Have you even seen the list of meal preps under $4 yet? Yup, it’s got us hooked too.
We filled this recipe with grass-fed ground beef, homemade plantain chips and lots of veggies, but the great thing about this recipe is how easy it is to customize. Swap the beef for carnitas or grilled chicken breast. Add in cheese if you are not whole30. Or black beans for an extra hit of protein. This works as lunch or dinner. Or breakfast if you are crazy like us. No matter when or how you eat it you will have this recipe on repeat. No questions asked.
