When trying to eat clean, food prepping is one of my best tips to do so. When your food is already ready to go, its hard to say no. Hence, why we jump quickly at the thought of fast food. I set out one day per week to do my prepping which is usually Sunday. Why one day? Well, in order to cook several meals, it takes some time.
Meal prepping also comes in handy when I am busy chasing around my now crawling 8 month old! It just makes life so much easier!
The best prepped meal, to me, has always been the ever boring chicken breasts, broccoli, and brown rice. Why? It works! However, thanks to some fancy seasonings out there, I am not so bored with the meals anymore.
It used to take me about 3 hours to prep even this simple meal. However, I decided to start skipping steps and cook them together and now it takes me maybe 90 minutes or so.
Here is what I did to cut my time in half because, let's face it, nobody wants to spend an entire Sunday cooking:
Here are some things to do before you start meal prepping:
Plan. My meal prep days are usually Sundays because of the amount of down time I have to complete it. Set aside at least 2 hours-or more, especially if you are a slow cooker or are new to cooking in large batches. Plan out your meals-a protein, a starch, and a veggie-however you want to do it!
Make a list. Write down everything you will need to meal prep for the week. Choose clean, healthy, and nutritious foods.
Go shopping. Once you have your list made, you can go to the store and get what you need. Stick to the plan, stick to your list. Do not give in to the Cheetos when they scream at you. Better yet, don't even go down those tempting aisles! Stay far, fary away.
Prep & cook. Once home, you can begin right away or on your designated meal prepping day. Prep and cook your meals and place them in their containers or freeze them, if you wish.Always date your meals.
