What is Meal Prep?

Meal prep means you make a large batch preparation of meals once or twice a week in order to last for 4-5 days. It is a great way to save time and money because you only cook a few times a week as opposed to cooking every single day while benefiting from fewer trips to the grocery store. Plus you have fewer chances to hit the fast food or restaurant for lunch if you have a full meal waiting for you in the refrigerator! If you’re having lunch at work or on campus, meal prepping is an excellent way to plan for healthy and budget-friendly meals.

What are the benefits of meal prep?

  • You will save more money because there is no need to buy your lunch every day.
  • Meal prep helps you eat healthier in the long run because you reduce the possibility of impulse cravings.
  • You will reduce stress: no more head-scratching on what to eat/cook etc…

Tips for getting started meal prepping

  • Start small. Start with one meal that is difficult for you to handle on a daily basis. It can be breakfast, lunch, or snacks – they’re all great places to start.
  • Make a schedule so you quickly get into the habit of meal-prepping. Sunday afternoon or Saturday mornings are great times to set aside for meal-prepping.
  • Develop a core set of recipes you can rely on. Over time, you’ll be able to customize them and create a meal rotation that will be super easy to cook for.
