Meal prepping food for the week can make your life so much easier and save you time in the long run! For this four day week, I prepped some of my favorites. Overnight oats make an easy grab & go breakfast especially if you have a busy schedule or are slammed between meetings & barely even have time to even go to the fridge. Salad jars help keep your ingredients crisper by using a special layering technique. Also new this week, I found purple yams from a market in Koreatown and I love that they have a slightly sweeter taste the regular sweet potatoes.

Q: Where do you get your mason jars from?

A: Any Michaels or crafts store.

Q: How big are your salad jars?

A: About 16 oz.

Q: Where do you get the black containers?

A: Click here to buy the same containers from amazon.

Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?

A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting.

Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?

A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.

Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?

A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.

Q: So lost…use the colored containers and dump into the larger ones?

A: The colored containers are from 21 Day Fix/21 Day Fix EXTREME. I use it to help me measure out the proportions of all my food then put it into my black chefland containers for organization and mobility reasons.
