Meal Prep Like a Pro in 2019

We get it; takeout and processed foods are just so much easier. Cooking a wholesome meal is sometimes the last thing we have time for. You’ve probably heard of meal prepping - it’s a health trend that got popular a few years ago and has stuck around - for good reason. Meal prepping makes eating healthy easy and quick, week after week. But there’s a misconception about the trend - you don’t have to eat the same thing everyday. You can absolutely mix-and-match your meals with just a few variations in sauces, toppings, and sides. That way it never gets boring and it's easier to stay on track. All is takes is some patience in the kitchen and just a couple of hours (3 hours, max if you're not much of a cook) and you've got a week's worth of healthy lunch and dinners that won't break the bank or upset your taste buds either. We suggest going through the meal prep on Sundays, when you're least likely to have work or social obligations. So go grab your favorite glass… Read More
