    This is the first recipe I made from the manual and it is SO good! Simple and tasty for meal prep and I am set for the week.

    If you make 10 boxes of each meal do you eat 2 everyday for 5 days?

      No I would only make 10 meals if I was also prepping for my roommates. I don’t personally prep meals and plan to eat them more than 1 time a day

    This one is a keeper for sure! So easy to make and I love how I only had to use one pot.

    This recipe is great! I substituted almond milk and used a little more veggies. Going to make this much more frequently.

    One of the easiest and quicker meal prep recipes. I added celery because I had to do something with it before it went bad. Also, I actually ran out of garlic powder so I subbed it for a garlic salt + onion powder mixture. And, of course, hot sauce. I always like to give my foods a lil’ kick.

    Hey Josh,
    I love all of your meals! They have taught me how to cook my own food. I am trying to view the weight loss version of this recipe, but whenever I select the weight loss option, the provided ingredients don’t change. Let me know what I’m doing wrong. Thanks!

    This one is great, and I have to say that using macaroni noodles enhances it significantly. The macaroni noodles help everything fold in together more evenly and you get a nice amount of pasta with every bite.
