Prep: 11 Make-Ahead Lunches

Keeping in line with the PREP theme of January, I’ve compiled a fantastic round-up of make-ahead lunches.  Many can be prepped on Sunday so that the whole week’s lunches are done at once!  Some are prepped the night before to ease up the morning chaos.  Some are cold, some are warm…. there is truly something for everyone!  AND, best of all, these delicious lunches are healthy choices brought to you by Registered Dietitians!  Check out the blogs that these recipes come from.  You will not be disappointed!  Enjoy!
