Meal Prepping

“If you fail to plan, plan to fail!”

 -Ben Franklin

Prepping your meals on Sunday is one of the best ways to make eating during the week easy and convenient.  When making your meals, try and find foods that are easy to make and that you enjoy.  Many people when starting a new nutrition program make the mistake of making bland food that isn’t enjoyable, (I know I was guilty of this.)  You have to find nutrient dense foods that you love and fit them into your meal preps.

For example: Tomatoes are a great source of vitamins and minerals and are relatively low in calories.  I HATE tomatoes, so I don’t put them in my meals.  I find alternative foods that have the same nutrition benefits and add those instead.  Many people try to force down nasty shakes, protein bars and pre-made meals because that’s what some one told them worked for them, or it’s the only way to lose weight. You need to find what works for you and stick with it.

So, when planning your meals for the week, think of what you enjoy and plan accordingly.
