I always set time aside on Sundays for food prep. Check out my 30 minute meal prep video (linked below) on you tube or simply do this:
*Hard Boil a dozen eggs
*Make a batch of my 21 Day Reset Approved Tuna Salad (recipe below)
*Steam up some fresh veggies like green beans which hold up well and make great additions to salads and sides throughout the week.
Meal prep doesn't have to be a long drawn out process and you don't even have to make individualized ocntainers with pre-set meals. However, if you take 30 minutes to set yourself up fwith a few pre-made staples, you'll likely stay more accountable to your goals by reaching for a healthy meal over something out of convenience.

21 Day Reset Approved Tuna Salad:
Dressing: 2 freshly squeezed lemons (about 4 Tbsp), 2 Tbsps of dijon mustard, 2-3 Tbsp of Rice Wine Vinegar, a few cranks of coarse black pepper, a few shakes of cumin. Wisk with a fork in a small bowl.
Tuna Salad: use 4, five ounce containers of chunk white tuna packed in water, drain all cans and chunk the tuna into a large bowl/container. Stir in the dressing and add 2 Tbsp of sweet pickle relish (pick a relish that does not use corn syrup such as the relish at Trader Joes). Mix well, place in an air tight container and store in the fridge.
1/2 cup = 1 serving
*1 serving is one protein serving for the day (this counts as a full red container if you are following the portion container system)
Serving Suggestions: Serve on a bed of greens with cooled steamed green beans, tomatoes, and top with a little white balsamic dressing or lemon and sliced avocado.
