Meal prepping can seem daunting. It can be overwhelming to think about preparing enough food for several days in advance…but it actually can be quite simple.

As a busy mom with limited time I like to choose simple recipes that I can make ahead that don’t require a big mess, lots of time, or a never ending list of ingredients. The key is to keep it simple and clean. And the end result is a healthy meal you don’t have to think about or prepare on the fly during a busy day.

Salads are always an easy option that require little to no cooking at all. Being able to incorporate colorful, fresh ingredients and various textures and flavors makes it meal that never gets old! One of my favorites is this Tempeh Taco Bowl. It’s a meal made in only 10 minutes that packs in lots of plant-based protein, vitamin filled veggies, and healthy fats. This low carb option is perfect for lunch at home, at your desk, in your car- or anywhere!

Don’t forget to invest in some reusable, sealable containers! It’s a great way to produce less waste and makes packing it in a bag or backpack so easy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Tempeh is a nutrient-dense soy product with a high amount of protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. It may decrease cholesterol levels, oxidative stress and appetite while improving bone health. Tempeh also contains prebiotics, which may improve digestive health and reduce inflammation.
