Summer Fridge Prep Grocery List + Meals!

 

Why fridge prep? 

I used to be in love with meal prepping! I spent nearly every Monday and Wednesday prepping my meals for the days ahead only to find multiple times I would either have way too much or not enough meals to cover the week.  As I started introducing intuitive eating into my lifestyle, I still wanted to be able to keep my meals as easy, quick and organized as before and slowly found myself prepping my fridge rather than my meals. 

The pros? 

  1. More variety, you can combine all the things you prep in different ways to create completely new and tasty meals! 
  2. More intuition, you can portion your meals based on how hungry you actually are rather than overriding this ever-important tool our bodies are equipped with!
