    Meal Prep Sunday Tips and Recipes

    Taking time out of your Sunday (or whatever day is your free day during the week) to prep your meals for the week is going to be the best way to keep you on track to hit your goals. I’ve been doing meal prep Sunday consistently for the past three years and I get better at it every week. Prepping meals is also a great way to save money – if you already have meals at home or ready to take with you to work, you’re going to less likely to sway away from those meals and go out for lunch. Also, having a prepared lunch with you at work…

    Tuna and White Bean Salad | Recipe of the Week

    Shrimp & Veggie Cauliflower Bowl | Recipe of the Week

    I shared this recipe a few weeks ago when I meal prepped it for one of my meals for the week, but I want to share it again because it’s that’s good!

    Meal Prep Sunday | 7.17.16

    Last week I wanted to take the time prepping my lunches and some of my dinners for the week. The weather was going to be the hottest we’ve had yet, so I planned for mostly cold meals for most of the week so we didn’t have to even turn on the oven. A lot of these were prepped with raw “clean” ingredients and were on the lower end of calories for my meals – I’m not mad. Quinoa Veggie Salad I threw this salad together with leftover quinoa and corn that we had in the fridge. Both were leftover ingredients were from a Quinoa Enchilada Casserole we had made last week, and I thought…
