Meal prep is no joke when it comes to taking good care of your health.
Making time to get balanced meals ready for the week helps cut costs and takes thinking about healthy eating out of the equation for a fit and active week.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
During the week, we can lose sight of how busy life gets. Many times, we don’t prepare balanced nutritious meals, so when the coworkers bring burgers and fries in for lunch, we opt for the quicker and less healthy choices for convenience sake.
Meal prepping is all about setting aside some time to ourselves to get back to the basics to make sure we are set up for the week and don’t opt for the unhealthy temptations.
Meal prepping is not just for body builders and brings simple, fresh ingredients for anyone to the table.
Whenever possible, use organic, local produce and high quality, humanely sourced protein. Be sure meals are well balanced with protein (animal, plant, or both), lots of colorful vegetables, plenty of healthy fats, and hearty whole grains.
Part of the process is figuring out what meals to make and how to do it. So, if you are completely in the dark on these key steps, reach out to me and I can coach you through it, in a way that will work just for you!
