This week’s blog post is my take on meal prep and how it can help if done properly. I also look into ways of making good eating habits easier.
You may see gym goers posting pictures captioned “meal prep” with a pile of tuperware tubs full of food.
The main theory behind meal prep is to make sure you always have a healthy meal to hand so you don’t resort to eating junk food for convenience. This can be done by cooking the next day or weeks meals in advance, depending on what is practical for the individual.
For me the most important part of the healthy eating process is food shopping. If you just buy healthy ingredients you can only make healthy meals. If your fridge, freezer and cupboards are full of healthy food, your diet will be good.
I don’t believe it’s necessary to cook all your meals in advance unless you just have one small window of time each day or week.
To conclude, eating healthily is a mixture of organisation, discipline and knowledge.
