In this article, we will present to you a couple of Easy Healthy Weekday Dinners For Busy Vegans!
We know how hectic it can be during the week, and how tired we can all be after work. But if you are someone who is trying to eat healthier and wants to stop surviving on pot noodles and takeaway, you have come to the right place!
Eating healthy and delicious doesn’t have to be a pain in the back, it can be done easily and cheap too! All it really takes is about 30 minutes to an hour of your time to cook, which will normally last you for a couple of days if you cook double the amounts in one go, and you can easily take to work the next day or save them for tomorrow’s dinner. Or even freeze some portions!

Simply warm this brownie in the microwave for 10 seconds, top it up with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream and enjoy!
These Healthy Bars taste very similar to snickers bars although they have no peanuts or caramel. The reason for this is because the dates have got a caramel flavor, and the crunch of the cashews can remind you of snickers. I just love them! And they are so guilt-free.
These Healthy Bites are really quick and easy to make. As the title states, they require no baking. Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, chill for a few minutes in the fridge and then roll them in some coconut and chia seeds. They will keep in the fridge for several days and are so versatile. Take a couple to work as a snack to beat that mid-afternoon slump… pop a few into your gym bag as a post-workout snack… put one into the kids’ lunch box as a healthy treat… you can even eat them as a grab-and-go breakfast on busy mornings
