A lot of people wonder about whether they should meal prep and whether it will help them on their transformation journey.
Of course it does! So keep reading on for more benefits to preparing meals or snacks ahead of time..
Keep yourself in check.
If you have prepped your meals then you are less likely to grab something unhealthy and off plan when you are on the go. This is the best way to keep yourself accountable. Even something as simple as an apple and bag of nuts in your handbag. This will get you closer to your goals and avoids that quick on the go muffin.
You can stick to your calorie and macro goals
If everything is weighed out according to your personal plan. This is your control, and your means of making sure your eating plan works.
It is a serious time and money saver.
Everything prepped in advance means no waste and no spoilage.
Prepping can be easy,
I've said before, it doesn’t even have to be a full meal. Maybe you want to weigh out your muesli serving for breakfast and have your portion controlled 150g yogurt tub. Freezing some fruit and veg portions for a smoothie that you make quickly the next morning. Or making a larger dinner that you can portion out for lunch the next day. Don’t overthink it.
Take the stress out of your eating plan.
If you have meals or snacks set out for you they ready to grab. Then you don't have to stress about the possibility of going off plan!
Keep the basics at hand.
This means protein options like powders and meat portions. Keep your veg all chopped up ready to cook. Freeze your smoothie options. Have portioned out nuts/seeds, muesli, yoghurt tubs and ready-made protein balls.
