I have a super time-saving tip for you today – a tip that will make your life easier, save you money, AND help you stay on track with your nutrition.
Most of us fall into two camps when it comes to meal prep. We either overthink it, or we don’t think about it all. Overthinking is an easy trap to fall into… there’s just SO much “stuff” on the internet, in magazines, and on social media with conflicting information. It’s nearly impossible to filter out all of the noise and to make an actual decision. So you think about it, you think some more, and then before you know it, it’s time to eat and you still don’t have a plan.
What if you took a few minutes to map out your meals and snacks for the next several days, and when you’re making dinner, you simply made 2-3x the amount you usually do? You can double up by making extra turkey burgers, chili, stir fry, or … well, almost anything!
Taking this approach means you don’t have to set aside several hours of valuable weekend time to cook for the upcoming week. Instead, you spend your normal amount of time cooking … plus 5 to 10 minutes each week planning your meals.
