Meal prepping is one of those things you keep saying you should do, but then you never seem to actually make it happen, right?

Well, read on and check how can you make meal prepping easy and workable..

Try these 4 Simple Steps:

  1. Pick a day that works for you. Sunday Funday might take on a whole new meaning. The most important thing is figuring out when you can devote a couple of hours to meal prep. For some, Sunday is key. For others, Monday nights are the only viable option. Once you get the hang of it, 2 hours start to finish (including cleanup!) is about all you’ll need to set aside. Some of you may even be speedier.

 2.  Get your tools ready. Choose containers that are BPA-free and come in various sizes, and organize your fridge before you get prepping so you’ll have room for a week’s worth of grub. Yes, that includes ditching lasts weeks leftovers that are beginning to grow mold. And while you’re shopping for those pretty new glass containers, add a food processor to your kitchen arsenal. Chopping is so much easier and faster when you have a little machine to help you do it. Trust me, it’s worth investing in an electric sous chef when you don’t have a real one.

Tip: Use Ice-Trays to store cubes of Ginger, Garlic paste.

3.Create your meal plan and get shopping.  Meal prep is all about cooking in bulk and eating leftovers. I recommend preparing up to 5 days worth of food at a time; 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 dinners and 5 snacks. Your meals should consist of a protein, healthy starch, healthy fat and tons of veggies. Having a manageable meal plan and grocery list keeps you focused and on task at the grocery store and prevents you from overloading your grocery cart with junk.

4.Get comfy in your kitchen and get to work. You’ve laid the groundwork, now it’s time to get cooking.
Always remember, food is fuel for your body. So, while meal prepping, feel the food you wish to eat, so that you can make the connection and when you eat it, your body feels happy and the taste buds activate themselves during the process.

Some meal prepping rules you’ll want to follow:

  • Stay clear from pre made salads to avoid soggy lettuce or add in lettuce just before eating so it’s fresh.
  • If you don’t have access to a microwave at work, stick to something like a Mediterranean quinoa salad with diced chicken, sun dried tomato, kalamata olive, marinated artichoke, cucumber and lemon.
  • Be sure to let everything cool in the containers before adding lids and stacking in the fridge. Otherwise, you’ll get soggy food and you’ll raise the temperature of your fridge.

Now that you meal prepping is ready, enjoy the process and feel the bliss of spare time in your hands…

Happy Eating!!!!
