Have you ever been frustrated with your meals not tasting good? Feel like your in a rush to come up with a quick and easy go to healthy meal? Are you having trouble putting something together because your just not sure what to mix with what?
Here’s a list of 10 ways not to mess up your meal prep:
- Grocery shop on Sunday afternoons after football.
- Always buy for the week, or at least 3 days in advanced (i.e meats)
- Always have fresh or organic herbs in containers that go with most meats. For example, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, Celtic salt, pepper.
- Always have organic coconut oil and olive oil in the house.
- Always stock up on organic lemons
- Buy meats in bulks and freeze if needed
- Always keep eggs in the fridge as they are extremely easy to cook any time of the day when on the go.
- Invest in glass containers to put left overs in.
- Keep the fridge full of clean water in glass bottles to avoid chemicals from plastic bottles
- My go to snacks seem to be cucumbers, apples and bananas, especially when I am having sweet cravings.
As you can see these simple tips will be a game changer for what you keep in your household in order to maximize your health and fitness results. A bonus tip to help with your meal prep is to actually make sure you are training consistently. Being organized with your workouts help you stay on schedule with your eating habits. You will less likely cheat and destroy all your hard earned worked with bad for you foods when you are physically putting in the work.
