Why Meal Prep:

When I think of meal prep I immediately think of weight loss, but meal prep has benefits beyond dropping a few pounds.

  • Saving Money – No matter what you tell yourself, packing your own lunch is cheaper than takeout. Even if the takeout is $5 a packed lunch is cheaper. Trust me. Portioning your food also saves money – If you take a chili recipe that serves 6 and portion those servings out into 6 containers you won’t eat double the portion without thinking and have to buy more food later.
  • Special Diets – If you’re vegan, like me, or subscribe to any other special diet you never have to worry about food meeting your needs.
  • Environment – Every time you eat takeout the packaging, bag, utensils, and cup eventually end up in the landfill. Bringing ¬†your own lunch to school or work reduces waste and your negative impact on the environment.
  • Health – If nutrition is a concern, meal prep insures you always have a healthy meal prepared.
