Pick a day to meal prep everything for the week


Having a designated grocery and meal prep day allows you to complete your weekly meal prep so you Aren’t trying to juggle it throughout the week. If you can’t do it in one day try getting your groceries the day before then use your free day to prep.

Plan your meals

In order to successfully meal prep, plan your meals in advance. Knowing what you will eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks allows you to reduce food waste and reduces the stress of trying to figure out what you’ll eat later. 

Cook meals in big batches 

Making meals in large batches that are interchangeable provides variety and reduces prep time like rice, vegetables, and certain proteins. This allows you to create various meals and not spend hours cooking with your already tight schedule.

Freeze leftovers

When you have leftovers it’s best to freeze them to have for a later date than waste. Though most foods only last up to five days in the refrigerator they can last months in the freezer. 

Don’t forget snacks!

One of the best things about meal prepping is the snacks but they are often forgotten. Including yogurts, granola, and healthy chips on your list to snack throughout your week is important so don’t forget them!
