A Simple 4-Part Meal Prep Plan

Sometimes meal planning can be a little daunting, and, let’s face it, a bit boring. I get it. Instead I want to share with you a simple 4-step strategy to go into your week with. We’re going to make something to freeze, one that’s a breeze, something for flavour, and something to savour.

And for years I touted the classic vegetarian byline, “I don’t worry about it, there’s protein in basically everything.” Which is true. I mean, you can find a little…

A simple egg salad with celery and dill. Perfect for a quick, easy, and nutritious packed lunch.  I went for my first outdoor swim of the year this morning. Stockholm has had a less than pleasant spring, so the air was cold and my feet went painfully numb on the barefoot walk from the pool…
