- “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail” a clichéd term but one that is so prevalent with nutrition and will be a deciding factor on whether you get results or not.
- There are many ways to meal prep which doesn’t mean you need to make your meals for the week in advance (although you can if you want).
- Simply knowing what you are going to be eating the day before will allow you to prepare what you need to buy or make for the day ahead.
- Having your meal plan in place, this will stop you from going off track or getting caught out. Even if you have meetings or are in a different environment to usual, you can prepare accordingly.
- Set some time aside either on a weekly or daily basis to write down what you are going to be eating for the next day or days to come.
- Not only will it allow you to stay on track but will also save you time cooking each meal individually and wondering what you need to buy.
- You’ll also save money by not grabbing overpriced snacks and sandwiches from shops or wasting food from the supermarket which you have bought with no idea what you are going to cook with it.
- Make a list of meals you enjoy that are easy to cook in bulk such as stews, chillis and soups and make them regularly. Store them in the freezer so you always have something on hand that you can reheat in a microwave at short notice or take with you on the road in tupperware.
