If you’re as busy as we are at Chef’s Kitchen, then you probably plan out your days well in advance in order to power through your long list of duties each day. It’s always gratifying to check off each task on our to-do list, however, eating a healthy meal often falls off the priority list.
Between the time it takes to shop for groceries and to prepare nutritional meals for breakfast lunch and dinner, many people instead opt for unhealthy options like fast food due to convenience.
Fortunately, meal prepping – or making several meals at once so that you have meals readily available for the rest of the week – saves you time and allows you to eat well! Read on for more benefits.
Gain More Free Time
After working all day and coming home to familial responsibilities, making dinner, cleaning up and taking everything out again to make lunch for the following day can be arduous. Meal prepping helps you cut time in the kitchen and feel organized.
Learn Portion Control
Unlike restaurant or fast food meals, when you get pre-portioned meals, you know exactly how much you are consuming and have the ability to control your food intake. Ultimately, meal prepping helps you eat less and lose weight.
We often don’t realize how much we spend eating out or making last-minute decisions in the grocery store, but these expenses add up quicker than we think. Meal prepping can considerably reduce your monthly food expenses.
A week’s worth of fresh, organic produce and meat prepped in advance equates to a couple restaurant lunch breaks, a trip to your favorite restaurant or a few stops at your favorite burger joint.
Supplement Your Workout
While working out helps you tone, eating the right foods can help you lose weight. A custom meal prep plan with dietary restrictions – such as a low carb/high protein diet – can help to complement your hard work in the gym.
Reduce Stress Levels
Everyone knows how stressful it is to make a decision about a meal after a long day. You race home from work frantic and hungry, and still have trouble deciding what will satiate your appetite at the last minute. If you have a meal prep plan, you can take care of things in advance and mitigate your frustrations.
