I love meal prepping!!!! *Pumps fists in air*  I like that feeling of accomplishment, however small it may seem. And it makes it extremely easy to just grab food and go during the hectic work week. I don't place whole meals in containers and instead prefer to make several different things so I can mix and match my meals. I do this because I get tired of the same meal every day for lunch or breakfast. If I can have veggie curry and rice, rice and and steamed veggies,  or salad on different days I can get through food faster without getting tired of it!

This week I made veggies mostly because they are just so fresh and available in California. Also. I LOVE MY VEGGIES!!! For the week, I made overnight oats, veggie curry, kale salad, FRIES, and rice. I only really measure when I am baking so add amounts based your taste preference. I was able to easily mix and match these and make different food combos. The best thing – no food waste and lots of healthy goodness!
