Working full time, going to the gym and having a social life is a crazy juggling act. And then trying to eat healthy on top of all that is a struggle. My brain thinks I’m dying if I don’t eat every few hours and I’ll grab whatever is readily available. Thusly, being proactive about my meal prep is my only option. I spend a few hours on my day off cooking and then I don’t have to worry about it the rest of the week. It’s a massive weight off my shoulders. Consequently, I am more productive and full of energy if I’m eating my healthy meals. It’s a positive snowball effect.
Don’t get me wrong meal prep can be a chore but once you bite the bullet and get in a groove it becomes very easy! I’ve learned some shorts cuts over the years that I can’t wait to share with you.
I always suggest starting with just a 2-3 meal prep. Figure out what your dietary needs are and try and cook for just a few days at first. When you get that down you can add more days. You want to see how much you’re actually eating and don’t want food to go to waste.
