Tips for making the best lunches
Make a plan
Meal planning is the best way I stay on track with lunch ideas. I will usually fill in what I plan to make for lunch in a meal planner and then make one or two lunch recipes for the week in advance. To incorporate even more variety, I plan to eat leftovers from dinner a couple times a week too!
Pick easy ideas
The best way to stick to lunch meal prep is to not overdo it. Choose a recipe that's easy to make & comes together in less than an hour from start to finish. The last thing you want to do is waste a whole day in your kitchen; it will feel like a huge burden and will be unsustainable in the long run.
Minimize the mess
As with picking an easy idea for your weekly lunches, choose recipes that will also save you time and mess in the kitchen. I usually whip up a one pot or sheet pan recipe because they cook in/on one dish, which minimizes clean up. The less dishes you have to do, the more motivated you'll be!
