One of the best ways to ensure you stick to your clean eating plan is to meal prep. Not only can it help regulate your health choices, it can help you save money and stave off hunger. Whether you’ve considered trying meal prepping, or you’ve tried and failed, meal prepping is a great thing to add to your 2020 resolutions. Here are some tips to help you meal prep properly, from your Lincoln Park chiropractor.
Make a Meal Plan
Yes, this is the most obvious step, but many people skip over this. It’s a good idea to really sit down and think about your week and how many meals you’d like to make, as not all weeks are the same. Do you have more dinners out planned this week than usual? Consider drafting a list of all the meals you know you’ll have to eat at home, and go from there.
Include Breakfast in Your Meal Prep
Especially if you’re unfamiliar with meal prepping, or just trying it out for the first time, meal prepping breakfast can be a great place to start. Many of us already have a habit or routine in place for breakfast, so this is a natural start for meal prepping. Like any new process in our lives, it can be difficult to jump into meal prepping head first.
Let Yourself Cut Some Corners
One of the biggest misconceptions people have about meal prepping is that you need to create everything in your meals from scratch. This is not correct. If it works best for you, buy pre-riced cauliflower and stock up on shortcut staples like rotisserie chicken.
