Make Mealtimes Healthy And Easy

Life can be pretty crazy and get in the way of your desire to live a healthy lifestyle. When you are busy at work or school all day, it may seem easier to grab a quick lunch at the closet fast food restaurant or convenience store. Not only does this hurt your wallet, but it can also hurt your body. Meal prep can solve both of these problems and is often much more delicious! Here are 3 ways to add meal prep into your routine: 

  1. Make a meal plan. Start out by picking recipes that you can make in bulk and sound good to you. To save money, choose meals that you have ingredients for all ready.
  2. Start small. Just because you want to start meal prepping, does not mean you immediately need to prepare all 3 meals ahead of time. Start by just prepping breakfast, as it is often the simplest meal to make, to grab and go in the morning. 
  3. Create a schedule. By choosing the same time each week to cook for the week, whether it be breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you are more likely to make it an established routine. For example, block out 2-3 hours on Sunday afternoons, break out your Tupperware, and turn on the music!

Contrary to popular belief, meal prep does not have to be complicated or stressful. It will ultimately save you time, money, and better your health.
