5) Have all your supplies on hand and ready to go
I found it took a lot of time and money to shop for my ingredients. I ended up going out once a week, often stocking up on things I didn’t need just because they were on sale. Now I keep all my staples in one place and keep track of what’s available, so there’s less planning involved when I head into meal prep mode.
6) Choose recipes ahead of time
This is probably one of the most crucial elements of meal prep. If you’re preparing a few different meals, plan out your recipes ahead of time so that you can cook everything quickly and efficiently once your ingredients are ready. Some healthy meal prep services, like Blue Apron and HelloFresh, make it easier than ever to select recipes and add them to your shipment each week.
