Christmas is over and the new year is here, and you’ve decided that after this past period of overindulging, you’re going to get back on track.
The majority of us are walking into January with fitness goals, gym memberships and healthy recipe books. But the motivation may soon fade, so how can you ensure you stick to your plan?
Preparation, that’s how. More specifically, meal preparation.
That’s how you can make sure that no matter how busy you are in life, you’re always on track.
Meal preparation, or meal prep, makes your life more convenient. After a long day at work, you don’t always want to get home and have to start cooking for half an hour or more. If you’ve done your meal prep, there’s no cooking needed, you can simply tuck into your healthy meal straight away.
Meal prep not only saves you time, it will save you money. Most of us don’t realise the amount of money we spend on unhealthy takeaways and meal deals. You might not think it’s a lot at the time but it all adds up. Not to mention the amount of fat, carbohydrates and calories that are packed into these types of meals. Meal prep helps you avoid all of this.
How you meal prep is entirely your choice. You can prepare all of your three daily meals, or just your lunch and evening meal.
Some choose to prepare for the whole week, while others simply prepare for a few days at a time. Just choose what works best for you.
