Meal prep saves time
Meal prep with me because it doesn’t have to be time-consuming and difficult. It doesn’t have to be complicated at all. I often prepare a few dishes right when I come home from the grocery store instead of putting the food away! It actually saves time because then I don’t have to put it all away then get it out and put it back again! Why waste time like that?
What’s special about the meals I’m cooking in this video? Real Food. Whole Food. Simple ingredients. Healthy ingredients! and…PURPLE sweet potatoes! I love using new foods that we’ve never tried before and I was not disappointed in the purple potatoes. My kids loved them too!
I’ve been packing my husband’s lunch for many years. We have a little sarcasm back and forth about my glass containers. They don’t always make it back home, unfortunately. I want him to eat wholesome home cooked meals and live to 100 so there needed to be a solution that would work for both of us.

Here’s the containers I used in the video: Bento Box 3 Compartment Meal Prep Containers w/ Clear Lids (10 Pack, 32 oz) – Reusable, Stackable, Airtight, Plastic Food Storage Containers – Certified BPA-Free. I admit I wasn’t sure I’d like them, but I was so impressed!
You can join the Meal Prepster community here. Here’s my super easy and delicious meal prep. My husband and 19-year-old son have already eaten four of these! Trust me, they are a huge hit! I’m ordering more of these containers because I plan to continue making these videos each month.
The cookware I mentioned in the video (for the butter & sorghum sauce) is Ceramacor Xtrema and it’s the only thing I use besides iron skillets and stainless steel. Read all about the Benefits of Xtrema Ceramic Cookware. The bowl I used to rinse my rice can be purchased through Amazon.
I’ve had several people ask where I got the cute Bear Oven Mitts, get yours here.
