This week I’m doing a full out meal prep for all my meals. See the strategies I’m using to make meal prep quick & easy and what is on this week’ menu.
Full Meal Prep Tips
I am not usually a meal prepper. My meal prep style is more wash some fruit, chop up some veggies. Maybe make double of a snack.
The only time I really full out meal prep is when we carb cycle before a trip. And the reason I do it is so I’ll actually eat the food I’m supposed to.
But, this week in my meal prep group we’re doing a full meal prep- Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Snacks. To tell you the truth I wasn’t really looking forward to it. The last thing I want to do is spend all day in the kitchen on Sunday.
So I tried to be a bit more strategic in my meal planning so meal prepping would be quicker and easier. Here are two things I’m doing to save time:
- I’ve chosen two morning snacks and two afternoon snacks for the week to alternate.
- I’m using the same protein for more than one meal. Rotisserie chicken will be used for a salad and wrap. Ground meat will be used for a burrito bowl and pasta meal.
While meal prep can seem like a hassle, you’ll be thankful for the time it saves you during the week and how it helps you stay on track. It really is worth it. You just need to find your style and what works best for you.
