The holidays are in full swing and your social obligations are increasing. Between small parties, school events, and family gatherings, office potlucks are on the calendar. How do you save time to organize regular meals in between? That’s where this Power Hour comes in.
This meal prep plan only takes an hour to put together, but at the end of it, you’ll have a full week of flexible and quick breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that you can enjoy around your extra-busy schedule. Move meals around as needed. You’ll even have some leftovers to stretch out to the weekend. It’s all about freeing you up for all the fun that has already begun (and shows no signs of slowing down) this time of year.
This week’s grocery list is a combination of vegetables, fruits, meats, dairy, and a handful of pantry items. It assumes staples like olive oil, salt, and pepper are already on hand.
Power Hour: How do I get the prep done
A week of fast, easy and flexible meals
Grab a jar of overnight oats or scoop some of it out of the bowl and top it with sliced almonds and blueberries or sliced banana. One morning is purposely left free to enjoy the treat someone brought to the office (because that freshly baked pumpkin bread your co-worker baked is definitely a must-try).
Power Hour Meal Preparation is the series where we help you put it all together. We’ll show you how to eat well during the week with an hour or two of Power Hour prep on the weekend. Every plan is different; mix and match to find your own personal sweet spot.
