Meal Prep Made Easy!
Tips for easy Meal Prepping
They key to eating healthy is simply being prepared!! Taking an hour of your day on Sunday to prepare for the week will save you endless calories as well as time during your busy week!
Here are some things I do to make meal prep easy, affordable and interesting!
1. Mix it up-
Instead of marinating all of your protein for the week in one seasoning, use a cookie sheet and divide it into 3 different "taste" that you can cook them all at once.
2. Soggy Salads- See ya BYE!
Use a glass jar and place your dressing on the bottom followed by hearty veggies, finishing with lettuce on top. Place a paper towel over food, close the jar and enjoy when ready. Will save up to 3 days.
3. Spiral your Veggies-
Don't hassle with cleaning and cutting your veggies every night. Spiral them or cut them at the beginning of the week, place them in an air tight container with a paper towel over them. Secure with lid and flip over so excess moisture soaks into paper towel. Will save 5-6 days.
4. Use baking cups to your advantage-
Bake mini fritters in egg cups so you can just pop one in the microwave for breakfast OR blend a large batch of your favorite smoothie and place in baking cups. Freeze and remove and store in the freezer. Pop a single serving in the blender when ready to eat. All of your ingredients are together with no mess to clean up!
5. Skewer your meat or veggies-
Measure out a portion of meat, fruits or veggies and put them on a skewer and store! This makes it easy to grab when you are in a rush and you don't have to worry about portions- it's already done for you!
