Letz talk meal prep. It got real LIT🔥
Meal prepping is a great way to save time throughout the week.
Most people have the notion that meal prepping is putting the same exact food 'portioned' correctly into the correct containers. I don't and have never done that. I don't believe in that regime, but hey, if that works for you then that's great.

What I like to do is get all my ingredients cooked/washed/prepped so I am able to throw bowls/salads/etc together much quicker than if I didn't prep. I still need to cook some ingredients the day of, like salmon/🍳, but that's pretty much it. I like to roast certain vegetables to make them nice and crispy (430 degree oven for about 36 minutes~ ovens vary.) and this way that whole step is done.
Each week I'll mix up the food to what I'm crAving or what's in season. When I mix and match these ingredients to create my dinners, I don't measure them out - I don't measure anything out when I'm cooking, just throw it in the 🍲 🤘🏻. Most containers are glass. The few that are plastic are either being recycled from the greens bought from the store or are food/heat safe & BPA free.
