5 Things to Do While You Heat Your Meal Prep

Aside from the manyhealth benefits of meal prep delivery fromMy Healthy Penguin, one of the best things about our convenient meals is how easy they are to prepare. All of ourmeals are delivered in microwave-safe containers, pre-portioned, and ready to heat and serve. Meal preps are so easy to prepare that you can do something else while your dinner is being made! Here are 5 things you could do in the time it takes to heat up your healthy meal prep delivery:

1. Take the Dog Out

If you have a canine companion, the time you spend waiting for your healthy meal to heat in the microwave can easily be spent giving your favorite four-legged friend a quick jaunt around the block. Don’t have a dog? Bring yourself for a little early evening walk! Enjoying just 10 minutes of fresh air can boost your mood, increase energy, and help with circulatory health after a long day of sitting at the office. When you get back, your meal will be ready to go and rested, so it’s the perfect temperature to eat. 

2. Do Your Skincare

Unless you are doing one of those 40-minute, 14-product skincare routines, the time it takes to heat your meal prep will be plenty to do a simple skincare routine to refresh yourself after the day. Three steps is all it takes to healthy skin, though feel free to add more if you feel inspired!

  1. Cleanse: Use a gentle soap or cleanser to remove any makeup, sweat, grime, or pollution from your skin, rinse with warm water
  2. Gently dry the skin with a soft towel
  3. Apply a moisturizer in upward motions and massage lightly into the skin with fingertips

3. Read the News

If you are one of those people that likes to avoid the news, we get it! However, it is good to stay informed on the latest in the world. Once you pop your fresh meal into the microwave, grab your phone or computer and check your favorite news source or news app for a couple of minutes. This will be enough time to see the important news, but not enough to get bogged down. 

4. Put on Pajamas

One of the most luxurious feelings in the world is eating dinner in your pajamas. With the convenience of meal prep delivery from My Healthy Penguin, you will have plenty of time to get into your PJs and enjoy a night of relaxation. Slip into your favorite pair of cozy pajamas once you have put your meal prep in to warm, then plop down to enjoy your favorite Netflix show and a delicious, healthy meal. 

5. Order More Meal Prep Delivery

Choose meals in sets of five, and add on optionalNourish Bowls starting at just $11! Ordering fresh meals is so easy, you’ll be done before your dinner is warm.
