Setting aside some time on the weekend to meal prep for the week has made an incredible difference in my life. When I recommitted to healthy eating this year, my husband and I decided to pursue a plant based diet to improve our general health and well being.
I dusted off the meal prep skills I had been so good at, broke out my trusty glass containers and got down to researching and discovering delicious plant based recipes to incorporate into my new diet.
Some of these you’ll find in my post on how to transition to a plant-based diet.
Over the last few months, it’s been a real awakening to experience the benefits of healthy eating, not to mention the time-saving (and budget-friendly) benefits of meal prepping.
