Weekly Meal Prep

Meal Prepping for the Week is great because it can help save time you during the week and can help insure you eat healthier meals. Doing a little prep work early in the week will pay off everyday at lunch and dinner. Let me show you how easy it can be to meal prep and eat healthier!

One of our favorite lunch time meals is grilled chicken salad.  On Sunday afternoon I season a few packages of thinly sliced chicken breast and grill them up for meals during the week.

Whether for lunch or dinner, a little meal prep early in the week can save time and money all week long!

A few containers of soup in the freezer can feed a hungry crowd today or next week.
