"Meal Prep" is important for "Pattern Eating"
So what is this "meal prep" thing all about???
Well . . . "meal prepping" is the concept of preparing whole meals or dishes ahead of schedule. And since it requires you to determine what to eat ahead of time . . . meal prepping can lead to more nutritious meal choices.
Meal planning helps to ensure you're eating a variety of different foods, which can reduce the risk of chronic lifestyle diseases.
And it allows you to eat your favorite meals, while pre-determining portion size so you don't "overindulge".
So the question for today is this . . . do you watch TV at night before you go to bed?
Well . . . that would be a perfect time to take a break for a few minutes to work on writing down your "meal plan" for the next week.
And what about an hour during the day to set aside a block of time to prep ingredients and/or cook meals for the week ahead.
I "know" you can find the time to do this . . . for YOUR HEALTH!
Now . . . I'm sure some of us are saying . . . I don't have time for "meal prep" . . . I'm lucky if I have time to grab something to eat and run . . .
And this is why we're in the situation we are today of being overweight and unhealthy. . .
There is "nothing" more important in life than "your own" health. Because without it . . . you have NOTHING.
It's time to "prioritize" PEOPLE . . . we're not getting any younger and it pretty much looks like we're going to have some kind of "virus" or mystery disease hanging around for a few more years.
