  3. FRESH VEGGIES, HUMMUS AND BOILED EGGS. You’ll almost always have (or should have these staples) in your fridge.

  5. FRUIT SALAD + HOMEMADE PROTEIN BAR. Utilize what’s in season at your local farmer’s market. This makes your fruit salads different at all times of year. Either add on some sprinkled chia seeds and slivered almonds or accompany it with a homemade protein bar.
