Tofu + Vegetable Stir Fry (Vegan + Gluten Free)

I've been making an effort to eat healthier and part of that meant starting to meal prep. Probably 95% of the time, I have leftovers from the night before for lunch the next day, but sometimes when we can't be bothered to cook a proper meal in the evening it leaves me without a lunch the next day. I decided that to avoid this, I would meal prep for the week on a Sunday, so that I had five lunches sat waiting for me in the fridge.

Tofu + Vegetable Stir Fry (Vegan + Gluten Free)

Stir fry is such an easy thing to put together, you can just use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge and mix them together with sauce (and tofu if you have it) and bam! You have a delicious, nutritious meal! having stir fry's for lunches has been a firm favourite of mine since back when I started uni, and I could eat the meal cold (weren't many microwaves on campus!) and not be bothered by it.

You might find eating the same meal five lunches in a row repetitive, but I personally found this super tasty and filling - no complaints here! I've even made it again for lunch a different week and swapped out the noodles for boiled rice, still just as good!

What sorts of meals do you meal prep? Leave any ideas you have down below in the comments!
