Which can be overwhelming and placed in the 'to hard basket' after a busy day at work. We’re here to help you keep striving towards your goals with our tips on how to make heading back to work and meal prepping easy.
Plan ahead & prep your meals.
Planning and prepping your meals for the week ahead means you know what’s on the menu for lunch and dinner each night. We recommend choosing your recipes or ideas before your weekly trip to the shops or ordering online. This means you know exactly what you came for, and then once you have all your ingredients ready to go, it will make your life easier on the nights you get be bothered.
Save time on lunch prep by cooking extra at dinner time so, you have leftovers. This is often more cost effect and ofcourse saves YOU time.
Make it delicious.
If you’re trying to be healthy, then there’s something to be said for getting excited about what you’re eating. Think about it… in the lead up to lunch, if you enjoy eating healthy food because it tastes great, then you’re more likely to stick with it and continue to eat healthily, rather than ditching the meal you have & buying something instead. and YES healthy food can taste great.
Mix it up.
Variety can be a challenge when it comes to traditional meal prepping. This comes in two forms – taste and nutrition. We know how tedious looking for recipes and inspritation can be.
We're here to help! Ready meals are a great option for keeping things interesting because you can have something new each day without having to buy and prep for 5 different meals.
Another positive of changing up your meals is that you’re likely to end up with a more balanced diet thanks to a range of different proteins, carbohydrates and veggies. A larger variation in your meals can mean a wider array of nutrients, diversity for your gut bacteria and less risk of nutrient deficiencies as no one food has the optimum amount of all nutrients.
