Food Prep

As a Registered Dietitian, I’m constantly asked what changes people can make for a healthier lifestyle. I’m a huge advocate of food prep. I firmly believe that weekend food prep plays a major part of my ability to eat healthy during the week. I’ve written several posts to share my tips and strategies for food prep and healthy weekday eating:

Food prep is one of the easiest things you can to do ensure you stay on track and eat healthy during the week. Click for some inspiration and posts to help you get started!

Each weekend, I make it a goal to head to the kitchen and do some Sunday Food Prep.  Every Sunday, I showcase my food prep from the previous weekend, plus several reader submissions in my Sunday Food Prep Inspiration series!

If you’re not sure where to start with your food prep, check out the link below to search through over 100 weekly posts where I share the food I prepped.
