20 Lunches You Can Meal Prep on Sunday


If there is one thing I’m glad no one is keeping close tabs on, it would definitely be the amount of money I’ve frittered away purchasing weekday lunches from restaurants. Halfway through a tedious workday you don’t just want something comforting and delicious for lunch, it is a downright necessity for survival.

Utilizing your Sunday afternoon for a little meal prepping not only pads your wallet with more disposable income, you’re helping to cut down on the wasteful materials of to-go food packaging AND saving yourself countless calories by mindfully preparing your own meals. Before you cue up your Sunday HBO shows, devote a couple hours to setting yourself up for a week full of lunch break meals you can actually look forward to.
