Meal Prep and Planning
Is your busy workweek getting in the way of your clean eating goals? We’ve all been there – A hectic week at work means not putting in the time to plan and put together healthy, diet-friendly options at mealtime.
When trying to lose weight, get in shape, or simply stay in shape, one of the best ways to stick to your diet and healthy eating goals is by prepping several meals for the week ahead of time. This “meal prep” trend has become a widespread fad for the health and fitness minded. You may have seen meal prep images flooding your Instagram explore feature, or caught a few CrossFitters boasting about their meal prepping on your Facebook feed.
We want to challenge you to try two weeks of meal prepping and see what it can do for you! Not only will it help keep you on track for your calorie and nutrition goals, but fronting the 1 – 2 hours of prep time on Sunday night will take out extra planning time throughout the week when you get hungry so that you can focus on other responsibilities and interests.
In this Meal Prep 101 manual, Kayla Itsines, a quickly rising Instagram fitness guru with 4.6 million followers, has some great tips, such as using different spices and dressings in each container so that you don’t end up getting sick of eating the same thing several days in a row.
