my current weekly meal prep.

my current weekly meal prep. My week goes so much smoother if I take time on the weekend (or sometimes Monday morning) and prep for meals. I also do MUCH better sticking to my weight watchers points throughout the week if I've got meals ready to go.

Meal prep usually takes about a total of 3 hours: 1 hour at the grocery store, and 2 hours in the kitchen + clean up.

Here's what my current weekly meal prep looks like:

brown rice.

I also make sure there are veggies cut up for snacking (and lately I've been buying hummus), and fruit to grab when I need a sweet treat (and I'm out of girl scout cookies).

Spending a little extra time in the kitchen makes our weeknights a little less crazy, and a little more tasty.
