Meal prep is the perfect solution! Take a little bit of time to prep some meals ahead of time and then when it’s time to eat, you have a healthy plan in place.

What is meal prepping anyway?
Meal prep just means that you are prepping your meals once or twice a week in a large batch. It’s really convenient because you only cook once but have enough meals to last you for 4-5 days.
I love having healthy meals ready for me in the fridge- I just pull it out of the fridge and heat it up. It’s perfect for days when I am at home or even at work.
Meal prepping really does make eating healthy so easy!
I usually take some time on Sunday nights to meal prep for the upcoming week.
Meal prepping also saves you money because you are not eating out and it’s cheaper to buy items in bulk like you need for meal prepping.
Why meal prep?
Meal prep can help with:
- portion control
- wondering what to eat for lunch or dinner
- healthy meals that are ready when you are
- avoiding the drive-thru at a fast food place
- and all of these things lead to weight loss!
What are the best meal prep containers?
You can also purchase glass meal prep containers, which are really nice too. Whatever you prefer will work perfectly.
How long do meal prep bowls last in the fridge?
I have found that for myself, I prefer to eat my meal prep bowls within 3-4 days. When they get much older than that, they start to lose their fresh taste.
Meal prep bowls that are made with seafood will only last 2-3 days.
If you are making salads as meal prep, you will want to make sure that you don’t mix the dressing in until right before you eat (otherwise the salad will be soggy).
