Grabbing and going made healthy

To make eating on the go healthy and easy, try prepping foods that can be used to make various meals and options.

We can spend one day prepping and the rest of the week eating meals that are as easy as a frozen pizza or canned/boxed meals but way healthier.

This took me 1.5 hours to prep. Can you find that time once a week?
