    I'm big on making at least one soup, stew, or casserole on the weekend then portioning and freezing them in silicon muffin pans, then pop out the little hockey puck portions and toss in a freezer bag. I typically have 3 to 5 different puck flavors in the freezer at any time. I even sometimes mix and match them! (Had a tofu, zucchini and kale enchilada puck + one lentil, carrot chili puck for dinner tonight-- 4 minutes in the microwave and topped with Cholula and nutritional yeast!)

    Just a piece of advice sir/ma'am - Don't try to be "lazy" with your food choices. be more proactive by cooking as much as you can. It will give you more control over your nutrition and flavors. Preprocessed foods for regular consumption have always been bad idea - living in America has just made these processed foods too widely available to get away from them.

    Edamame fettuccine or black bean spaghetti with peanut (or almond) sauce made from defatted nut powder (like PB2) + hot chile sauce + rice vinegar, with veg. On the easiest end, I like frozen peas (cook the pasta, fish it out with a spaghetti fishing tool, put the frozen peas in the hot water until it comes back to simmer) + fine-chopped raw sweet onions or green onions. Can add other seasonings to the sauce if you like (minced garlic, minced fresh ginger, a bit of toasted sesame oil if you have the calories, etc.)

    Ezekial tortilla fold-over with mustard, smoked tofu, thin slices of onion, cheese or vegan cheese (I like mozzarella, personally). Microwave those things to melt the cheese/heat the tofu, then add raw sauerkraut.

    Refried beans mixed with chopped peppers/onions, cheese if you eat it, enough salsa to get dip consistency, microwave to heat. Add avocado or guacamole if you have the calories, a blop of plain Greek yogurt if you eat dairy. Eat with reasonable portion of bean tortilla chips (like Beanitos). If you run out of chips before running out of beans, it tastes fine eaten with spoon, too.

    Cooked chickpea pasta mixed with smashed winter squash (can use frozen, after thawing), add vegan or regular cheese, Greek yogurt if you eat dairy, microwave to heat. Some pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top are nice if you have the calories, and it tastes good if you season the mixture with sage before heating.

    Flavor tip: Put dark miso or a good-sized spoon of unsweetened cocoa/cacao powder (really!) to chili or hearty soups, for extra flavor depth. Be aware that the cocoa/cacao powder needs to be heated to (near) simmer in the soup, or it will taste raw.

    For quick meals, as one component, a product I'm liking lately is Right Rice brand chickpea "rice" (really chickpea orzo pasta). You boil water, put in the dry product, bring back to simmer, then let it sit off heat for 10 minutes. I usually do this by boiling water in teakettle or in microwave in a pyrex measuring cup, then adding the product, microwaving (watching!) to bring back to boil. Do that at the start of meal prep, let it sit while stir-frying some veg, or microwave some veg while the "rice" is sitting. (Banza brand chickpea rice is nicer to eat, IMO, but has to be boiled and rinsed. The Right Rice is simpler prep, very lazy.) The chickpea pastas tend to have around 14-15g protein per serving, so usefully more than plain wheat pasta, and they taste similar.

    On the weekend, roast up a big batch of assorted veggies and refrigerate. During the week, use cold in salads, or heat briefly for use in other dishes.

    There are a bunch of good vegetarian or vegan sauces/condiments that are great for flavoring-up quick meals, too. Some I like are harissa, the Yellow Bird brand fruit-sweetened vegan sriracha, Pickapeppa sauce (sort of Carribean flavor profile hot sauce - but it has sugar that may not be vegan), vegan Gochujang chile sauce, vegan forms of kim chi, herb mustards.

    Easy, just don't describe it as " LAZY", reasses and understand it can be convenient and easy. Im VLC whole food plant based vegan. I make everything simple.
    Staples for me are:
    Avocado, Tofu, tempeh, plant protein powders, hemp protein, higher fat nuts, dark leafy greens, steamed cruciferous vegetables, seeds, vegan cream Cheese and sour cream- Kite Hill

    "Just Egg" vegan eggs, Litelife meatless ground meat and Beyond Meat are best " plant meats".

    I put Just Egg in bowl, microwave for minute, mix in chopped dark greens or spinach, add more Just Egg. Micro until egg is cooked. Top with seasonings. Kite Hill cream cheese, chive

    Make Beyond Meat crumbles, mix with spinach, shiritaki, vegan cheese shreds, optional pine nuts. Seaweed nori crumbles.

    Nori , collard leaf or coconut wrapped avocado, sprouts, cucumber, celery, shreds carrot.

    Get microwave bags of veggies. Put in microwave. Bake, microwave or pan cook high fat protein. Top with Braggs amonos, Kite Hill, sesamee, etc.

    Throw leafy greens in bowl with nuts, edamae, nut dressing or coconut shreds, Braggs, vegan dressings. Bam

    Make " cauliflower mashed potato" . Boil cauliflower, mash, mix coconut oil and serve with vegan butter. Tempeh in pan, cook in avocado oil. Top with Braggs, etc.

    These are easy quick ideas. Get frozen spinach, coconut cream, fried onion,pine nuts, chive, mix and bake in Pyrex with layer of avocado oil in polish, top with rincles vegan Paleo nut flower

    Put plant protein, leafy greens,nuts, chia, flax, avocadoalmonsmilk in blender, smoothie.

    Just some examples that you can learn or try from 😊

    I love the beyond meat brats with brussel sprouts I guess you could go raw on the sprouts but I cook in butter with garden fakin bacon. I also liked the Thai burger from aldi (veg) I made that put some garlic sauce on top had with riced cauliflower, I love my favorite thing is hemp nuggets with a mustard vinaigrette, spicy chicken patties (veg) with egg or egg substitute in a scramble, a mix of mushroom and a keto version of fathead pizza dough with the daiya mozzarella

    I’d also say do not underestimate olives such a good healthy fat help carry a meal that might make you hungry later!

    It tastes a lot like I remember egg tasting. There are two products -- the liquid egg that you can cook yourself and the "flat egg" which is pre-cooked so you can put it in a sandwich or something similar.

    Yes it is just like real eggs without the icky smell and slightly buttery taste. Love it!
