10 Tips to become a Meal Prep Pro.⠀

Consider this your ultimate guide to saving money, reducing your waste and sticking to your nutritionists recommendations to eat quality, healthy, balanced meals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


1.Start on Sunday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Developing a planning habit. You can begin by planning just a few meals or snacks for the week ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


2. Plan for and repurpose leftovers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is my biggest meal prep hack. Don’t spend more time cooking than you need to by cooking enough for leftovers the next day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


3. Consider all your groups. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Where are your vegetables, whole grains, protein, fruit and fish. Make sure all are evident across the week to keep meals fresh, diverse and nutritious⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


4. Containers, containers, containers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Food storage is the ultimate meal prep tool. Opt for some eco friendly options like glass which is also microwave safe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


5. Maintain the staples. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Keep these present in your pantry to streamline your meal prep process and simplify meal creation. Whole grains, legumes, canned goods, oils, nut butters, trail mix etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


6. Designate a place for saving and storing recipes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Keep them in a location you can easily reference at any time ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


7. Head to the grocery store armed with a list (or shop online). Having a list curbs your temptation to buy food you don’t have a plan to use. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


8. Avoid shopping while you’re hungry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a killer. Just take my word for it. Don’t do it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


9. Use your freezer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cooking certain foods in large batches and freezing them for later is a great way to save time and reduce waste ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


10. Prep smart not hard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Pre cut vegetables and microwaveable and whole grains are typically more expensive but if the convenience factor is more important - do it!

You've got this.
