Any of these sound familiar??
"I don't have time to meal prep"
"I need quick and easy lunch options"
"I don't really like cooking"
I hear these kind of challenges a lot from busy women (self included)!
The good news is there are actually a HEAP of nutritious convenient food options available these days:
- Breads and Wraps
- Pre made salad bags
- Pre marinated meats
- Frozen veggies
- Canned veggies
- Frozen bags of carb and veggie mix
The truth is you really don’t need to be making everything from scratch if you don’t have the time, energy or headspace to do so.
In the long term, meal prep can save you money and help you get more VARIETY into your diet…. in the short term (or during your busier weeks) these kinds of convenient options are the bomdiggity!
Unfortunately, many convenient foods get a bad wrap in the health and wellness world. I think we have the “whole food” and “real food” movements to thank for that. Personally speaking I find meals like this seriously handy for the super busy weeks and the ‘end-of-week-can’t-be ‘bothered-energy-lull’.
