Finding balance in a busy schedule can be simplified with three key steps. Planning meals, preparing food and packing it for future use. Depending on your lifestyle and schedule will determine how you prep.

Some like to have each meal prepped and planned out while others prefer batches of food prep. Decide which method is best for you.

Take time once or twice a week to prepare the food you will need throughout the week.

What is the best to stay on track with starting a dreaded diet?

Finding balance in a busy schedule can be simplified with three key steps. Planning meals, preparing food and packing it for future use. Depending on your lifestyle and schedule will determine how you prep.

For the person on the go:
Do you consume the majority of your meals out of the house? Packing your meals ahead of time will keep you on track. Sit down once a week a look and your schedule. Determine how many meals you will need in and out of the house.

For the stay at home people: 
Having large batches of food prep will allow you to eat healthy without having to constantly cook. Make eating healthy accessible by having your meals prepped.

Prep Ideas:

  • Grill proteins
  • Hard boil eggs
  • Make smoothie packs and freeze them
  • Precut fruit and veggies 
  • prepare large batches of rice and quinoa
  • Prepare Turkey Meatballs
  • Assemble Crockpot meals

 

Having food prepped ahead of time takes the guess work out of healthy eating. If you have 90% of your meals planned or prepped staying on track is simple.
