Do you sometimes wish you had all the time to prepare your favorite meal or at least prepare a fully fledged dinner, but your busy life will not let you? And all you have time and energy for is cereal with milk? Your answer meal prep!
Meal Prep & Planning is Essential to Stay Healthy
Meal planning is a great way to take some stress out of your life. When you know what you’ll be having for your meals you are less likely to stress about it. Some people try to figure out what to have all day long, but if you take a few hours during the month and figure out a menu you’ll be a lot less stressed.
When creating a menu it will take time. Count on about 2 to 3 hours depending on if you have favorite meals you are going to include or if you plan to go online or check cookbooks for recipes to try. But this time saves you from the stress of not having one, as well as money because then you’re not stopping on the spur of the moment to buy dinner.
Not only that, but it will help you stay healthy. Usually when you stop at the grocery store on the way home you’re hungry, tired and want something quick. You grab the freezer meals that are loaded with fat or preservatives because it is quick and easy when you get home.
By making a menu and planning your meals you will eliminate ninety percent of these trips. Instead you’ll make stops at the grocery store during allocated time when you have a plan and grocery list. A grocery list will also help you save money and say no to the snack items that always seem to end up in the grocery cart when you don’t have a plan.
By meal planning and prepping you’ll be able to determine what you eat. This will help you stay healthy because you’ll get to pick the recipes that you like and that are better for you. This is especially good if you work during the day and bring your own lunch.
Meal prep will also help you stay healthy. Take a day during the weekend and cut up all of your snacks for the week. Yes, this will take time, but you’ll be thankful that you have a grab and go snack when you’re heading out the door.
Also take the time to get your meals ready for the week. You’ll want to take out meat or freezer meals that are in the freezer that you’ll be using that week.
You’ll also want to get as much stuff ready as you can. You can boil pasta, cook beans, cut up vegetables and cook the meat ahead of time. Get all of your containers ready to go before you begin.
Being prepared for the week to come will help you stay healthy and save money. You’ll get to have great recipes all week long that will keep you look and feeling fabulous.
