This week in particular has felt quite heavy. In Ontario, we were faced with more lockdowns restrictions as Covid cases increase. I have been wondering if we will ever get out of this thing.
It’s no secret that meal prepping is something that I promote and is a routine that I follow a meal prep routine each week. There are so many advantages to meal prepping – the time saved, the ease of meal choices throughout the week, the increased healthfulness of the meals. etc.
There is one downside to meal prep that I do hear fairly often – “don’t you get sick of the same meal over and over again?”
The answer is yes, I would – if I was eating the same starch, protein and veggies each day. However, this doesn’t have to be the case with each meal prep routine!
It is possible to enjoy satisfying, flavourful, and filling dishes every day of the week. And thanks to meal prep, you can do this without sacrificing time, money, and energy.
Here are my tips for adding variety while meal prepping:
I have been experimenting and discussing the “Buffet-Style Meal Prep” a lot more lately. It’s a great option because it gives you more flexibility to chose your meals throughout the week but also allows you to save time!
Do you have a favourite meal? For me, hands-down, it’s breakfast.
Today I’m highlighting National Osteoporosis Month, as it is quite common – Osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men in their lifetime!
