Setting yourself up for the week is key to hitting your goals! I make time every Sunday to prep my food in advance for the work week. This meal prep is all food from Trader Joe’s, Melissa’s Produce, and 5280 Meats. I also used some seasonings from The Spice Cave.

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.
