Meal prepping is the act of preparing meals ahead of time and packaging them separately for each day of the week. This is a great way to simplify your eating schedule and free up time while practicing better eating habits. If you are trying to stick to a strict diet, meal prepping takes the stress out of deciding what to eat on the spot.
Next time you are out grocery shopping, stock up on all the necessary ingredients that your recipes require for 5-7 days. Double up on serving sizes so that you can divide each meal up accordingly to last for the week. Focus on healthy food and snack options to keep your body fueled with essential nutrients.
Meal prepping is great for:
- Working professionals who are trying to be more productive and manage their time around a busy schedule
- Parents who want to have quick and easy access to healthy meals
- Anyone who wants to eat healthily
- Those who are trying to save money
