Meal prepping is the best way to set yourself up for success! I usually prep everything but dinner ahead of time because I find it easy to cook dinner when I get home but I always have the ingredients ready to go. I have prepped dinner before in advance if I have a busier week. I included the 21 Day Fix container info below too.
Meal 1 – shakeolgoy with water, ice & 2tsp. peanut butter (1 red, 2 tsp.)
Meal 2 – 2 eggs & oatmeal (not shown) (1 red, 1 1/2 yellow)

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 (check out the 21 Day Fix & 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plans for seasoning recipes).
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.
