Learning How to Meal Prep

Pick Your Favorite Meals

You’ll be eating more of the same recipes than you’re used to, be sure to choose your favorites. Make one portion of each recipe below so you are aware of what you’ll be chowing down on for the week.

Start Small

If you’re brand new to prepping meals for the week, try cooking a few easy recipes for one meal out of the day. For example, since you are looking at lunch recipes, replace your current lunch routine with meal prepping.

Get Durable Containers

My favorite meal prep containers are microwavable, dishwasher safe and freezer safe. If you’re trying to save yourself time and money, the last thing you’ll want to do is wash a bunch of dishes by hand, pour your meal onto a frying pan or even damage your containers.

If you are worried about plastic health concerns, here are some gorgeous glass meal prep containers.

Count Your Calories

To ensure you aren’t making too many meals be sure to figure out how much you should be eating. Try this calorie counting calculator to figure out your personal needs.

Track Your Goals With a Bullet Journal

Creating a weekly meal planning bullet journal can help you progress towards your goals. Remember, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. This is a lesson I learned the hard way in my journey to weight loss.
