We have great news for you! You don’t have to be an expert chef or spend six hours in the kitchen prepping meals for the week to set yourself up for success!
Here are three tips to get you started:
If you don’t make time, it won’t happen! Take out your schedule (phone, or old school paper like me!), and carve out 1-2 hours for planning and shopping! This has to happen weekly!
#2 Find Your Recipes
The absolute best resource for healthy recipes with loads of variety? Pinterest..
You can even check out my personal Pinterest board for some ideas!
#3 Bulk Prep or Make a plan!
Ideally, you would spend a little time bulk prepping a few items for the week. These are my favourite things to have on hand for lunches throughout the week:
- BBQ Chicken
- Rice (rice cooker or insta pot!)
- Chopped veggies
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- And at minimum, just wash some fresh fruit!
If you don’t have time right after shopping to prep, that is OKAY! Just make a simple plan for what you will make for meals that week so you can ensure you have what you need on hand (and out of the freezer!).
Remember, being a good prepper takes time and practice, and it’s not going to be perfect right off the hop! Here are a few great things to have on hand when prepping doesn’t happen:
Beef jerky, plain greek yogurt (add fruit to it!), Rx Bars, nuts and seeds, flavoured canned tuna, and of course simple things like baby carrots or apples and bananas that take no time to prep are always great to have on hand!
