It is that time of the year, the library is full of students trying to cram as many facts as possible to make sure they get all the marks they can in their exams. As much as it is important to remember that differential equation (that you just can’t) it is also important to take care of something very important -> YOU!
Seems obvious but students (including me) seem to forget the benefits of taking care of themselves has in prepping for exams. In my opinion, eating good food is always the best way to ensure you are at your optimum when revising. One way is of course, to someone cook for you but not many people have that access – don’t worry, Meal Prep is here to save the day!
I have already posted before about the importance and recipes I found useful for meal prep. And got great feedback for that, so I thought why not share some more new recipes – maybe even something Indian or Chinese? The spices will surely get your brain working at its optimum! Many people think meal prep has to be a set menu set by the many YouTube videos you can see, NOT TRUE. As long as you have a balanced meal readily access – that’s you done with meal prep. For example, I do not follow the many meal prep recipes out there on the web (not saying you shouldn’t, they are super easy to make) but instead I make sure there is a rice / noodle dish + stir fry / stew + fruits for each meal. And of course, a wee bit of chocolate or fruits/hummus/bell peppers (healthier option) for the 3 pm snack attacks. Doing this, should be enough and that’s your meal prep for the whole week! Right… now for some recipes I found online.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of any good YouTube channel which specializes in easy Chinese meal prep dishes but there are a lot of individual ones on YouTube and they are all only a google search away. But as usual, I will recommend my favourite YouTube channel for anything meal prep related, The Domestic Geek: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQOQ3RxX_o-B-68wSKdcfMQ
Please check out the links for the videos of how to make these dishes. Have fun cooking and best of luck for your exams guys!
