This week, we have a great guest post from Lily, a food blogger at www.thematbakh.com discussing some great ideas for easy and tasty meal prep recipes. Check out the post below for these delicious recipes.
Many of us don’t have much time to cook everyday breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And while eating out does provide convenience, sometimes it’s not the healthiest choice. One solution to this dilemma is to meal prep.
Meal prepping is batch cooking meals ahead of time, so they are easily consumed. Some recipes require reheating with the microwave, whereas others can be eaten cold (like salads).
