Top 4 Tips to Meal Prep Like a Pro
- Plan your Meals in Advance – this is best done before you go grocery shopping. If you are like me; where what’s cheap at the shop dictates what I eat that week – that is fine too. At least have some indication of what you feel like having so you don’t over do this whole meal prep thing.
- Check Your Pantry – see is there is anything you can create from your pantry first. You will be amazed how much money you save just by planning your meals using food from your pantry. Items like beans, canned tomatoes, soup in a can, rice, pasta or even instant noodles can transform a plain meal into a gourmet offerings.
- Shop local, Shop Seasonal, Shop Special – It can sometime be tempting to spend $7 on a 200g box of blackberries because your influencer had it in her breakfast and it looked lit. Shop what’s freshest and value for money in your local area. Blackberries may not be in season where you are. That’s fine because you can substitute it frozen blueberries which are way cheaper, yet are equally as nutritious.
- Prep for Good Days, Prep for Bad Days – At the start of the week, we all hoped that our days are going to be great, filled with healthy, low carb , superfoods. But lets face it, sometimes life happens. You have bad days. And on bad days, you may want to taste the comfort of an actual Spaghetti Bolognese, rather than zoodle bolognaise. If you don’t prep of days like these, you will end up skipping your planned meals and go with bigger, larger portions of comfort food. Having these comfort meals handy will avoid that.
