5 Steps To Simplify Your Meal Prep
We've all heard the saying, "Fail to plan, plan to fail." When it comes to your nutrition-this couldn't be more true.
Meal prep is an essential component of good nutrition-without it, we're likely to make less-than-ideal choices, grab what's easy or skip meals/snacks all together.
So, how can you incorporate meal prep into your routine, without spending an entire day in the kitchen? I'm going to give you a few helpful ways to simplify, and make your meal prep more efficient.
Identify your staples. Pick one breakfast that you don't mind repeating for a few days, and then two protein options you can use for lunch and dinner. Examples: overnight oats, pulled chicken, and meatloaf muffins. **Head to www.weareresolutefit.com/recipes for lots of options!**
Identify your sides: pick your veggies and a starch. Keep it simple here! Use the bagged salad mixes, frozen veggies or even sliced raw veggies. As for a starch; sweet potatoes/rice/quinoa are all easy to batch prepare.
Make your list for the grocery store & double check your pantry. Nothing worse than missing an item you need!
Schedule 60-90 minutes of time, following your grocery shop, to meal prep. That's all you need! Consider recipes that you can make simultaneously, and use tools like your Instant Pot or Crock Pot!
Portion lunches or dinners into 3-compartment containers so that you can grab & go during the week! This extra step-which takes all of 5-10 minutes-takes one more hurdle out of the equation on a busy day.
