Meal prepping can be so daunting, but it's kind of like going to the gym...you feel so much better after you do it and it's 100% worth it.
I dreeaadd cooking when i'm hangry, and usually opt for take-out when I get to that point, but then I have little control of what I'm putting into my body so it's best to KNOW and make food at home. Save eating out for special occasions, not convenience.
This meal and dish prep took about 2.5 hours but you could definitely get it down to 2.
These are the typical dishes I like to meal prep each week minus a few. Most of these dishes can be used in multiple ways for different meals. My go to is typically nourish bowls because they are super healthy, filling, and delicious!
