Want to get into meal prepping, but overwhelmed by how to make your meals? Here’s a formula for the easiest, tastiest vegetarian meal prep recipe…Mix & Match Vegetarian Meal Prep!
I’ve always liked the idea of vegetarian meal prep but always had a hard time jumping into it. For some reason, I thought it would be confusing or hard or time-consuming.
Boy, was I wrong! As it turns out, making healthy lunches for the week is actually easier when you do it in big batches. And the reward? Healthy, flavorful lunches all week that aren’t hastily thrown together sandwiches.
How do you vegetarian meal prep for the week?
Pick one or two items from each food group to put in your meal prep boxes. Maybe on Monday, you want your protein to be egg and your veggie to be peppers…great! The next day you can have chickpeas with broccoli…also great! Mix and match without fear, everything goes well together (and you may even find a new favorite combination!)
