"Why Meal Prep?

Ever look at your calendar and realize that the week ahead is going to be ridiculously busy? When that happens, I know what to do: solve the dilemma of “what to eat” and free up a nice chunk of time, by prepping my meals in advance. I cannot tell you just how great it feels to open my fridge and take out lunch or dinner, all ready to go. It might seem like a lot of work to do the prepping ahead but I promise you that the rewards of meal prep are better than that hour or two of work!

Here are some of the benefits of prepping your meals in advance:

1. Time-saving: Prepping your meals in advance can save you a lot of time during the week. Instead of having to figure out what you should eat and then have to cook every day, you can prepare a bunch of meals at once and have them ready to go.

2. Healthier eating habits: Preparing your meals in advance can help you make healthier choices. When you have meals ready to go, you are less likely to grab fast food or eat unhealthy snacks.

3. Portion control: When you prep your meals in advance, you can control the portion sizes and ensure you're not overeating.

4. Cost-effective: Prepping your meals in advance can be cost-effective, since you can buy ingredients in bulk and prepare meals for the entire week. Plus, every time you’re in the store, if you are anything like me, you “impulse buy” whatever looks good!

5. Reduces stress: Knowing that you have meals ready to go can reduce stress and make your week less hectic. (Remember that busy week you have coming up??)

With all of these benefits, we should definitely consider making meal prep a priority. I realize that you are probably thinking “I have no idea how to meal prep!” Don’t worry because in our next blog, we will tell you how to do just that.
