This post contains affiliate links.  My meal prep is usually just snacks, but I think I’m going to start actually prepping meals.  It’s getting hot already here in Arizona (many days have been in the mid-80s), and my perimenopausal self finds it very uncomfortable to be in a hot kitchen in the afternoon.  Plus, the heat seems to make my heart skipping worse (still getting tests and seeing doctors to figure that out), so I think I’ll do myself a favor and get the cooking done all in one day.  On the other days, I’ll use the slow cooker or serve cold foods.
