Meal prep like a BOSS!!
Now i'm not going to go all goo-roo expert on you and tell you that it's or the highway because i'd be lying.
I have a few ways that work for me and if I share them with you and they help you
out, then i've done a good deed for the day.
When it comes to hitting a health and fitness goal, nutrition plays a MASSIVE part.
Yes I wrote MASSIVE in big bold letters, that's just how important your food is.
So to get it right you need to make sure you are consistently good with your nutrition.
One way to ensure that consistency is to prepare some meals ahead of time.
Anyhoo here are the three easiest ways to do that.
Way #1 - Batch Cook Meals
Batch cooking meals for the week is a real time saver and means you won't have to slave
in the kitchen straight after you have just finished a long day at work.
You can batch cook things like bolognaise, chilli or curries and then portion them out into
tubs which you can freeze.
This means you then have plenty of meals already set to eat, and just need reheating.
Secondly, you could utilize a slow cooker (great for stews, casseroles etc) which you can cook on low over night and then have ready in the morning, or leave it on while you are at work and it's ready when you come home.
Way #2 - No-Cook Meal Prep - Yoghurt Pots
Another way to make meal prep easy is to find ingredients you don't have to cook.
Greek yoghurt (full fat, unsweetened) is really good for this, as you just have to add your own topping to it such as whey protein, berries, nuts and seeds, nut butter, cinnamon, oats.
You can then store in the fridge and grab and go as you leave the house.
Way #3 - Snack-Attack-Hacks
I'm not sure where the whole snacking idea came from, probably from the idiots who said
you have to eat a gazillion meals a day to keep your metabolism humming.
Unfortunately most snacks now are just pure crap.
So if you MUST snack or you get peckish try and keep it healthy, such as:
- Boiled eggs
- Nuts (small handful)
- Nut Butter and sliced apple (again keep the nut butter portion small)
- Carrot and pepper sticks
- Berries or cherries
There you have it 3 ways to be a little bit more organised when it comes to your grub.
