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!

- 2 cucumbers
- 1 fennel – not sure what to do with this…Pinterest will tell me!
- 2 summer squash

I also contributed to 8lbs of mangos and a bag of Tropical Granola! The granola is SO good and the mangoes were too great to pass up!

Meal Preps make your week so much easier! It’s so nice to be able to have a healthy snack or meal right when you need it! Pinning!
Yes! I am a mess in the morning, especially if I get in a morning workout. The prep helps A LOT!
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!!
I have looked (briefly) into getting similar containers for meal prepping! Thank you for the link!
