Healthy Meal Prep Ideas And Food You Could Prep With Mason Jar!

Cooking is fun, but cooking after work every day might sound like a less-than-enjoyable (if not dreadful) thing to do. While most of us struggle to think about what to eat before every meal, some people out there are prepping their meals ahead of time so as to avoid any last-minute hassle, and most importantly, to eat more healthily. Sounds impossible to you? What if I say that I used to think the same before I tried out the following healthy meal prep ideas? Intrigued now? Read on!

The following recipes will have you covered for 3 days of meal prepping ideas that you can try out on a weekend for the week ahead (well, half a week I should say). This is a pretty good start for people (like me) who dread cooking on weekday nights. Let’s waste no more time and get started!

Breakfast

1. Turkey & Veggie Omelette Rolls

1

    Packed with solid protein and the different nutrients from bell peppers and spinach, this omelette roll is super easy to make. Just make a few and heat them up in the morning.

    2. Fruit-on-the-Bottom Yogurt Cups

      Why choose store-bought yogurt when you can make it yourself? With different mix-in ideas for the topping combinations, this yogurt cup is a great way for you to start a summer morning without all the hassle in the kitchen.

      3. Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

      3

        Want to satisfy your carb cravings but still want to stay healthy? Why not give these hearty oatmeal pancakes a try? The usual all-purpose flour is substituted with whole wheat flour and rolled oats, giving you enough dietary fiber for the day. This recipe allows you to make roughly 8 pancakes which you can store in the fridge.

        Lunch

        1. Tomato Basil Broccoli Noodle and White Bean Salad

        4

          Yes, you read that right. Broccoli noodles are full of Vitamin C and K! They are fun to make and easy to prep. Simply spiralize the broccoli and prepare the salad dressing. Combine them and your refreshingly delicious lunch is ready!

            3. Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls

              Dinner

              1. 10-ingredient Slow Cooker Vegetable and Quinoa Stew

              9

                Soup as a healthy meal prep idea — sounds exciting, right? This time, we will need a helping hand from your slow cooker, which can turn your favorite veggies into a hearty, nourishing soup when you don’t have the time to cook.

                2. Fresh Vegetable Crunchy Rolls With Sriracha & Soy Sauce Tofu And Peanut Sauce

                8

                  3. Pork and Vegetable Stir Fry

                              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                              Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

                              Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

                              1. Make the Windows Your Own

                              When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

                              One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

                              2. Put up Some Art

                              If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

                              Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

                              3. Improve the Aroma

                              A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

                              Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

                              4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

                              A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

                              There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

                              5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

                              If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

                              Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

                              6. Improve Your Air Quality

                              One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

                              The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

                              7. Fill it with Plants

                              Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

                              They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

                              8. Change the Doorknobs

                              Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

                              Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

                              9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

                              There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

                              Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

                              10. Fresh Cut Flowers

                              You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

                              You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
