I am a busy working mom spending most of my weekdays traveling between my psychotherapy office and my college classroom. Meal prep and meal planning is vital if I want to eat healthy, homemade food.
Here is an example of this weeks protein bowl. You can get creative with whatever ingredients you like and even mix up the dressing! I measure out the ingredients into individual bowls or mason jars and store them in the fridge so I can grab one before I walk out the door.
1 large zucchini (made into zoodles)
1 large beet (made into noodles)
3 large carrots (shredded)
1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
