MEAL PREP VEGAN BREAKFAST RECIPS ‣‣ healthy make ahead meals


(light music) – Hi friends, welcome to my channel. If you’re new here, my name is Alyssa. Today I have got three
delicious breakfast recipes all of which can be either
made ahead or meal prepped, which I guess, now that I’m
saying that, is the same thing. So these are meal prep
friendly, they are gluten free, they are vegan, they are so
delicious, and hopefully they’re a little bit interesting
and fun for you, too. I’m excited to be partnering
up with my friends at Thrive Market to
bring you today’s video. You guys know I love Thrive Market, talk about them every single month. This month we are using a
ton of the things that I buy to stock my pantry, things
like oats, quinoa, you name it, I always stock my pantry
with Thrive, and we’re using a bunch of their own Thrive
Market brand products. So make sure to check the description box for the recipes and ingredients,
and if you aren’t already a member of Thrive Market,
you can get 25% off your first order plus
free shipping on orders over 49 dollars, and a free 30 day trial by clicking the link that
is right below this video. So if you’re planning to make an order, definitely make sure
that you click that link so that you can take
advantage of the savings, and make sure to stay tuned
to the end of the video ’cause I’ll talk a little bit more about how I personally use Thrive Market, and I’ll give you a
little behind the scenes and show you how you can
filter and all that good stuff. So, without further ado, let’s go ahead and dive into our recipes, and then I’ll see you on the other side. For our butternut squash bowls, we’re gonna start with our quinoa. So we’re gonna use Thrive
Market brand quinoa, which is toasted and so good. Add that into a pan
along with some cinnamon and almond milk, and you’ll
just throw that together, and then bring it to a boil, and cook this like you would normally
quinoa, so bring it to a boil, cover it, and then let it
cook for 15 minutes or so. Once it’s cooked, you can
remove it from the heat and just give it a quick stir
that it gets nice and fluffy, and then set that aside while we move on to the butternut squash. So for the butternut squash, we’re gonna add some
coconut oil into a pan. You could also use avocado oil, whatever kind of oil you want, and then you’ll add in some
cubed butternut squash. Toss that together, kind of
saute it for a minute or so, and then we’ll season
it with some cinnamon and some maple syrup, and again, stir that together until
everything is coated, and then I like to add
in a splash of water, and this helps to kind of steam it, and you’ll add in your water, and then you’ll just cover this and let the squash steam
for about 15 minutes or so until it is fork tender. Once it is fork tender
you are ready to assemble, and again, this can be made
ahead and just assembled as is and heat it up at work if you want. So we’re gonna do some of the quinoa, and then we’ll do a
dollop of coconut yogurt, which tastes so good
with this combination. it adds a nice coolness and creaminess, some of that caramelized butternut squash, finish it off with some coconut
flakes, some hemp seeds, and you’re ready to dig in. I love eating this cold,
it’s also, of course, it’s good warm, but it’s
actually quite good cold, and if you aren’t a fan
of butternut squash, you could totally do sweet
potato if you wanted, you could do apples,
either way, it is so good. It’s a really great way
to get in some sweetness without adding fruit if
you’re trying to limit your fruit intake, and it’s
just kind of like a creative, fun, delicious, high fiber,
tasty breakfast bowl. Let’s make the banana granola, and what’s great about this
granola is that you can get everything on Thrive Market
except for the bananas, and all of it is the Thrive Market brand. So we’re gonna start with our bananas, and you’re gonna add
three bananas into a bowl, and make sure they’re extra ripe, and then just mash them up until they’re as smooth as possible. From there, we will add in some tahini, and you could also use cashew
butter or almond butter or peanut butter if you wanted, but this is a way to
make the recipe oil free as well as maple syrup
which is our sweetener, and you’ll just stir this all together until it is completely
smooth and combined. Then, set that aside, and we’ll move on to the dry ingredients, which
are gluten free rolled oats as well as some chopped up walnuts, some cinnamon, and that’s it. Just stir it all together, you could also season
it with a little salt, but it’s fine as is. Stir it
together until it’s combined, and then add in your
banana mixture, and again, just stir this together
until all of those oats are coated with the banana,
and it’s gonna be kind of like a sticky dough-ish type consistency, and then you will transfer
it on to a baking sheet and just evenly spread it out
with your spoon or spatula, and we will bake this for about 45 minutes until it is nice and
crunchy and golden brown. Don’t forget to check out
the blog post down below which has the full cooking instructions, and then once you’re
all nice and cooked up, you can remove it from the oven, it should be really nice and crispy. What I love about this granola is that it’s also really clustery. You can see this gorgeous
clusters right there. And then you can serve
this however you’d like. You can eat a bowl of it,
you get to put it on top of smoothie bowls, you could add it into a chia pudding type thing,
you can use it as a snack. Granola is just so
versatile, it’s so delicious, and this one is also crazy
simple to make, which I adore. For our chia parfaits, we’re
gonna start with the chia base, so we’re gonna add some
almond milk and chia seeds as well as a little bit
of maple syrup together, and you’ll just stir this
together and then set it aside and let it sit and gel up which takes about 15 minutes or so. While that’s sitting, we’re
gonna make our next layer, which is a banana, cacao
powder, almond butter, and a little bit of almond milk, and then you’ll blend
that up until it’s smooth. Pour that into a bowl,
add in your chia seeds, and then stir it together, and again, we’re gonna set this
aside and let it gel up. And then our final layer
is just going to be mashed up raspberries. So you’ll just add
raspberries into a little bowl and mash them up, and
then we can just assemble our parfaits. So we’re gonna do a layer of
the chocolate on the bottom, and then we’ll do a layer
of that chia pudding, and then finish it off with
a layer of the raspberry. And to garnish, I love finishing this with some coconut flakes
and some cacao nibs, and it is so good, it tastes like dessert, and it is packed with plant based protein. It’s so flavorful, and you
guys are gonna love it. And there you have it my friends. I hope you enjoyed today’s
video, can’t wait to hear which ones you end up
making, I love the granola. I have that on constant rotation
in my house, it is so good. The parfaits are something that might look a little bit fancy, but
they are so simple to make, and they taste delicious. Again, all of these
are meal prep friendly, so you can keep them at
least a week in the fridge. They taste delicious, they are healthy, they are plant based,
they are gluten free, they are all the things
that I know you guys love. So make sure to get the recipes
down in the description box, and like I mentioned, I also
want to just share quickly how you can navigate
Thrive Market’s website to suit your dietary preferences, which is one of my favorite features. So if you go on to Thrive’s website, you will be able to filter
by pretty much everything that you want to find,
whether you’re looking for a specific diet
type, like gluten free, raw, vegan, paleo, you can search that. You can also filter by the type
of thing you’re looking for, so maybe it’s baking
supplies, maybe it’s candy, maybe it’s granola bars,
maybe it’s breakfast items. You can also filter that way,
and they also offer a ton of natural household cleaning products, and home products, products for your pets, they also have a wine section
now, so it’s pretty much a one stop shop for
everything non-perishable. So if you’re ready to go
shopping, which I’m sure you are, make sure to click the link
that is in the description box because that will get you
25% off your first order, plus you will get free
shipping on 49 dollars or more, and you will get a free 30 day trial. So you’re getting savings
on top of savings, and they’re throwing in a
little extra bonuses for you. So definitely make sure
to take advantage of that. Thanks to Thrive for

them on a monthly basis, so expect to see lots
more from them this year. Like I mentioned, the links are down below if you need anything,
