My Recipes: Spicy Chicken in Tomato and Thai Red Curry Sauce + Quinoa for a Sunday Meal Prep

I’ll share the recipe from what I prepared last week below, but first let’s talk about containers.  I can’t tell you how important these are to have on hand because you’re prepping anywhere from 4 – 8 separate meals depending on how much time you have on a Sunday.

I usually use ceramic containers with reusable plastic lids or sometimes, I use microwaveable containers that I also recycle (SAVE MOTHER EARTH! hahaha).
