Be a meal prep master
If you’re as into food as we are, you’ve probably seen or tried a meal prepping system before.
Meal prep can be incredibly useful. It’s cost-effective, eco-friendly, and usually the healthier option. The only problem is the repetition. You end up eating the same meals for seven days straight and then become bored. The whole system goes down the drain and it’s back to grabbing an unsatisfying lunch on the go.
Understanding this issue all too well, we’ve designed a meal prep guide with a little more flavor and we’ve teamed up with Slim Geransar of Video Meals to bring you some fast and easy options for the novice meal prepper.
