This is Lien, the Vegan Meal Prep Sunday founder.

Meal prepping was the solution to my struggle of wanting to eat nutritious vegan meals, without spending lots of money or hours in the kitchen. The latter, not because I don’t like cooking… It’s quite the contrary! I consider myself a passionate cook, but when my career became increasingly demanding, I struggled to find time.

Meal prep benefits

Since starting meal prep in 2015, it has become an integral part of my weekly routine. Meal prep now not only saves me money and time and helps me to eat more nutritious meals.

It also helps me find peace of mind, by being able to go about my work days without having to decide which meals to buy or cook. Experiencing more peace of mind has been a meal prep health benefit, which I have come to appreciate tremendously!

Lastly, by opting to prep vegan-style, I’m happy to contribute to reducing the extensive suffering of animals and the environmental degradation, which is the consequence of the animal agriculture industry!

How Vegan Meal Prep Sunday was born

On the 1st of April of 2018, I started an Instagram page called Vegan Meal Prep Sunday. You can read my first post here. Initially, the page was a record of my weekly meal preps to inspire others on their meal prep journeys. As the page grew, I also shared vegan recipes which were suitable for meal prep and other tips and tricks.

In 2019, I realised how passionate I was about helping others eat more nutritious vegan meals in an empowering way.

With the help of my software genius partner, Dinesh (I’m not biased), I embarked on building Vegan Meal Prep Sunday into the online resource it is today. We’re dedicated to help you feel empowered to eat nutritious vegan meals, the meal prep way. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the most incredible team
