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.
So don't make excuses of not having enough time for YOU and YOUR HEALTH.
We "all" have time . . . if we just look for it.
And if you can't find it . . . "make" it
Because . . . believe it or not . . . "meal prepping" can actually make your life easier . . . once you get the hang of it.
How is that you ask???
Well . . . you'll save time during the day looking for something to eat . . . if it's already prepared. It actually saves you money because you're not grabbing something out of the house like fast food and you can better manage your portion sizes.
"Meal-prepping" will also get you better and quicker results in your weight loss efforts.
You see . . . this helps you shop smarter, cook ahead, save time and therefore . . . helps to reach your weight-loss goals faster.
And with this . . . it also helps to "control our eating" during the holiday season or anytime.
So PEOPLE . . . I can't say it enough . . .
It's time to get a better "relationship" with the food we eat.
Tomorrow we'll talk about those breakfast bars that are so quick and easy to consume.
