After the holidays, I wanted to get back to meal prepping my meals again. Meal prepping helps with sticking to your macros, being less worried about what you will eat each day and sticking to your food budget with money.
Of course, there are many other reasons why meal prepping is great to do. One of the first items I meal prepped was this pork loin roast recipe.
Picking a meat for the week is an easy way to meal prep. You can make this choice of meat just for one main meal or use it for both.
For this pork loin roast, I have been eating it with my lunches at work with some melted butter on top of the pork. This has made making my lunches a breeze with an easy way to add more fat to my meal.
