Tasha’s 5 top tips for meal prep

1. Get someone to help – my hubby helps with food prep. So he’s either chopping veggies while I’m cooking over the stove or he cooks while I measure everything out.

2. Make sure you make something sweet for those cravings.

3. If you have the same veggies in other dishes, cut everything at once.

4. Rinse dishes as you go or they’ll end up taking over your kitchen haha

5. Do your food prep in the morning so you can relax in the afternoon.
