We've all been there. You've gotten into a pretty good routine, you're cooking at home, and then one day you open the fridge and realize you couldn't possibly talk yourself into eating anything you have. You are officially stuck - in a food rut. Once you have a few tactics in mind, it's actually pretty easy to break free from a food rut, no matter how deep you may think it is.
Setting aside a couple of hours only one day a week is all it takes to be able to eat as soon as you get home most nights, no muss no fuss. Meal prep works because, as it turns out, it's the planning, chopping, and cleaning that takes up most of the time in cooking. When you do all of that only once, you save a TON of time and knock out most of the week's kitchen work in one swoop.
