Top 10 Meal-Prep Tips For The Working Crowd

November 7, 2016

I really wanted to call this post my “Top 10 meal prep tips for anyone too hungover on Sundays or peeps who ain’t got time for that” but the formatting was all off, so, I went with “working crowd” assuming you know what I meant. But let’s get to the point shall we? Meal prep- everyone talks about it like it’s for people who have nothing else to do on a Sunday, but in actuality- it’s all about your mindset. If you “can’t even” when it comes slicing and dicing some fruit and veggies for the week, but you’re totally down to bake some pumpkin muffins or throw a chili together to smell all day while you watch football, you’re cheating yourself out of all the meal-prep possibilities I’m about to share with you.

That being said- these tips aren’t going to keep you chained to the cutting board for hours, or make you brave Costco on a weekend (unless you’re into that gauntlet atmosphere like me). We all know it’s much more fun to prep with a glass of wine on Sunday night than over a rushed cup of coffee Monday morning, so pause Netflix and try some of these- you’ll thank me around Wednesday.

This recipe is lite, citrus-y and packed with extra protein for a satisfying lunch; in a salad, on a sandwich, or however you please.  Continue Reading
