Meal Prep Tips
We’ve all said it. Always at this time of year. “This is the year I will workout more and eat healthy.” We have good intensions. You start off on a roll. You’re a machine week one. Fitting those workouts in, eating healthy salads, and skipping out on cocktail hour. Then week two comes along with the excuses. Busy schedules, work stresses, and the kids. I get it. I’ve been there many, many times. I have found the only thing that works is meal prepping. Sure, it can be a little daunting, but if you plan ahead it makes a world of difference. Knowing I have a healthy meal sitting right there in the fridge deters me from grabbing the crap I shouldn’t be eating. I’m going to share with you 10 basic food prep tips that will set you up for success. Just block out an hour on a Sunday and you’ll be ready.
Meal Prep Tips
1. Cut up veggies for snacks
2. Wash all of your fruit
3. Bake 1lb of boneless chicken breast and cut into strips: you can use them for lunches or on top of salads
4. Make half a dozen hardboiled eggs: quick breakfast, snack, or on top of salads
5. Bake a couple servings of fish
6. Make a cup of quinoa
7. Make a cup of brown rice
8. Steam or saute some green veggies
9. Make up some servings of raw nuts
10. Put together a couple mason jar salads
Extra Meal Prep Tips
Grab some containers and make up some lunches or dinners with your prepared foods. These simple tips will get you on your way. So before you grab that chocolate chip granola bar that you “think” is healthy, or get a sub for lunch because you’re pressed for time, be prepared with something better. It makes it so much easier to keep on track toward your goal. Throw a few things in your bag before you head to the office, or on your way to run errands all day. Best of luck in 2015 and beyond!
Meal Prep Tips are for you! Take advantage and make sure you’re doing what you can to get it done! Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure. – Confucius
Happy New Year everyone!
