To me, meal prepping is about making my week easier and saving time. It’s not about controlling how much I eat in a week or restricting myself to eating the exact same meals every day. I love prepping the basics, so I can have fun with the rest! It definitely helps to have your produce washed and cut, and your grains cooked.
1: Greens & Veggies
I start by filling my mason jars with lots of mixed greens. Then I add in my favourite veggies (here I have purple cabbage, watermelon radishes, baked sweet potatoes, cherry tomatoes, avocados, and micro greens).
2: Grains & Protein
Then I add in grains and/or protein. Here I made quinoa which I cooked with Organika Bone Broth powder for extra protein and collagen.
You can also prep salad dressing ahead of time, or use Little Creek or Primal Kitchen salad dressings.
4: Mason Jar
By packing your salad in mason jars, you are eliminating plastic waste and creating a much more sustainable life. At lunch time just toss your dressing in, screw on the lid, and give it a shake. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy!
