Food should be fun, and more often than not, with busy school and work schedules, long to-do lists and the hectic nature of everyday life, cooking dinner can end up feeling more like a chore. The question “What’s for dinner?” should make you feel excitement, not dread, which is why meal prepping is the perfect solution to make mealtime fun again.
Setting time aside on a Saturday or Sunday to cook meals for the rest of the week and pre-packaging them into individual portions takes the stress out of cooking. Plus, you’ll cut down your time in the kitchen and save money while doing so.
