Meal Prepping Tips For Beginners

Planning ahead for easy and healthy lunches

As we all know, lunch is the most important meal of the day. It's the time when we refuel and recharge for the rest of the day. But sometimes it's hard to find the time to cook something healthy and delicious. That's why meal prepping is the perfect solution! Here's how to meal prep for a week's worth of lunches:

1. Choose 7-10 healthy recipes.

2. Cook or prep all of the ingredients for those recipes.

3. Divide the ingredients into individual portions.

4. Store the ingredients in airtight containers in the fridge.

5. When you're ready to eat, just heat up the ingredients and assemble your lunch. Some of my favorite healthy lunch recipes include roasted portobello caps with roasted kale and roasted sweet potatoes, quinoa and black bean salad, and falafel wraps.

By meal prepping, you'll have no trouble finding healthy and delicious lunches to eat during the week. And you'll save time and money in the process!
