Vegan Meals In Minutes: Pizza

In this segment of Vegan Meals In Minutes, I wanted to talk to you about one of my all-time favorite foods (errr, food groups?) and that’s pizza!

Once I transitioned from a vegetarian lifestyle to a vegan one, I missed the convenience (and grease) of pizza delivery, as well as its ease and accessibility.

Vegan Meals In Minutes: Bowls

We’re all pressed for time, but a simply prepared bowl made with fresh, well-seasoned whole foods can be a delicious and satisfying meal. With minimal prep, you can eat this way every day and never eat the same bowl twice!

There’s no one way to make vegan bowls, but I like at least half to be vegetables. and the rest divided between grains and legumes. Add in an optional fermented food, and top with a savory, bright sauce, and you can have a ridiculously enjoyable vegan meal in just a few minutes.
