The reason I love meal prepping so much is because it allows me to make healthier choices when I'm short on time or not in the mood to spend a lot of time in the kitchen- essentially it lets the healthy choice be the easy choice for me and my family. One of my go-to recipes during Ramadan was my Spicy Salmon Burger that I shared for www.self.com. The great thing about these burgers is that they freeze extremely well! This means you can make a big batch and keep them in the freezer-perfect for grilling season or quick weeknight meals.
One of my secrets to a week filled with healthy meals is meal prepping! However, not every recipe is cut out for big batch cooking and leftovers - that's okay too! I like to have the flexibility of having meals on hand and not feeling like I HAVE to cook every single day. Most weeks, I will cook 2-3 times, ensuring there are plenty of leftovers for next day meals. This really helps me take out the daily stress of "what's for dinner?!".

I never knew what to do with cabbage besides chop it up finely and add it to "stuff" until I made these cabbage rolls and it was a game changer! The combination of ground beef, brown rice, and cabbage make it a hearty meal that the whole family will enjoy.
