Quick Tips For Meal Prepping

We all know the glory that a good meal prepping session can bring us! Knowing you have healthy and delicious meals ready-to-go and accessible during a busy week is key! Here are some tips on how you can ensure you get meal prep time in:


Write down a list of 4-5 meals and/or snacks you want to to prep. Have the recipes ready to go. If you’re going to do a bulk meal prep I suggest that you don’t use a brand new recipe. If the recipe doesn’t turn out, or you simply don’t enjoy it, it could create wasted food, time and money. Use recipes you know, trust and enjoy!


Ensure you have all of the ingredients needed and/or create a grocery list of what you’ll need to pick up. Take your time with this! There is nothing worse than getting home from a big shop and realizing that you forget a key item.


Schedule your grocery shopping the day before or the morning of prep day so everything is fresh and ready to go.

SO IMPORTANT: carve out a block of time to allow for meal prep. Make this an enjoyable time! Put on your favourite movie, podcast or music and enjoy being in the kitchen. This totally qualifies as some legit ‘me time’.


The art of multitasking. I normally do my meal prepping on Wednesdays and/or Sundays (of course allowing for flexibility #entrepreneurlife). I would look forward to this time because I knew I would be knocking several things off my to-do list. While I meal prep I would normally have laundry going, call a girlfriend to catch-up, or listen to a great podcast ... (real talk I'm probably watching The Bachelor).


BONUS TIP: your Tupperware game should be strong! Have a set of Tupperware (I recommend glass) that you use solely for meal prep. This will allow you some consistency with sizing if you’re aiming you achieve specific portions.
