What is  Meal prep?


''Meal prep'' is short formeal prepping. It is the concept of making meals ahead of time for convenience and saves money and energy. It saves plenty of time and is popular among people with extremely packed schedules. It comes in handy when you are exhausted or overwhelmed. 


If you are wondering if meal prep is really for you, check out these five benefits,


  1. Encourages healthy and clean eating: Ahealthy meal prep lets you plan what you are going to eat ahead of time. Consequently, you end up making nutrient-dense food choices in the long run. The variety and the ability to customize provides a tasty and healthyfresh meal every day. Another factor is that with meal prep, there are no additives, preservatives, so it helps you eat clean. 

  1. No binge-eating: When you startmeal prepping, there is no way you can binge eat. The first reason is that you always have food ready in the refrigerator. Another reason is the portion size, with food already packaged into individual portion size, you will not overindulge. Besides, when you have snacks and meals that meet your taste and preferences, who would want to choose junk or binge eat. 

  1. Promotes healthy weight: If you are serious about losing weight or maintaining a healthy  weight,meal prep is for you. Oversized portions are a norm in restaurants, and added sugars and fats are ubiquitous in packaged foods. By replacing such foods with healthy meals you limit the excess calories and keep your weight under check. 

  1. Saves money: No extra stops to the store, no fast food purchases, no take-outs for weeks mean lots of savings. With meal planning done, you are less likely to pick that tub of ice cream on sale. 

  1. Less stress: When you start following a meal prep plan, there is consistency. There is no guesswork of what to buy or prepare for the day or the next day, which is a sure stress reducer.  Meal planning gives you the bliss of enjoying stress-free home-made meals.
