We’ve all had days when we feel like we can’t even find a moment to catch our breath, let alone squeeze in a workout or sit down for a meal. We bounce from appointments to meetings to errands with almost every minute scheduled down to the wire. Sure, those days can be exhilarating, but if you leave your house one minute late in the morning, your whole day is thrown off – and your kids really don’t want to be picked up late from school (again).
On days like those, making time for meal prep might be the very last thing on your mind. In fact, it might not appear on your to-do list at all. Who has time to worry about eating healthfully when you can barely find time to eat at all?
The answer: Everyone. If you can spare just 5 minutes, you have all the time you need to put together a nutritious, power-packed meal. Don’t believe us? Then take it from Autumn Calabrese. The creator of 21 Day Fix and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is no stranger to an overloaded schedule. Between meetings at Beachbody HQ, on-camera workouts, and catching her son’s after-school activities, Autumn’s day is a sprint from start to finish. And to keep herself on top of her game, she has mastered the art of super-fast, super-healthy meal prep. If she can do it, so can you!
