I have been a fan of meal prepping for quite some time now. Having all the ingredients on hand for a quick breakfast on-the-go, carrying a lunch and snacks with me when I’m away from home and always having something in the fridge to eat in a flash for dinner have become a way of life for me.
But I wasn’t always that way. Through high school, when tasked with making my own lunches, my go-tos were pizza pockets, a plain bagel or a bag of sugar cookies. Even through most of university I would rely on microwave mac and cheese or a Tim Hortons muffin to get me through the day.
However, slowly, I learned more recipes, got comfortable packing meals in a way that they wouldn’t leak and ruin my day and overall started incorporating more whole, homemade foods into my life. My energy soared, my digestion improved… not to mention, my bank account loved it!
