Shrimp Noodle Bowl

We're back in the swing of back to school and all the routines now that we're in October. So there is no excuse not to meal prep anymore! You have more control of your time and know exactly when you'll be able to prep. One tip I love for prepping lunches are making some type of bowl (smoothie bowls, protein bowls, any type of bowl!). You can meal prep all the different ingredients you'll put into your bowl and keep those in the fridge so they keep all week. Then when it's time to put the bowl together, all you have to do is measure out those ingredients and BOOM! 💥 You've got a wonderfully healthy lunch in 2 minutes flat!
