Before you get the hang of it, “meal prep” might make you think of a day spent slaving away in the kitchen, using up every last pan and Tupperware container you own. When you put it that way, ordering takeout sounds so much easier. But getting ready for the week doesn’t have to be such a process. As long as you find easy recipes and cook enough servings at once, you can be in and out of the kitchen in an hour. Seriously! Try one or two of these recipes and get cookin’... you'll be fulfilling those New Year's resolutions in no time.
Ten minutes of prep and your work here is done. Step one: Roast some taters and broccoli. Step two: Grab your favorite barbecue sauce (Annie’s makes a good one) and brush it on chicken breasts, then add to the sheet pan to bake. Step three: Shred and serve! And pack away the leftovers, of course.
