On today’s episode, Steph walks you through how she meal preps. Her approach is different than Dr. Elana’s in that she meal preps throughout the week depending on her schedule, instead of having a dedicated meal prep day.

Similar to episode #120 with Dr. Elana, Steph shares her three tips for before, during, and after meal prep to help you be consistent week after week. She answers commonly asked questions and highlights key takeaways to help you start meal prepping or to level up, if you’re already in the practice.
