer dot books that they offer experts secant seekers, some secrets. Here’s one here funnel script, software I think it sells. For around 500, you make 40 percent, so here’s another one freelancer secrets and create your lap type life. This is a lot of training that is being sold and I think it sells out people pay $ 49 a month to stay in that group, and then you make a commission off of that to get people to join that group.

So that’s pretty cool. A lot of people are doing that they’re, making membership groups for people to sign up, for and in this case, Julia choice and she actually has affiliate, sell her membership so that they can come in for $ 49 a month. So that’s pretty cool! You can learn how to do that. I will put the link below it’s called bootcamp affiliate bootcamp, but you if you want to go in there and play around and look around the the bee and the bootcamp is free.

It’s there’s no charge for you to become an affiliate and for you to take advantage of the training to be in that bootcamp and this particular bootcamp even offers you a car. If you get a hundred Philly’its to sign up for click funnels, they give you a payment for car every month. So when you see people saying I’ve won a car, that’s how they did it by getting customers into the click funnels account.

Alright, and basically I told you at the beginning of the article, how do I promote myself? You have to have a sales funnel or a web page. You have to have a storefront. I say this in every single article. You can’t just go on Facebook and try to sell things. That’s called spamming. People don’t want. You know that yourself. When people start Facebook messaging you and popping things up all over the internet.

You you pretty much, that’s annoying! You you get away from them, but you might find somebody. This is Heather Peterson, Rachel, Peterson and Rachel does a lot of social media management. She runs an agency for social media management, so you may have an affiliate program. Let’s say you get into affiliate marketing and you want to be on several platforms. Well, it’s very difficult to find the time to be on all those platforms.

It’s actually not suggested that you do that, but maybe you’re getting to the point where you’ve been doing this for a while you’re on five or six different platforms. Well, you would hire someone like her they’ll go in and actually manage those platforms for you. But how does she promote herself she’s got a article here called how to get comfortable on camera. That has nothing to do with her business, but it does have something to do with YouTube.

A lot of people that are in social media marketing want to be comfortable on camera. They want to be comfortable, doing lives and things so she’s, providing them some content. Now, if you go down here under her article, where it says more, this is where people click and they find out what else she has to offer. So here she says, get my free resources for social media tips right right here and you can click right there.

You can also go down and she might say, offer some other things. Um down here, get her free sheet cheat sheet how’d. It go viral on purpose, so there’s all kinds of different things that you can sign up for and that’s how she’s promoting herself once you get that free cheat sheet, she’s going to say. Oh now, I might offer you some training that I have and things like that. So that’s how it works. You don’t really go out there and blast what you have you kind of offer some free content and then offer things below that.

So I I know that was a lot I got wordy. I tried to go fast. I know I don’t like to say if you’re still here. Thank you by the way. I truly want to. Thank you. I didn’t mean to make that such a long article, but I really I really really want to give you the resources that you need and some basic information. Let you know what it takes to get into affiliate marketing and, like I said, there’s a playlist below there’s the bootcamp and the 30 day training.

If you want to dig in and really start to see what it takes to start building your business, all right, we’ll stop there and again. Thank you for hanging in there to the end here.
