Mom on a Mission: Meal Prep for an Easy Week


Say the phrase “meal prep” and it can conjure up pinterest-worthy photos of containers of food, lined up and ready to go right into your lunch box.

We’re here to let you know, it doesn’t have to be pretty (at all). What it needs to be, is simple and manageable. Because if it’s not, who’s going to do it? (Hint: not us)

In this episode of Mom on a Mission, our mom teamed up with Barb Nakanishi, a registered dietitian and batch cooking pro from OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital. She brought us fresh ideas to help spice up our meals and keep our cooking simple through the week with just an hour or two of cooking on the weekend. Watch the video above to learn some of Barb’s tricks and go-to meals, and then download our helpful tools below to get yourself started on the road to an easier week!
