Clean Eating Meal Prep Guide (Week 3) – Weekly Meal Prep tips featuring clean, whole food recipes. Always simple and always family friendly!
It’s my mission to provide homemade, clean meals and avoid processed ingredients as much as possible for my family. In this weekly series, I will be sharing what I’m prepping for the week ahead and hopefully inspiring you to jump on the meal prep bandwagon as well. 🙂 Pre-prepping is perfect for grabbing breakfast on the way out the door and makes packing lunches a breeze. Not to mention it cuts the food budget and reduces the urge to cheat!
For my Top 10 Clean Eating Meal Prep tips, check out this post!
For me, meal prep involves making one or two breakfast and lunch choices for the week ahead, some healthy snacks, and a few ingredients for dinner. If I have extra in-season produce, I will also prep and freeze it. My meal prep sessions usually take an hour or two at the most and always include my favorite tunes cranked up in the background!
Here’s what I’m making this week…
