Bountiful Basket | Meal Prep

Well, I missed posting about my Meal Prep post for last week..because I didn’t meal prep! Being out of town all weekend doesn’t help or encourage meal prepping… I mostly flew by the seat of my pants last week. This week will be a little different and back to the norm of prepping for the week!

  1. Great Post! Everyone is genetically built a little different. I have found eating for my body type has really improved my macronutrient caloric intake. Also, I have found by using the handful method and by using pre-measured meal prep container like http://macrostacks.com versus measuring spoons and cups I am more consistent with proper nutrition for my body type.

    Thanks for the post!!
