Sometimes meal plans are all about ease, while others are all about comfort. In spring, I feel a renewed motivation to feed my body so that I feel like the best version of myself. Maybe you feel the same way. While eating to feel our best looks different for each of us, for me at this time of year it means filling my plate with vegetables, while leaving carb-heavy foods like rice and pasta for another time.

This week’s Power Hour meal prep plan is all about enjoying the bounty of fresh spring-inspired flavors without relying on high-carb ingredients. Set aside about two hours to prep a week of delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners filled with seasonal produce, fresh herbs, and filling protein. Here’s how to put this meal plan into action.

Here is a list of the ingredients you will need for this week of low-carb spring-inspired meals. Make sure to shop your pantry, fridge, and freezer for ingredients from the list that you already have on hand. Staple ingredients like vegetable and olive oils, kosher salt, and black pepper are not included in the list, so make sure to check the levels on those. I organize my shopping list by department to make getting groceries more efficient.
