If meal prep is on your list of New Years Resolutions: 1. Woohoo!  2. This post is for you! OR If you are someone that hasn’t thought about incorporating meal prep into their life (yet) this guide is also for you and a great place to get that meal prep ball rollin’. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,  meal prep is my life saver. Here at Fit Foodie HQ we always have the fridge stocked with meals and snacks that we eat throughout the week. We love to eat out, but after those long work days or when we are craving a little extra something (aka one of our delish ball recipes) between meals, our food/snacks are already prepped and ready to go.

Since we get so many questions about our favorite meal prep essentials, We have put together a guide to meal prepping which includes list of all of our favorite meal prep essentials so you can start the year off meal-prepping like a champion!

Having the right tools in the kitchen makes cooking easier and more fun. Sometimes I hear talk about how much work it is to meal prep and cook during the week.

I could go on and on about my favorite kitchen gadgets. Instead, I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorites!
