First things first, we need to talk about what meal prepping is.





A little throwback from my meat eating days Lineup: 1. Egg and egg white muffins with tomatoes and green onions 2. Lean ground turkey couscous-otto with fresh tomatoes 3. Sriracha baked tilapia fillets with broiled asparagus 4. Baked chicken breasts with sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli 5. Baked chicken breasts with baked carrots and asparagus 6. Rotisserie chicken for my son 7. Plain Greek yogurt with blackberries and strawberries 8. Fresh peppers, baby carrots and cucumbers with hummus 9. Almonds, bananas and oranges . .#mealprepsunday #foodporn #mealplan #mealprep #macros #fitspo #nutrition #diet #mealprepideas #whole30 #fitspiration #eatright #wholefoods #healthy #iifym #fitnessmeals #dieta #fitfood #cleaneating #cleaneats #mealprepmonday #mealprepping #mealplanning #foodprep #weightloss #healthyfood #mealprepdaily #mealprepmondays

We all love our kids, but we also know how much time and energy it takes to keep up with them. Mornings are busy and hectic and dinner plans are the last things on our mind. The answer is actually pretty simple-- MEAL PREPPING! 

Now that we covered that, here are some ideas for you and your kids to get your whole family meal prepping for the week!

We like to keep breakfast nice and simple so getting kids on the bus in the mornings can stay hassle free. There are so many easy grab & go breakfast foods, only some of which include egg bites, powerbites, and overnight oats!

New breakfast/brunch idea? You betcha! #eggcups #healthy #simple #dietcup #yumyum

Enjoy the next morning! This is seriously delicious. Perfect for those who don't have time to make a healthy breakfast. . . #vegan #veganfood #veganfoodporn #veganism #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #healthy #healthyfood #food #foodporn #overnightoats #blueberry #fruit #breakfast #healthybreakfast #foodie #foodphotography #yummy #bekind #govegan

As kids get older, they try to be more and more independent. Keeping that in mind, this lunch is a super simple kid-friendly introduction to meal prepping they can pretty much do on their own!



Isn't it the best when you have something so good you forget it's also healthy? Wait, you've never had something that tastes that good but is also good for you??

Then you've never had this Chicken Quinoa Salad, the perfect easy and light meal for lunch everyday!



Adults and kids alike - who doesn't love chicken nuggets?? We LOVE this healthy twist on a chicken nugget meal for dinner!


You've worked so hard all day and ate so well, we think you've earned one of the yummiest meals in existence... Pasta!
