Life is busy and sometimes so hectic that you can’t be bothered with figuring out what you’re going to eat for the day. But this usually results in bad habits that leave you eating out too much or making unhealthy, quick choices when it comes to food. Meal prepping can help you stay healthy, organized, and will put your diet back on track. Use this guide to help you easily plan out your weekly meals.
Make a Plan
The first step to successful meal prep is to plan out what you’re going to eat. Taking the time to sit down and think about the foods you want to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout the week will help you get a better idea of how much prepping time you need to set aside. Looking at your week also helps you see when you may not need a meal because you have a work lunch or a dinner out already planned. Plus, prepping menus in advance ensures you can control what you eat and makes sure healthy foods are a high priority on the list.
