🌳The Art of Meal Prep…what’s your weekly strategy or do you wing it most days? I’m a mixture of both, however finding a balance between ‘healthy’ and deliciousness is easier with a PLAN! 🥑🥕🥒🌶🍋🍐 This applies to most lifestyles, from your time strapped individuals⏱, buff bunny goals🏻, vegan converts or those wanting to create a lifestyle centred on mindful eating and vitality: PREP101.1.
1.PUT PEN TO PAPER: Write down your main aim in meal prepping and your particular requirements i.e. Dietary type//allergies//aversions//training goals//particular health concerns that you want to heal.
2. BABY STEPS: Start with one ‘meal time’ that you really struggle to get right i.e. for many its dinner’s! At the end of the day you are exhausted, tired and want grab anything to satiate your hunger, a prepped meal will make all the difference.
3. FOCUS: Choose a main ingredient for each meal, I find it easier to start with protein sources, then greens or vegetables. In the case of a plant based diet working on theme for the week works well, ensuring that weekly recipes use the same fruit & vegetables – that way nothing will go to waste + a more manageable shopping list .
4. MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU: Work, Family, Travel, Training, Friends, Social events pack up your schedule and the idea of taking a 2-4hrs on Sunday to shop, prep and store seem’s way to consuming? Break it down to suite your lifestyle and don’t be stuck on a particular day of the week:
___.Friday think about the week ahead and compile recipes
5. PREP FOR PREP: On Prep days make sure A. that you are feeling full and B. that you have a easy meal planned for that evening. The aim is to make your life easier, not adding another mountainous task! When all else fails I just try to chop everything up so it&039;s ready and easily accessible. What are your prep secerts?
