Just a bit summary so that you won’t confused.

Meal prep is basically spent 1-day preparing meals including breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack for a certain amount of weeks.

Salads are the easiest meal prep you can do. If you do not have any jars, you can make them in a container.

But you must remember that you need to let the leafy green dry completely before going into the container or else it will turn bad very quickly.  Via The Starving Chef Blog.
