TIP: Prep Day
Ever notice that we tend to eat at our worst when we’re totally unprepared to eat?
We are busy doing this and that, hunger hits, and the easy options are calorie-dense but nutritionally-vacant.
We need to prepare to eat with a prep day. At least one day a week, I cook 2 proteins in bulk so that they are ready for me to pull out of the fridge and eat with an easy to make carb or vegetable. It’s proteins that can take the longest time to make, so I make them ahead of time in bulk.
Sometimes I will also cook a starchy carb in bulk, like potatoes or rice, in advance as well.
The point is that I am prepared for my meals, and am rarely caught off guard.
Take one day this week and prepare some food you enjoy and is healthy, then use it for a few meals for days afterward.
Also, look for the hashtag #foodprepsunday on Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter.
You will find a lot of people who are also preparing to learn from.
