Food prep photos. Yeah, we’ve all seen those Pinterest photos that feature cute containers packed with a week’s worth of food in them. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can do it too! If you want to save time and have delicious meals you can pull out for lunch or dinner, start with these three easy steps:

Invest in Good Containers

The most important part of the process is finding quality storage containers that you can freeze and, when the time comes, pull out and transfer directly to the microwave to heat up.

Have a Plan

Stick with What You Know
