Fridge Essentials

By Jackeline Soto

Have you heard the concept of meal plans or meal prep? Okay will a meal prep is supposed to be done in one or two days and it’s supposed to save you time, money, and keep you on track on your diet goals.

But here’s an issue with meal prepping: it’s usually the same thing over and over again for about two weeks to a month and sometimes longer. And since I’m restricting myself to only eating what I’ve made I’m most often than not tempted to eat some things that aren’t so good for me.

So instead I try to keep a fridge full of veggies and fruits so I have an endless amount of meal choices and I’m not as tempted since I’m not restricting myself.

What you should have:
