Meal Prep Your Heart Out With These 10 Yummy Meals

Meal prepping saves so much time during the week. Instead of having to cook dinner every single night and figuring out what you want to eat each time, you just whip up a big batch of one meal on Sunday and you have it for dinner that week. Just a simple reheat and you're done! Meal prepping is wonderful, but sometimes it can be hard to think of new meals to make each week. Here are 10 ideas for you to check out if you've run out of things to cook or just want to try something new.

1. Chicken Burrito Bowl


This dish is super simple to put together! Store each component of the dish separately and then layer them in a bowl when you're ready to eat.

2. Zucchini Noddles with Turkey Meatballs


I am a HUGE zucchini noodle fan, but if they aren't your cup of tea, substitute them for regular spaghetti noodles. Many stores sell frozen pre-made meatballs if you didn't want to make them yourself.

3. Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry


The teriyaki sauce in this dish really takes the traditional stir fry to the next level. Put this dish over some jasmine rice and you've got it made.

4. Mexican Stuffed Peppers


Stuffed peppers look difficult to make, but they are one of the easiest things to throw together. Simply make the stuffing in a pan and scoop it into the peppers. When you're ready to eat them bake them in the oven and enjoy.

5. Vegan Sweet Potato Bowl


For those of you who are vegan or vegetarian here, this is the dish for you! If you're not, then add meat or tofu.

6. Cauliflower Chowder


This creamy chowder is great for when it is cold outside. It is similar to a potato soup but it's better for you.

7. Honey Sriracha Meatballs


Spice things up a bit with these delicious meatballs. The honey balances out the spiciness of the Sriracha.

8. Roasted Vegetables and Chicken


Substitute your favorite veggies. Drizzle with olive oil and some seasoning.

9. Chicken Pad Thai


Pad Thai is a very tasty dish! If you get tired of chicken you can always make it with pork, beef, or seafood.

10. Cilantro Lime Chicken with Cauliflower Rice


Cauliflower rice is the healthier option, but this dish is also great with white rice or jasmine rice.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
