7 Fresh Prep Dinner Ideas For Weeknight Meals

As life gets busier, it can be hard to find time to make healthy and delicious meals at home, come up with creative recipes, or make it to the grocery store to buy the ingredients you need.

Nothing hits the spot like a home-cooked meal, which is why it's no wonder that meal kits have become so popular in recent years. They provide a helping hand in planning and prepping so you can get fresh and delicious meals on the table every day.

With Fresh Prep, a meal-kit delivery service, you can choose tasty recipes (like Shrimp Pad Thai and Butter Chicken) to get you through the week and then receive a reusable cooler bag full of fresh, pre-cut ingredients and easy-to-follow directions straight to your doorstep.

Fresh Prep is all about providing residents of B.C. and Alberta with the ability to easily create healthy and yummy meals in their own kitchens.

With meals starting as low as $10 per serving, Fresh Prep's meal kits are affordable too, and if you use the code SCNAR21, you can get three free meals on your first order.

To get a taste of how Fresh Prep can help you plan your week, check out these seven delectable recipes that are ready to eat in 30 minutes or less.
