2️⃣ Get colorful with your meal prep!!
We are designed to be attracted to color! Use beautiful colorful produce like yellow bell peppers, blue or pink berries, different colors of greens, red tomatoes, orange carrots, purple cabbage and onions!! And carbs can be colorful too! Orange sweet potatoes, yellow corn, purple yams and orange and yellow winter squashes are all colorful carbs you can use to make your meals look for fun!
3️⃣ Try a new recipe every week!
There are so many healthy exciting recipes to choose from! Sometimes you won’t like a vegetable like kale or broccoli until you try it a new way and then you’ll love it! Trying something new each week will keep your meal prep exciting!
4️⃣ Switch up your spices!
Add more flavor and make your meals more exciting by changing the spices you use! You can make those chickpeas taste different for each meal depending on what you use to flavor them!
