Meal prep is probably one of the best things I’ve found to keep on track with eating healthy. For the most part, I work a nine to five type schedule now (more like seven to four but hey who’s counting). I started meal prepping when I was a shift worker in Miami and if I thought meal prep was important then, it’s about 5x more important now. It’s so easy as a Monday through Friday-er to get off track or not feel like making something healthy because I’m tired after working all day and hitting the gym after work. Take-out may be an easy option for a lot of us, but it’s also the expensive and unhealthy option about 99% of the time. Save yourself the dilemma and prepare to have a healthy week ahead of time!
The key to getting started with meal prep is having a plan before you get to the grocery store. Which is generally a good rule of thumb for grocery shopping, I know. It would probably behoove me to listen to that advice regarding Target trips. I have literally gone there for laundry detergent before…$250 later and I’ve got a whole cart full of crap I probably didn’t need to buy. Standard ops for me.
I’ve recently consolidated all of my best meal prep advice and exclusive meal prep ready recipes into an eBook! Check it out by clicking the eBook tab on the menu above or click this picture:
