Meal planning that is healthy, light and schedule adaptive. I’m trying to look at increasing the green veggies this school year. Smart Water is great as well. I am trying to work to encourage my students as well to making good choices.

I meal prep over the weekend. I like to dump something in the crock pot and throw something else in the oven. While those two things are cooking, I’ll make something on the stove top. I like doing this because it maximizes my time and gives me a variety of options when packing my lunch. I’ll usually put 2 of the 3 items in my lunch box and add some quinoa or half a baked/steamed sweet potato in for healthy carbs that make me feel full and satisfied. I rotate through all 3 items during the week so there’s less of a chance that I’ll get tired of eating the exact same thing every day. I usually make dishes that are a combination of veggies and protein so I’m getting the nutrition I need. Good luck!

I have never even considered meal prepping but I will now. I will to discipline myself to do it. We don’t really eat leftovers around these here parts(don’t judge), but I can even prep 5 new meals for the week.
