Frequently Asked Questions About Meal Prepping

How healthy is meal prepping?

Meal prepping is actually one of the best ways to stick to a healthy diet You have access to the healthy, fresh ingredients you need without all the other foods that tempt you down every aisle at the grocery store. You control the amount of food you eat and plan everything down to the detail, including your snacks. And let’s not forget about stress. When you have everything ready to go for each meal, your mealtimes become easier and less stressful, which is always healthier.

Is meal prep good for 5 days?

It is when planned properly. Your meal prep considers how perishable food items are to ensure the food stays fresh and then bases the schedule on eating the most perishable food items earlier in the week. If you go by this plan, you’ll enjoy fresh meals.

Is it cheaper to meal prep?

If planned out properly, meal prepping can save you money. The trick is only to buy what you need and, as mentioned above, avoid buying perishable foods too far in advance. This reduces food waste. Also, if you look at the ingredients and how they can be used for multiple meals, you’ll spread their use further while also making preparing meals easier.

Should I freeze my meal prep?

You can and should if the prep is further out than three days. Just keep in mind that not all foods freeze well, such as fresh fruits and vegetables with higher water content.

What foods are good for meal prep?

Some popular healthy foods good for meal prep include:
  • Boiled eggs for salads, sandwiches and breakfast
  • Dips and spreads
  • Grains like rice and quinoa
  • Sliced veggies
  • Pre-roasted veggies
  • Cooked ground meat
  • Cooked chicken
  • Broth
  • Frozen herbs
Having these types of foods prepped and ready to go makes it a breeze to cook and put together lunches and snacks.

How do I start meal prepping?

A few tips to get you started on meal prep include:
  • Start simply by packing leftovers and planning to use them whether it is for lunch or incorporated into another meal, such as creating a soup.
  • Be sure foods are never reheated more than once.
  • Start one day at a time to get the hang of it.
  • Plan ahead, so you have all the ingredients on hand.
  • Consider the meals you want to prep for, so you include all the elements such as basic meals with a protein, grain and a vegetable or low carb meals with protein and two vegetables.
  • Have plenty of bags and small food containers to store the prepped food.

Take a Break from the Rise and Grind: Get Quick and Delicious Recipes Made in Under 20 Minutes

If you’ve fallen into a rut where you’re constantly skipping meals, ordering take-out or microwaving frozen meals, you might not realize how much these supposed “time-saving” meals cost you.

While it may save you time up front, these habits slow you down in the long run. By relying on microwaved or fast food (or just not eating), you’re not getting the nutrition and energy you need to keep up with all the demands of your day.
Instead, enjoy healthy, freshly made meals daily by setting aside just a few minutes to order customizable homemade meals.

Cooking doesn’t have to be difficult as long as you have simple recipes and the ingredients on hand. You’ll feel better and have the energy to tackle your to-do list with renewed vigour when you enjoy healthy home-cooked meals.
