These days, many busy moms are turning to meal prep to help cut costs, save time and be healthy. In the below infographic we share some of our favourite apps to help you get started on your meal prep journey…
Meal Preparation for Beginners
Meal preparation involves preparing meals in bulk for the week ahead. A loose discipline, there are many different ways people approach meal prep. For some, it involves cooking full meals to store in the freezer for later consumption. Whereas for others, it involves simply preparing ingredients (e.g. cutting vegetables, marinating meat) for the week ahead. You can meal prep any food that keeps well and still tastes good after a few days in the refrigerator.
What are the Advantages of Meal Preparation?
Being more efficient and strategic in your approach to food has been shown to result in a wide range of benefits. Firstly, by cutting down on last-minute purchases you save money. Careful portion control also means that you reduce food waste and help save the planet. What’s more, meal prep’s focus on portion size and nutrients can help you become healthier and lose weight. One common misconception is that meal prep is a laborious and time-consuming task. However, many find that investing a little time at the start of the week results in massive time savings later on.
