Meal Prep {the How-To and the Why}

So, I have decided to start doing that magical thing called meal prep. I’m not planning on having these meals every single day, but I have decided that it is a step in the right direction. If you do it right, you can save money and eat healthier.

My main ingredients will consist of

  1. Brown Rice
  2. Chicken
  3. Tomatoes
  4. Broccoli
  5. Asparagus/Green Beans (whatever is on sale)
  6. Spinach

Of course, I will use other ingredients but these will be the main focus.

Im planning on roasting a a bunch of veggies for two nights with chicken and brown rice. This can be easily reheated and good to eat the first night of making.

Then using the chicken, tomatoes, spinach and layering with black beans, corn and my avocado cilantro dressing in a mason jar for another two days

For snacks, I can eat the broccoli and tomatoes with ranch dressing.

Lunch some days I can use the spinach and tomatoes with chicken and dressing for a salad or even eat the roasted veggies and brown rice with fresh spinach.

The goal of this is to save me money and to make sure I don’t go all day without eating or eating a sandwich for lunch when I know I should be eating vegetables.

I hope this has helped you and I will be sure to keep you updated as I start this yummy food journey.
