Meal Prep: Salads

I can not tell you the amount of times where I come home from work and am starving / don’t want to cook an elaborate dinner- so I buy sushi, or a 15$ salad etc.  Cooking every meal is exhausting, i’m with you.  But I knew to be healthy, I can’t eat a microwavable meal every night and I certainly can’t spend 30+ dollars a day on food (Yes, this was happening-don’t judge, I live in an expensive city).  So I finally started prepping my meals.  That way when I got home from work, it took 5-10 minutes to heat up food and put together meals.  

What to do for meal prep:

  • Chop & cook a butt-load of veggies: like picture below
  • Hard boil some eggs for an easy breakfast!
  • Prepackage salads
  • Cook your grains ahead of time (pasta, quinoa, rice etc.)
  • Pre-make smoothie packs (in a plastic bag throw in a 1/2 banana, fruits and kale – freeze).
  • Make your own dressings and sauces and store in a container!
  • Cut up some fresh fruit and keep it handy to pick at when you need a snack
  • Precook (some) proteins: If you know you will be eating them in the next day or two- cook up chicken, fish tofu etc
