Meal Prep for Beginners – the Hows and Whys
I remember when I first started meal prepping that it literally took me HOURS to complete. I did not want to spend hours in the kitchen so I had to figure out how to make meal prepping doable for me. I knew it would save my weekday schedule but I needed a better way!
How to Create A Simple Meal Prep System
Keep it simple! The easiest thing to start with meal prep is to figure out where your weekly pain point is. For me – that was lunch! I found myself taking way too much time figuring out what to eat and then I wouldn’t want to eat it.
My top tip for easy lunch meal prep – don’t overthink it! Make a list of your top 4 favorite lunches. For me, that means different salads, power bowls and healthy DIY “lunchables“. I will make one lunch for an entire week. This might sound boring but if you make a list and vary it from week to week it will help to keep things interesting! It will also save your food budget from buying a ton of different ingredients.
Why Lunch Meal Prep Can Simplify Your Life
When you are able to take the time to meal prep your lunches, it takes the guesswork out of it! When you have a convenient container to grab and go, you are able to stick to your meal plan and find something healthy to eat for lunch. No more resorting to the drive through or worse, skipping lunch!
Meal Prep Ideas for Lunch
If sandwiches and salads are boring you during lunchtime, I can definitely relate! I go through periods where I want different things and a salad just won’t do it for me!
Roasted veggies and protein with a healthy carb make an easy and healthy lunch! You can throw salmon in the oven along with some veggies and have a delicious and healthy lunch that isn’t salad!
My Favorite Meal Prep Tools
TakeAlongs Meal Prep Containers are my favorite tool to get my meal prep set. Their divided base tray can hold up to 3.7 cups of food which helps me to stick with portion control! They are lightweight and stackable which keeps my fridge organized! You don’t have to worry about your food falling out of the container if you’re on the go because of their Quik Clik Seal lids. I use the large pack sizes so I can prep for the whole week!
