I have come to realize that "prep" scares people. I am not sure what it is that does it. It does not take a tremendous amount of time to make all of the things. Even when I had my longest list it wasn't more than a couple hours AND that includes crockpot chicken cooking.
Here are some samples of things I would make...

How did I first figure out what it was that I wanted to prep? Honestly, I looked at the Starbucks boxes that my husband and I would constantly grab. After that, I began to search through Pinterest for specifics like breakfast sandwiches, overnight oats, egg muffins or pancake muffins. Each week we'd try something new until I found a winner. It was actually really fun having all of these different foods to try. Variety was key.
