Ahh, April. It's probably one of my favourite months because at this point, you can really count on spring. You finally have hope that warmer weather’s on the way, and going outside and even doing activities after work seem much more feasible. I always start looking forward to life a little bit more once the flowers bloom and the trees blossom.
With the sunshine and warmer temperatures also comes a sense of renewal that you just don't get at New Year's because of the weather – a fresh start! I know personally I have a greater desire to start eating even better, considering all the fresh vegetables we have available at the market in the spring, and I also have more motivation to exercise and just partake in better self-care. The gloom and dark of winter are passing, and it’s time to step outside feeling our best, with more confidence!
So, today I've brought you some delicious recipes that are absolutely perfect for your spring meal prep, and will save you a ton of time so you can get back to what's most important: looking and feeling your best!
Let me break it down for you how this whole meal prep thing works. These are recipes that are:
1. Dinners made in 30 minutes or less
2. Make-ahead meals
3. Quick and easy lunch bowls
4. Grab and go
5. Can be made in a slow cooker
Basically, living a healthy lifestyle in my book is all about what's EASY, and striving for balance.
Eating well and exercising certainly aren't the only kinds of self-care that are important though! Having a solid oral healthcare routine, for instance, is often overlooked when it comes to taking care of yourself. Like your body and diet, it's worth it to keep your teeth in tip-top shape!
I mean, you already probably spend tons of time and money on other kinds of self-care. Am I right about that? If you can prioritize the gym, cleaning your house, grocery shopping and meal prepping, why not take care of your teeth? A little money spent now will certainly save you a lot of time and money in the long run!
In fact, April is not just about spring and good food. It's also Oral Health Month – and regular trips to the dentist are key to healthy teeth, which just adds to your overall health and well-being! A healthy smile also helps you feel more confident! Now that we've got all of bases covered when it comes to healthy living, it's time to put a little bit of that into action with these fresh, healthy and delicious meal prep recipes!
