If you haven't tried meal prepping, I can't recommend it enough. I take a couple of hours every weekend to prepare some meals and snacks for the busy week ahead, and it makes those crazy weekday mornings so much easier. I supplement these meals and snacks with lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and it ensures that I always have healthy, dairy free options ready to go.
I love this recipe because you get a serving of veggies in first thing in the morning, and it's really delicious. Leftovers can be reheated right in the microwave in about 30-60 seconds. I serve it with a slice of toast or a homemade muffin, and some fresh fruit. My son likes this before school on a whole wheat bagel for an easy breakfast sandwich.
These muffins are a tasty option to serve alongside the above mentioned egg bake, or to pack for school snacks. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A and antioxidants, so we eat these muffins all winter long.
My tween is loving salads lately, and this is one of his favorites. I make the chicken and the salad ahead of time and store them separately in the refrigerator so the vegetables don't get wet and soggy.
Chili is a great meal to make ahead because it just gets better the longer it sits. This turkey chili recipe is great because it's mild on spice, making it a kid-friendly option. It's also great for making chili dogs, which is always a big hit in our house.
I love these energy balls. They're naturally sweetened, and help satisfy those chocolate cravings. This is a great option for an on-the-go snack, school snacks, an addition to lunchboxes, or for a healthier dessert option.
