Recipe - Meal Prep and Your Perfect Salad Assembly 101

"Meal prep" is a huge term (and beneficial one) in the health and weight loss world. We all

know that if you're trying to get on top of your health and weight loss game, being prepared and having a plan is key. From writing out weekly workouts, to cooking in bulk and pre-portioning your meals, there are many things you can do to have a game plan for the days ahead. And since yesterday was Sunday...did you get all your planning done...or just decided to 'wing it'??


Some might argue they still don't have enough time, or know how, to make a full week's full of meals. Rest easy...I have you covered. Sometimes I get stuck in a 'hybrid' between meal prep, and assemble in the moment. During those times, I need something quick, easy, but still nutritious. That's why I've compiled a few of my favorite tips on how to do so, plus some sample recipes of my most preferred 'in a pinch' meals...salads.


Tip 1: If you prep anything...have your protein prepared. Cooking in bulk can mean just grilling up a few extra chicken breasts, or sautéing up the full package of ground beef.


Tip 2: Pre-cut and store separately, your different vegetables. Having vegetable precut and already stored separately makes it 100% easier to grab, add, and go, to your salad.


Tip 3: Don't get caught up in aesthetics, simple is key. When you're pressed for time but still adamant about losing weight, ease is where you'll want to focus. That's why I love salads. Most ingredients don't need to be cooked (or already are...see tip 1) and can be thrown together in a minute or two.
