meal prep ideas with limited ingredients

Grocery stores are struggling with keeping shelves stocked lately. You may be having a hard time finding things you need, or practicing social distancing and avoiding the store all together. But I’ve got your back! Keep these ideas in mind if you’re limited on meal prep ingredients.
