Bulk Meal Prepping
I have been getting very busy lately so I decided the best way to stay on top of my nutrition is bulk meal prepping. The best way for me is to make a ton of protein options, whole grain options, and breakfast options.I do not like making the same individual meals for every day of the week, I get tired of eating the same exact thing. Besides, different food equals different nutrients!
This bulk meal prepping session should last Joey and I about 3-4 days. The breakfast will last probably for two weeks.
