Meal prep Sundays: Chickpea-spinach couscous

It's Sunday, which means it's meal prep time!

There's no better feeling on a Sunday evening than feeling prepped for the week ahead of us. Whether that's having our work for the week ahead done, having our space cleaned up or my favourite, having my lunches for the week ready to go. I love feeling like I have my whole lunch break ahead of me without having to spend half of it trying to make something -and trying to make something that's fast and good for me. 

This chickpea curry is quick. tasty and a cinch to make – plus it's packed full of nutrients! Get meal prepping!
