Today I chat meal prep 101 with Nicole Osinga, a Registered Dietitian practising in Canada who holds a bachelor and master’s degree in human nutrition. To her audience, Nicole is known as the plant-based meal prep expert. She believes in the power of plant-based foods to improve our health and well being. Nicole has also just published an e-book: The Plant-Based Meal Prep Master Plan, which is available on her website. Today's episode starts with Nicole and I chatting about a plant-based lifestyle and its benefits. We talk about how Nicole first got into meal prepping, the priorities she places on meal prep for herself and her clients, where to start if you’re new to meal prepping, what not to do if you want to start meal prepping, how much time and money meal prep can save, how often you should meal prep, Nicole’s favourite meal prep recipes, her hacks to make food last longer, how long you can keep meal prep for, different plant-based alternatives to use in meal prep and, finally, her top tips for turning meat based recipes into plant-based ones.
