As you all know by now, I am a big supporter of prepping your meals to save you time during your busiest days. You may have noticed this busy girl trick has found itself in the spotlight as the latest “trend” the media is promoting. But how do we really make the most out of our prep time? How do we stay efficient, healthy, and gain more than just a nice picture for Instagram? Let’s go beyond the Meal Prep Craze and look at ways to make this time saving trick a life saver for a healthy eater on the go. Read further to learn my meal prep hacks: 5 tips you need to know!
1. Don’t get overwhelmed!
If you are new to meal prepping (or even if you are a seasoned veteran), it can sometimes seem like a daunting task to plan out and prepare at once for all three meals a day for a whole week. Last week, I was featured in Daily Mail UK as one of the “meal queens” of Instagram alongside numerous photos of prepped and planned meals.
I love the publicity the healthy eating trick is getting, but I never want anyone to feel overwhelmed by those highly organized preps! Don’t be afraid to start small. One or two recipes for just 2-3 days can make a huge difference in saving you time for the week. Sticking to recipes you have made before can also cut down on your prep time significantly. That way you are a pro to the prep and don’t have to worry about any unforeseen surprises.
