Meal prepping is a big trend these days, and a lot of people are taking this in consideration in their busy lives as it is less time consuming and more convenient, especially for those who are working.
Meal prepping will save you tons of time and can be your new journey towards a healthier lifestyle. It helps to save your time and control your daily wastage. It is also a great thing to do if you are trying to stop yourself from eating out.
Meal prep is basically making all your lunches at the same time and then portioning it in different containers to eat later. You can meal prep for 3-7 days at once, helping you to save time. It is a great way to grab-n-go for your busy schedule.
Consider meal prepping easy but not for everyone! It is mostly for those seeking convenience rather than variety since the meals involved are similar, if not the same, throughout the week. If you can control what you are eating, and have the same meal for more than one day, meal prepping is totally your cup of tea.
The most suggested foods for meal prep are those which are packed with different kind of nutrients, vitamins and protein.
You can store food like cooked pasta, grains, cooked meat, healthy vegetables and fruits like apples and oranges. Nuts and seeds, cheese, roasted vegetables, sauces and different kind of dips like hummus are good meal options.
Softer fruits and fried items are not good options for meal prep as they may stale quicker than others.
This is all you need to keep in mind when you start preparing your meals before the week begins; start small since it does take a little time to get used to. We hope you enjoyed this guide for those who want to start meal prepping and make their way towards a healthier lifestyle.
Being a Pakistani, food has always been my comforter, be it me getting happy over a happy meal or my father asking me to go to school just to get sweets in return. Food is not just about eating, its a sentiment that connects people with each other. I started writing for Food Tribune because of my love for food.
