Meal Prep is BestWeekly (or rather, bi-weekly) Meal Prep is one of the rituals I have that makes my life better, easier and makes me a little more zen on the regular.
If I can't or don't start my week with some healthy meals ready to go, I literally feel off balance, stressed and slightly unnerved.
Why? Because Meal Prepping is so deeply aligned with some of my core values: to eat clean and healthy foods, to save time, to save money, to be organized, to prepare...
These are the items that make it on to my grocery list week by week, ensuring I get off to a great start. If you are hoping to get on the Meal Prep train in 2020 or just looking for some new ideas that might make meal planning a little easier, I hope you find some inspiration in my grocery/menu favourites below.
