This post contains affiliate links.  I have discovered that I’m busiest early in the week–Monday through Wednesday.  To compensate for that, I’ve started having larger meal prep sessions on the weekend.  Then, I don’t do any cooking Monday through Wednesday.  Instead, I pull from leftovers I or my husband have made on the weekends.  So far, as long as I’m disciplined to go in the kitchen on Sunday for a few hours to cook, this plan has worked wonderfully.

Meal Prep

Meal prep includes photo of stuffed peppers, banana muffins, chicken, and rice
