Have you ever done a salad jar meal prep? This is my first time getting into this meal prepping adventure. Let me tell you why I started this adventure!
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:
My goal is to create new recipes each week for you. However, sometimes I do fall into a writers block/ creative block! This is when I turn to takeout meals for inspiration.
One of the most frequently asked questions in my practice is about protein powders. Do I need one? Which one? etc.
In Canada, we’re now entering the coldest and most dreary time of the year. The holidays are now behind us. Personally, I would love to fast-forward to spring, as I’m not the most cold-adapted person!
This weekend, I was craving comfort foods. Comfort foods to me are warm foods but also foods that have some nostalgia to them. What do comfort foods mean to you?
The meal prep “theme” was inspired by the fact…that I couldn’t use my stove this weekend!
We couldn’t use our stove because it had to be moved for backsplash tiling to be done (which I had the hardest time picking out – anyone else?) We couldn’t move it back yet, as the tiles were just grouted…but here we are with the perfect oppotunity for a “No Cook Meal Prep Sunday”!
