Simple Ways to Start Food Prepping (That I Actually Use)

Simple Ways to Start Food Prepping (That I Actually Use)

I do not spend my Sundays slaving away in the kitchen, roasting broccoli and pan-searing protein sources. I understand why meal prepping works for people, especially those with extreme fitness goals. But just because meal prep isn’t something I practice to a T, that doesn’t mean there aren’t small things I do throughout the week to help me make healthy choices and have food available when I need it.

This post is intended for many people I know- those who sit at work or school wishing they had packed food but simply “didn’t have the time”. The truth is that if you just spend a few extra minutes preparing simple options, it could save you your money and even your time from having to go out and buy something.

I put together this guide for anyone looking to eat wholesome with little fuss! Enjoy these fun and simple ways I actually incorporate into my life!

FOR FRUITS AND VEGGIES:

  • Pre-cut veggies such as carrots, celery or peppers

  • Wash and pick your grapes to have for the week

  • Cut up berries and store them in an airtight container

  • Pre-cut your own apple slices for baggies

  • Roast some sweet potato fries at the start of the week

  • Try baking kale for chips

FOR SALTY:

  • Hard boil eggs and keep them in the fridge

  • (For meat eaters) Portion out some low sodium, antibiotic free lunch meat from the deli counter and pair it with a cheese stick in a baggie

  • Take a serving from a can of beans or microwave rice for your meal and put the rest in a container for easy access throughout the week

  • Pre-portion out crackers into sandwich baggies for on the go

  • Use disposable condiment cups and prepare servings of hummus, peanut butter, or dressing

  • Try roasted chickpeas for snacking

FOR SWEET:

  • Prepare frozen smoothie bags to grab as needed

  • Always keep greek yogurt cups around

  • Make energy balls and store them in the freezer or fridge

  • Make your own trail mix and portion into sandwich baggies

  • Try a Pinterest recipe for protein bars in bulk

  • Keep some dark chocolate around when that sweet tooth kicks in

 

Challenge yourself! Find a few ways to weave these strategies into your week. Your body will thank you.



All the love,
