One of my main goals with meal prep is to provide options for healthy meals and snacks. While setting aside 2-3 hours for preparing meals is possible at times, I know there are weeks that it just does not fit in the schedule. Meal prep does not always have to include hours of cooking, but can be about keeping the refrigerator and freezer filled with healthy choices. Having a stocked refrigerator and freezer eliminates a barrier to choosing healthy foods despite hectic schedules and minimal cook time during the week.
