Meal prepping is an easy way to have healthy food already prepared and portioned for you to eat during the week. This way you avoid succumbing to food cravings, not knowing what to eat after a busy day, and most importantly you know the highest quality ingredients have gone into your meal.

We chose to cook wild salmon and pasture-raised chicken breast, but feel free to prepare whatever variety of protein you prefer. You can also cook another tray or two of veggies and protein to have more prepared meals on hand for the week ahead. This is also a great way to save money. You can take in these meals in to work for lunch, instead of spending money eating out.

If you usually eat out for lunch or dinner, many restaurants use poor quality oils and salts, and this can cause inflammation, water retention, and bloating. When you cook your own meals with high quality avocado oil, organic olive oil, and pink Himalayan sea salt, you’ll notice you feel very different after eating when compared to how you feel after eating a meal out.

We hope that this simple recipe becomes your weekly ritual. Please comment below to let us know your favorite vegetables and protein to meal prep!
