Reasons Why You Should Meal prep
Meal Prepping is Fun
I know it can sound intimidating and overwhelming at first, but meal prepping is fun, especially if you get the whole family involved, it becomes less of a chore. Plus, you have a chance to really explore different foods and recipes, which can lead you to loving new things!
It Helps Your Reach Your Goals
It's a fact, meal prepping can help you to reach your goals, whether that is weight loss, weight gain, eating out less often, cooking dinner for your family more, eating more nutritiously, and more. Being prepared adds a level of convenience that we often turn to processed, packaged foods for. Preparing your meals in advance can help you rock those goals!
You Get Everything Done At Once
Set aside one day, for a couple of hours, to prep everything. Cut up veggies, separate and pack up whole grain crackers, divvy your berries and bag them to store in the freezer, and bake chicken in bulk. When it comes to the week, you will just have to heat and serve - it's so easy!
Meal Prepping Saves You Money
This one, it really does, meal prepping saves you a lot and here's why - you spend it all in one trip. With meal prepping, you make your list, go to the store, and after that, you're set until next week. Average in one trip I spend $60-75, but when I Instacart throughout a week or visit Lidl multiple times for things I forgot, I wind up spending another $30 each trip for a total of $120 on the lower end. That should be enough for you to get started.
