Meal prep is key to setting yourself up for eating success. Spend a few hours prepping on a Sunday, and reap the benefits all week long. Your wallet and your waistline will be grateful.
Sure, it’s easy to pick up Pad Thai or call for some sushi, but restaurants are notorious for adding on the salt, oil, and butter in favor of flavor and not necessarily your health. Start a routine of meal prepping on your day off, and enjoy simple and accessible meals all week long.
Batch cook some veggies, grains, and plant-based protein, and you have the ideal foundation for simple, streamlined meals throughout the week.
Make a few different sauces, dips, or dressings; lean heavily on spices; sprinkle on some toasted nuts and seeds; and throw in some fermented friends like kimchi and sauerkraut, and you have the makings of some nutritious, easy, and delicious weeknight meals.
