How To Master This Week's Meal Prep

Because the last thing you want to worry about in the middle of the work week is food.

1. Pack healthy snacks to bring on the go so you don't end up spending unnecessary cash on less-than-healthy snacks you don't even like that much.

2. Organize your fridge so that you can store more stuff, as efficiently and safely as possible.

3. Make a big batch of slaw; It won't wilt like a lettuce salad, which means it'll taste good for longer!

You can use cabbage as the base, but lots of other crunchy vegetables will work if you slice them thinly enough. Fennel, carrots, and bell peppers are all great choices. Add dried fruit for a little sweetness, too.

A slow-cooker pork shoulder proves to be the gift that keeps on giving in this easy, healthy-ish meal plan. Learn more here.

5. Season your chicken breast more than one way to keep yourself from getting bored, then cook everything on a single sheet tray.

Aluminum foil "dividers" keep all the flavors from mixing together! Learn more here.

6. Make a big batch of oatmeal in the slow cooker.

You can eat a serving straight out of the slow cooker as soon as it's done, then portion out the rest and keep it in the fridge. For the next couple of mornings, all you need to do is heat the already cooked oatmeal. Recipe here.

7. Instead of cooking a big batch of grains, roast a sheet tray (or two) of potatoes and sweet potatoes instead.

To keep yourself from getting bored, you can cook all different kinds!
