Meal Prep and Planning Tips!

One of the biggest problems that most of my challengers stumble with is meal planning and meal prepping.  Finding a system that works for you will help you to first get organized. Then you can find a system that works best for you!

This system has been so helpful for me!  So, it’s only fair that I pay this knowledge forward and get you started on your own organizational system!  The first step to getting started is with organizing your meal plan.  I use a binder system to do this!

Here is what you need:

  1.  An array of healthy recipes
  2. Page separators
  3. Something to label with (labels or label maker)
  4. binder
  5. 3 hole punch

I separate my recipes into Breakfasts, Sides, Dinners, Meal Plans, 21 Day Fix, and Recipes to Try.  Then I take one blank calendar and fill out my weekly obligations that will keep me from making dinner.  So I have a month’s worth of dinners laid out in front of me.  From there, I collect all of the recipes that I need for the month and put them behind the calendar.  I save each month’s meal plan for future use.  I tend to plan 3-4 dinners per week, keeping in mind nightly obligations!  On those days, I opt for leftovers or a crockpot recipe!
