Vegan weight loss meal prep for one week or 6 days: 12 healthy plant based weight loss meals prepared in under 1 hour (gluten free, oil free).
One of the biggest obstacles for weight loss is not having a plan!
Can you relate to some of the following scenarios?
You think you are eating healthy but somehow you still have health issues. Or you just can’t lose weight. You actually go to the gym, but still seem to achieve NOTHING. You actually don’t even know what is healthy anymore, or what real weight loss recipes look like. Do you choose low carb, low calorie, low fat?
The first step of successful weight loss is striving for a healthy lifestyle and not following a quick weight loss/fad diet. If you change unhealthy habits for the sake of your health one step at a time, you will find yourself losing weight automatically. And you will actually keep the weight off.
Vegan Weight Loss Meal Prep
The most effective way to stick to a weight loss plan is to have a meal plan with even better meals that are already prepared and waiting in the fridge for you. Today, I would like to share a vegan weight loss meal prep that is oil free, gluten free, and can be done within one hour. With this vegan meal prep you will have 12 meals and each serve about 3 cups of food. Use the meal planner template to stay organized and track your caloric intake!
I created the recipes according to the vegan weight loss pyramid and you can increase the serving sizes as you please.
Here is what you need for the vegan weight loss meal prep:
- 12 meal prep containers (3 cups each)
- cutting board and knife
- 2 large pots OR 1 pot and 1 instant pot (I use this one)
- 1 small pot (for quinoa) and a large pan (for fajitas)
- hand blender
- The 3 recipes printed (see below) and all ingredients
Tip: Check the video at the end of this post to see how I cooked all three meals

How to Meal Prep
First, gather all your tools and ingredients. In the video below I started to prepare the ingredients for the stew. You can simply add all ingredients in one pot and cook for 20 minutes or use your instant pot and set on “stew – high – 5 minutes.”
Then prepare everything for the broccoli recipe. Add this into a large pot and set on the stove to cook for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, cook the rice or quinoa in a small pot and then add all ingredients plus some water to steam the fajita veggies in a large pan. Once they are steamed, drain the water and add the seasoning.
When your stew is cooked you can stir and fill it into 4 containers. Once the broccoli soup is done simply puree everything with a hand blender (add more water if desired) and divide it into 4 servings (4 containers).
