What's on your meal prep menu for this week?
The average American who orders in spends $1,175 a year on takeout. In case you don't want to do the math, that's roughly $70,000 over an average lifetime. Think of all the things you could buy, trips you could take, or how much earlier you could retire if you saved that $70,000!
Save your money, skip the door dash, and try these delicious meals (that don’t take forever, and will satisfy your cravings) instead.
Recipes to try:

Wednesday: Chicken Tortilla Soup
Thursday: Baked Salmon
Friday: Chicken Skewers + Salad + Rice
Saturday: Flatbread Pizza + Salad

Make time 1-2 days per week to plan and shop for your dinners in advanced. This will take the guesswork out of dinnertime. Instead of dreading the “whats for dinner?” question you will have a solid game plan. Meal prep is the best way to stay on track with your nutrition goals.
Meal planning tip—I have a whiteboard in my kitchen that I use to plan the menu for the week. I write out our dinners and then the grocery list I need to make each recipe. This takes the guesswork out of dinners as the week goes on. Picky kids? Prep for them too! Having a large batch of pasta, chicken, and items your kids will actually eat prepped ahead of time makes life so much easier.
