Developing healthy eating habits for the whole family shouldn’t be difficult to accomplish. I know that as a busy mom you can’t afford to spend countless hours cooking in the kitchen. This is why you need healthy meal prep ideas and recipes that you can prepare in a couple of hours. The best strategy to stick to your healthy eating goals and save time in the kitchen is planning ahead of the meals of the family for the whole week.
There are plenty of healthy meal prep ideas for every meal, i.e. breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, that you can easily prepare on a Sunday afternoon and be good to go for the week to come. However, many meal prepping recipes require that you make a batch of the same food for the whole week. This can become a bit boring, in my opinion. Personally, I would not favor eating the exact same dinner 5 days in a row. If this is your case, then I think you will like the following meal prep plan from Lisa from Downshiftology that is quite different from most meal prep ideas you will find.
