Our top tips…
Whip up egg muffins
These are so easy to throw together and one of our favorite things to make! Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with coconut oil and fill with egg whites, chopped spinach or zucchini, and your fave herbs + spices. You can add a little yolk if you want, too. Bake for 15-20 minutes! Store them in your fridge for up to four days. Grab a muffin or two while you’re on your way out for work or school!

Greens on the go
We pre-chop our cucumbers, carrots, and bell peppers and store them in our Meal Prep Containers in the fridge. Dip ’em in hummus or guac for M4.
Chop it like it’s hot
This is one of our favorite tips!! We use kitchen shears to chop up kale for salads and other meals (like THIS delicious Buddha Bowl). It’s so much easier to eat at the office.
Get your grill on
Grill or bake your lean proteins like chicken, ground turkey, or tempeh on Sunday and set them aside in a separate container. It makes cooking during the week super speedy!
This sh#@ is bananas…
Frozen bananas make your smoothie extra creamy, almost like a milkshake! Slice up your bananas and store them in freezer bags. Lay them out flat in the bag so they don’t stick together!
Ice, ice, baby
Freeze almond milk in ice trays. When the ice cubes melt, it won’t water your coffee down! You can also freeze coffee too! ;)
