Food prep is the key to your health and fat loss! It keeps you from overeating, starve-binging (when you’re so hungry you eat everything in sight!) and it’s pre-planned with your correct macronutrients to keep yourself on track towards your goals. Planning your week is absolutely crucial to your success and creation of a healthy lifestyle. Today I spent a little over an hour and a half prepping breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next three days all while binge watching the latest season of House of Cards. I made all my favorites plus one new thing: cauliflower “rice”. I prefer to get my carbohydrates from vegetables so this seemed like a fun experiment. Aside from chopping, all I really had to do was fry and bake. Keepin’ it simple and delicious.
There are a few things you need before you can start to food prep:
- Get a plan. What will you shop for? Choose things that are in season and easy to combine with the other foods on your list.
- Invest in good glass tupperware.
- Use the oven whenever possible! That way you can just walk away and let your food simmer to perfection.
