We know your time is important to you
Meal prepping is a trend that’s been making its way around nutrition and lifestyle blogs in 2020. The pictures are stunning and the meals look great — but is it really feasible? And if it is, is it worth it?
Setting aside a little time to prepare your meals for the week can make a big difference, save you time and stress too. Mapping out high-quality and nutritious dishes will have you energized and excited to eat.
Here are a few tips for prepping like a pro:
- Focus on color variation in your dishes: Having a wide spectrum of hues on your plate is a good clue that you’re covering many different food groups, like carbohydrates, veggies, and fruits!
- Pre-cook meats for easy heating and distribution: Cooking strong proteins in advance will allow you to create filling meals, without the intimidation of a long prep period.
- Prep for your prep: Setting aside a certain time each week to create your meals will make the new habit easy and fun. You can also create motivation by treating yourself to some new food storage containers that are ready to be filled.
Just set aside some time each week for meal prep and you’ll be ready to dine quickly with less stress too.
