Meal Prep Sample Menu + Grocery List

In my last post How to Meal Prep, I mentioned that I would make a post featuring an easy meal prep menu and grocery list. This isn’t the menu that I personally used this week, as ours was a bit more complicated and tailored to what we like to eat, but I wanted to make a menu with simple and easy meals that everyone can make at home. I just want to note that with meal prepping, although it may seem “boring”, a main part of it is eating the same meal a couple times a week so that you can make a large batch of it on your meal prepping day.

    • Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
    • Snack: 2 hardboiled eggs + blueberries
