Meal Preppin’ Beef & Broccoli

Bro, do you even meal prep? Sometimes, when the stars align and our kids don’t require 100% of our attention, we can make time for meal prepping. Seriously though, with a little bit of time set aside Sunday afternoon, you can have 5 healthy, substantial lunches ready to walk out the door with you on your way to work. Say “buh-bye” to those liquor store snacks, because you’ll be set up for the whole week! It’ll be worth your time, promise!!
