To be totally honest, sometimes meal preps are a bit challenging to create. Not only that, but they can be the last thing you want to do on your weekend. The secret? You don’t have to make everything from scratch.
The idea is to find as many things that you can to supplement on those weeks where you are busy or just don’t feel like hustling in the kitchen. It’s important to be mindful about this, as it’s easy to get caught up and spend tons of money in the pre-made food section at Whole Foods. Pro tip: Trader Joe’s is a great resource for little short cuts in your recipes.
I’m talking about buying a pesto to coat pre made zoodles to make an amazing lunch. Or buying granola that’ll make some super easy and ridiculously delicious yogurt parfaits.
This is also about recognizing how to easily pair things together to make amazing flavor in your meal prep. In this weeks poke recipe, we use coconut aminos and a pre-made chili garlic sauce to marinate the beets. Thats it! Those two ingredients are already so flavorful that it does all of the work for you.
Remember, it’s not always about reinventing the wheel, it’s about learning how to use what’s already right infront of you.
This meal prep is super easy, packed with nutrients and can be done half-homemade!
This recipe is so simple it should almost be illegal to call it a recipe. This is such a game changer when trying to impress for brunch or meal prepping for the week . You can honestly switch it up to whatever fruit you want, and buy granola from the store. It’s about making life easy and reminding you that yogurt parfaits are still a thing and a LIFESAVER.
