Quinoa Salad: Make-Ahead & Eat for days!
How many times have you told yourself you'll start food prepping on Sunday so you'll follow up with your healthy habits during your super-busy week? Same here! The key to beginning your food prepping journey is to start small and keep it basic. If you decide to make a huge batch of lasagna and a huge batch of muffins, then you will probably feel overwhelmed.
Why not set yourself smaller goals then? Goals that feel attainable and don't involve spending a whole day in the kitchen. Ok, imagine telling yourself you'll cook up some quinoa, steam some broccoli and make a few overnight oats in a jar. Better right? Sometimes less is more. Stick to basics and have the foundations to improvise during the week without stress.
