But a little planning can go a long way to make it much easier to prep delicious meals from scratch — yes, even on a busy weeknight. Now that you have your meal decisions sorted out, write a list for all of the ingredients you need. A well-stocked kitchen is clutch, especially if you skip steps 1 and 2 and decide to do a little improvising. Once you get home, to allow for easy grab-and-go snacking and quicker meal prep, wash and chop fruits and vegetables that will hold up well for a few days in the fridge.
