Eat Healthily – Try these meal prepping shortcuts
Are you eating real, whole food as much as you’d like? I have found that if you’re busy, stressed and have little spare time then the best possible way to live a healthy lifestyle and have healthy and delicious meals all week long is by meal prepping once for the whole week.
It saves you time, money, and stress, all the while allowing you to stay on track with eating healthily.
STEP 1: PLAN & SHOP
You can begin meal planning by making a list of recipes and meals for the upcoming week. Create a list based on what you will have for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners. Use this as your weekly shopping guide.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE FOOD
When you get home from the store keep out the items you plan to use for your meal prep. Pull up your meal plans and get to washing and cooking!
Many of my breakfast recipes are great for mid-morning snacks, and/or if I am in need of a breakfast on-the-go. I also recommend having a smoothie for your breakfast.
You can prepare big batches of veggies. Start with washing the greens, then set aside to dry and move onto slicing, dicing, and dividing veggies into containers for use in cooking and salads.
When a recipe calls for sautéed chicken or lean protein, cook it in big batches in your biggest pan or crock pot! That way, you’re only prepping chicken and/or lean meat once for all the recipes! I store the extra chicken in the freezer for use later.
STEP 3: PUT EVERYTHING TOGETHER TO MAKE THE RECIPES
To keep it simple, you can make a large salad in advance and then add the extras when your ready to eat it. If you’re on the go, divide it into containers.
For dinners, I typically make two favourite main dishes, which allows me to prepare and freeze in advance making it easy for during the week.
STEP 4: PUT IT ALL AWAY!
After all the food is prepped and the recipes are made, put everything in containers and place it in the fridge! That way, you’l have delicious, fresh, whole foods for all meals during the week in minutes.
