I want to do a post about what a typical week of meal prepping looks like for me. Even though I blog about recipes, I don't come up with or make new ones each week. Sometimes the creative juices aren't flowing, or I don't have time.
So, I keep it simple and healthy and it is all done within an hour (...90 mins at most!). Just stick to these categories of foods and you will have a great 4-5 days of meals ahead of you.
Protein + Veggies
My staples are: chicken breast, steamed broccoli, raw spinach, and roasted sweet potatoes. Other great options are: ground turkey, pork tenderloin, roasted asparagus, steamed brussel sprouts, and roasted carrots.
Hard boil and PEEL the eggs while you're meal prepping and you will love yourself for it later.

Grains (+more veggies!)
This is mexican inspired quinoa with corn, spinach, tomatoes and cilantro. Some other good options are: brown rice with mushrooms and spinach, or farro with roasted veggies.
+ you can't forget SNACKS!
Beef jerky, Rx bars, apples, and obviously dark chocolate are my go-tos.
Hope this simplified the intimidating process of meal prepping. I promise it's not that hard and it makes your life so much easier throughout the week.
And yes, sometimes I get bored of my chicken and veggies, buuuut (1) it pays off (2) it makes my body feel better (3) add condiments or sauces or spices to change it up each day AND (4) weekends are for rewarding yourself.
Let me know if you have questions!!
