Eating healthy can feel like a challenge in our busy lives. But with a little bit of planning, you can make healthy eating easier for yourself by meal prepping. By taking the time to plan your meals, you’ll save yourself time and energy during the week and have delicious, healthy options ready to go when it’s time to eat. Here’s a few ideas on how to get started with meal prep and make healthier eating easier!
The Basics of Meal Prepping
Meal prepping is about planning ahead—determining what meals you will have for the week and then doing some cooking or food prep ahead of time so that you don’t have to think about it each day. This can look different for everyone. You might spend one day per week grocery shopping, cooking, and preparing your meals or snacks for the next few days; or perhaps one hour every night getting tomorrow’s breakfast together; or maybe dedicate an entire Sunday afternoon cooking all your meals for the week. It’s up to you!
Tips & Tricks
– Start small. Don’t try to do too much at once. Start with just a couple of breakfasts or lunches on Sunday and slowly work your way up towards prepping all your meals for the week.
– Get organized! Make sure you have everything you need before beginning. Have all ingredients measured out, pans oiled, and pots filled with water before you even turn on the stove. This will help save precious time while cooking!
– Utilize leftovers. If there are leftovers from dinner last night, repurpose them into lunch today! This helps reduce waste while also saving time in the kitchen (and money).
– Invest in good containers. Having reliable containers will help keep your food fresh throughout the week so that it actually tastes good come Monday morning!
– Take advantage of a nutrition coach if needed. A nutrition coach can provide valuable insight into which foods are best for YOUR body type, lifestyle and goals as well as teach sustainable habits that lead to lifelong success without deprivation
