If you know you have a busy week coming up, try not to make unrealistic goals when it comes to meal preparation. Instead of planning to cook dinner when you get home at 9 pm, set yourself up for success by having easy options to throw together! We always highlight Trader Joe’s because they just have so many great options when it comes to convenience.

For example, this meal is all Trader Joe’s and all of the ingredients can be thrown together on the fly!
– 1 cup Mediterranean style salad kit with included dressing
– 1/2 cup steamed lentils ready to eat
– 3 oz just chicken
– 6 cherry tomatoes

Exchanges: 2 veg, 2 starch, 4 meat, 1 fat
