One of the most effective ways to successfully adopt a healthy lifestyle is to learn how to MEAL PREP. Unfortunately, this is not always an easy undertaking, and is something I've struggled with. I'm still not perfect at it, but I have made great progress, so I thought I'd share my tips for making meal prepping a little easier.
Get organized: This part is hard, but you just have to decide to do it. You must make a plan for what you're going to eat. I have 2 lists.
These steps are the basics that set me up for a week of healthy meals and snacks that are "prepped" when I'm ready to cook. Having the tedious steps (planning, cleaning and cutting) done makes it a lot easier to cook at home instead of resorting to fast food...because we all know that a greasy burger and fries after a long day of work and soccer practice is far more tempting than going home to the slimy, fatty bag of chicken that's waiting patiently in your fridge. (Just keepin' it real)! Set yourself up to succeed by planning and prepping ahead of time!
