it’s going to be a GOOD week 🙂
as far as food-prep goes, I didn’t really know what I was doing.. 😉 so I just followed the many strands of advice I’d taken from websites and chatting with ladies who do this thing on the regular!
because this was my first time trying this out, and I was snapping away with my camera, it took me more like 3 or 3 1/2 hours, but I have a feeling it will go much more smoothly (and quickly!) the next time around.
MAKE SURE YOU LET YOUR PRODUCE DRY before storing it. 🙂
I love that I’ll have the variety of the salad (cold lunch) or the rice, meat, and veggie (hot lunch) 🙂
if nothing else, I LOVE how organized my refrigerator is!! ❤
I attempted to organize it further by designating the top shelf to breakfast items
middle shelf for lunches and snacks
bottom shelf for items prepared specifically for dinners/ leftovers/ miscellaneous/ etc.
(and that cookie sheet at the bottom has home made granola bars firming up in it!! more on that later!!)
I’m excited to tell you more of what did and didn’t work as the week goes on!
(and also if being so organized helps me eat more regularly and healthfully!)
but as of now… I’m loving it! 🙂
any tips? thoughts? 🙂
till next time!
