One of my top meal prep tips is to keep it simple, especially if you are just starting out. If you try to prep too many meals at once, or choose overly-complicated recipes, it can become overwhelming, and you're less likely to make it a habit that sticks.

Tips for 30 minute meals:
- use your appliances- use your Instant Pot, slow cooker or rice cooker to prep meal components, freeing up your hands
- use 'non recipes'- if I really want to be quick, I just assemble ingredients and call it a meal. Bento boxes with pepperoni sticks, cheese and veggies = a snack. Trail mix is another easy one. Overnight oats are great for breakfast.
- purchase prepared ingredients- pre-cut vegetables or pre-made dips/sauces are super convenient
