Prepping food ahead of time and keeping it in the fridge or freezer so you can take it with you on-the-go makes healthy eating incredibly easy, but it’s not always clear where to start. With this guide to healthy meal prep, you’ll learn about 10 different ways to prepare food in advance, so you can choose which one(s) work best for your lifestyle. Plus, you’ll find out how to stock your fridge and freezer properly, so everything will stay fresh and ready to go once you need it!
1) Consider your schedule
You may not have time for a full-on meal prep every single day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the action. Try these tips and tricks for making it work for your schedule. First of all, if you only want to meal prep on weekends or maybe once or twice a week, then that is an option!
2) Let your schedule dictate your meals
If you’re not sure where to start with healthy meal prep, consider starting from what your schedule allows. For example, if you know that Monday is your busiest day at work and you want an easy-to-prepare lunch, plan on making it a meal that can be easily packed and taken along. Try something like a salad or sandwich so it doesn’t get soggy sitting in its container all morning.
