Last night I decided to volunteer my time to my local BOXTAGON gym to inspire my community how to meal prep!
It’s amazing how many people think meal prepping is hard or just don’t think of doing it! I have always been an organised kind of girl-IN THE KITCHEN! Anything else like getting flights on time or organising my life is a bit chaotic! I can organise everyone else’s life and give organising advice pretty easily but tend to leave anything for myself till the last minute-especially travel plans!
Last night I created some simple but tasty dishes that were clean, healthy and easily made in front of a group of 15 people.
I love cooking and I love talking but I always get a bit nervous doing my meal prep parties just in case their is a budding chef in the audience or something goes wrong! Luckily for me last night was a group of really nice people and I did’nt make any mistakes- well maybe the salmon skin was a ‘tad bit too crispy!’haha
Here are the recipes that I made last night for all of you that came to the class.
