Buying items from the supermarket will save you so much money. Be daring, buy in bulk and make the most out of the freezer. You can freeze almost everything, herbs, cooked meat and cheese! Don’t be afraid of the large quantity, just got for it, it will save you a lot, trust me.
Meal prep is so perfect and important for busy, working individuals. Meal prep can make you feel in control, organised, and most of all keen and ready to go for another day of clean eating. Being in control is a key part in dieting success. Cook 3 meals at once, or more if you can manage!
When you focus on weight loss or even muscle gain, it is so important to make sure you have the right balance in portions that is right for your body type. Prepping your meals allows you to have complete control over what you are consuming and when. Most restaurant ‘healthy options’ are oversized and not necessarily as nutritious as they may sound.
Tailor your nutrition based on your own specifications and mix it based on what you like! As I mentioned before, how do you know what is put into your meal in a restaurant or a fast food option.
Working hard can mean that it can be hard to stop and take time out to eat a nutritional meal, especially when you don’t have time. It’s moments like these that meal prep is made for – all you need to do is grab your prepared meal, enjoy a lean protein snack and get back to it. You will find that that even from a small snack during the day your blood sugar won’t drop, you brain will be fuelled and your stomach will be satisfied ready to continue at work!
Meal prep will help you to avoid unhealthy options. Although they may seem easier when you are in a hurry, grabbing an unhealthy option in a rush is more expensive and more than always less nutritional.
