Meal Prep - 5 Meals in 1 Hour

Screen Shot 2019-02-20 at 3.10.54 pm.png

Because I so frequently upload meal prep videos I thought it’d be easy if I place all the instructions / macros etc for this latest one in one place! Watch the video here.

It took me 1 hr and 15 mins to do this meal prep, and film it! So if you’re not filming your kitchen escapades it should be even quicker than that.

I don’t eat these meals in a specific order. I save the recipes in Lifesum so I can plan my day and select when I eat them. We picked out of these for 3 days (amongst cooking other things - we eat 5-6 x daily) before we ran out.

Note: Eat the salad the same or next day you make it.
