Just a bit summary so that you won’t confused. Meal prep is basically spent 1 day to prepare meals including breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack for a certain amount of weeks. But I’ll say the best meal prep is for 1 week so you won’t get bored by eating the same food for couple weeks.
Some people might say that you need fancy ingredients for meal prep. No! You do not need that. This meal prep recipes that I prepared for you do not consist of something fancy instead you can pick all the ingredients at your local store nearby. Super easy and quick for your super productive week!

Salads are the easiest meal prep you can do. If you do not have any jars, you can make it in a container.

But you must remember that you need to let the leafy green dried completely before going into the container or else it will turn bad very quickly. Via The Starving Chef Blog.
