Want in on one of my favorite meal discoveries? I’ve been taking some help from Splendid Spoon and am loving the ease it’s giving me for breakfast and lunch.
If you’ve been with me a while, you know that I cook just about every meal EVERY day for me and my family of 5. I love the benefits of home cooked food – fresh ingredients, delicious flavor and healthy nutrition. That’s why I’m so excited to discover Splendid Spoon and their flavorful plant-based meals. Their smoothies, bowls and soups are made just the way I cook for myself with only whole foods and plant-based ingredients.
I plan my Splendid Spoon meals into my meal planjust like I do the rest of my meals. I have found their prepared smoothies, bowls and soups to be the perfect meal solutions for busy days when I have limited time to eat (or meal prep) or when I need something easily portable that I can eat on the go. (Try for yourself here and get $25 off.)
Take a look at some of my favorites from their selections:
Moroccan Spiced Buckwheat
Lemon Wild Rice and Broccoli
This is just a small sample of what they offer. (See more here.) These are the only prepared meals that I purchase and I eat out only about once a week so the convenience of having some ready-made meals to go each week has been such a gift to myself. I’d love you to experience the same! My friends at Splendid Spoon are offering my followers $25 off when you register. Just follow this link for delicious, plant-based meals delivered to your door!

Breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day but so many of us race through it, lucky to get something in the boiler before rushing off for the day. You know I mean business when it comes to meal planning dinner, but I’m just as serious about preparing healthy plant-based breakfasts (and lunches!) for my family.
I remember what used to be the agony and chaos of breakfast. I was a short-order cook, preparing everyone’s personal requests while I packed lunches and got everyone out the door for school. It was exhausting and stressful. There was no planning or prepping. Something had to change…me! Finally, I got smart and developed a few processes for streamlining our breakfast routine.
My latest video shares 5 tips for planning and prepping healthy, plant-based breakfasts, including:
1. Pick only 2-3 options to serve each week.
2. Sync your schedule to your breakfast meal ideas
3. Prep what you can ahead of time.
4. Get the kids involved.
5. Set up your pantry and refrigerator / freezer so that kids can help themselves to foods.
Get more detail and information on these tips in the video below.

Dessert cobbler meets breakfast with this hearty breakfast option. Serve warm over dairy-free yogurt.
Breakfast Tacos and Burritos
Reuse Taco Tuesday leftovers or make a savory filling with breakfast potatoes and tofu scramble. The filling can also be prepped and stored in advance for tacos and burritos all week long.
Smoothies are my new favorite breakfast! I have been alternating them with my green juices in the mornings. As summer nears and the kids start begging me for popsicles, I’ve been inspired to turn my favorite smoothie recipes into pops. Why not? Green smoothie blends are too tasty to restrict to just sipping. It’s easy to pour the sweet and fruity liquid mixes into your favorite molds and freeze for an afternoon or dessert treat. Or why not mix it up even further and enjoy one of these smoothie pops for breakfast? My kids might think I’ve really gone nuts. Ice cream for breakfast? Yes!!
I’ve rounded up a few slurp-worthy smoothie recipes that would taste just as refreshing frozen on a stick as poured in a glass. I dare you to try one for breakfast!
This kale-riffic smoothie by The Blender Girl, Tess Masters, is full of nutrients and flavor! It gets its sweetness naturally from pitted dates. As its name suggests, this blend is perfect for standing in as a popsicle.
Blissful Basil has taken my favorite ice cream and turned it into a powerful protein and health booster. With superfood ingredients like spirulina and hemp seeds, this smoothie would make one powerhouse of a popsicle!
A smoothie named after a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor has to be a popsicle winner! The gals from Veganosity add spinach and hemp seeds to this recipe for a rich and creamy dessert treat that is packed with health benefits.
Who else is eating smoothie popsicles for breakfast?!!
