Meal Prepping doesn’t need to be boring - it can be colorful, healthy and full of different flavors!
Sometimes the most challenging part of meal prepping is deciding what to make. That’s why I have included recipes throughout The Plan to provide you with a starting point when meal prepping and inspire you to search for new recipes.
Lately, I have tried to branch out and try some new recipes. This is a recipe that is super easy to make and totally different from my usual meal prep routine.
