Best of Beans Meal Plan

Want to make eating a whole food, nutrient-dense, primarily plant-based diet with healthy fats the new normal? Our meal plans can help. For the week ahead, we have another delicious pasta dish, our version of a (non-) meatloaf and one of the tastiest kale salads yet. We’ll continue to add to our Health Starts Here recipes so you won’t have to make the same thing twice in any week — unless you want to. Serves 1

Keep in Mind

  • Nutritional yeast makes a great substitute for Parmesan cheese.

  • Sweeten up breakfast or dessert with fresh and dried fruits (especially berries), fruit juice, single-strength concentrates and purées (like applesauce) and coconut water.

Breakfast Tip: You can also add a small green smoothie or fruit smoothie as a filling addition to any breakfast.

Lunch Tip: Look for the Health Starts Here logo at your local Whole Foods Market in the prepared foods section. There are some great options in the case for quick meals to go. When you see the logo you know that each dish is plant-strong™, nutrient-dense and made from whole foods and healthy fats.

Snack Tip: Fresh fruit is a great snack — morning, afternoon and evening.

Dinner Tip: Frozen vegetables are a huge time-saver and are quite tasty; always keep your freezer stocked with your favorites.


Batch cooking day: Start the week by batch cooking and storing meals in grab-and-go serving containers. This saves precious time during the week for all meals.
