The concept of meal prepping is to prepare meals ahead of schedule. It saves a lot of time and is popular amongst busy professionals as well as fitness freaks. It also helps to reduce the portion size in your meals, helping you reach your nutrition goals. With this, you’ll easily avoid unhealthy options like fast food deliveries.
First thing’s first, you need to determine what your needs are. Why do you meal prep? Is it because of health concerns, to save time, or to save money? Once you’ve figured this out, you can narrow your list of what to buy and prep easily!
Next, make a checklist! Note down what you need during your weekly meal prepping session so you know exactly what to make each day. A list of all the ingredients you need to make your meals is vital if one of your goals for meal prepping is to save money.
Once you’ve got all your ingredients ready, it’s time to start cooking! Pick a day that’s convenient for you. Usually, people plan and prep on a weekend because they have ample time to sort out their weekly menu. Don’t forget to pack your meals in a container that is microwave safe, easy to be heated up after a long day at work.
Whatever it is, it’s good to know that there are no rules to meal prepping. Be creative and try to experiment with different approaches. Start with just dinner for one week and see how it works for you. You probably think prepping big chunks of food at once is time consuming, but believe me, it’s definitely worth the time.
