Clean Eating Meal Prep Guide (Week 1) – Weekly Meal Prep tips featuring clean, whole food recipes. Always simple and always family friendly!
With the arrival of fall and back to school, I am in serious meal planning mode. Life and busy schedules just seem to flow better when I have a weekly menu in mind and food prepped ahead of time. Pre-prepping is perfect for grabbing breakfast on the way out the door, makes packing lunches a breeze, and dinner comes together so much faster. Not to mention it cuts the food budget and reduces the urge to cheat!
Beginning today (October 1), I am kicking off this Meal Prep Guide Series! It’s my mission to provide homemade, clean meals and avoid processed ingredients as much as possible for my family. Here 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. 🙂 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. My meal prep sessions usually take an hour or two at the most and always include my favorite tunes cranked up in the background!
I’m making some of my favorites this week. I hope you’ll join me!!
