Smoothie Prep.

Meal Prep.

Let’s be honest, who has time for meal prep? From someone who loves to cook and eat healthy I have never really been a fan of meal prepping. This isn’t because I am lazy  but more so because I actually enjoy the act of going to the grocery store, and cooking everyday. Annnnd well, I am not really a fan of cooked food sitting in the refrigerator more than a day. I know, maybe it’s weird but it’s just how I am. I came across this idea over the weekend as far as a meal prep that I could relate to and I couldn’t wait to share. In my last post I mentioned I bought a Vitamix which can be used for all sorts of things, but in this case I am focusing on smoothies. Actually now that I think about it, soups and juices can be prepped ahead as well. I do know from experience that prepping fruit can be a 10 minute longer excursion that you don’t have time for in the morning so with a little time on Sunday (or whatever day) you can throw some fruits and veggies in a mason jar, label, and WaLa! you have your smoothie just about ready. I always love new ideas of getting healthy and making things just a little bit easier. What are some of your favorite meal prep ideas?

Vitamix S30

I have been wanting one of these for yearrrrrrs. Maybe that’s an exaggeration but it’s been on my list for a while. Sometimes with big purchases I have trouble committing to, until well, it goes on sale. CHA CHING! A Vitamix on sale for $349? Yes, Please. This is not only a great blender but can be used for soups, food processing, frozen desserts, juices, milks, dressings, nut butters, batters, dips & spreads, flours, soups, purees and doughs. If you love to be in the kitchen this might be your newt favorite appliance. I am glad I made the purchase. Look for recipes to come via the S30 Vitamix in my kitchen!
