How to Meal Prep

Spend 1 hour per week Meal Prepping, and you have set yourself up for a great week of staying on track.


Meal prep is arguably one of the best things you can do in your weight loss journey. An hour in the kitchen on Sunday will help you get organised for the week ahead so you don’t have to worry about falling off track in your nutrition.

Here are my top reasons for why meal prep is such a saviour for those with a busy schedule:

Saves Time Think about your typical lunches from Monday to Wednesday, you’ll probably spend some time in the morning getting your lunch ready, or heading to a shop in the middle of the day to pick something up.

We all know morning and midday is probably the busiest time, and we would kill for an extra few minutes in either. Meal prep does exactly that. You won’t have to think about what you're going to eat, make your lunch, or go to the shop because it’s already prepared and ready to go.

An hour on a Sunday preparing your lunch might not sound like the greatest activity, but it’s much easier to do it then than on the day.

Plus, you don’t even have to give cooking your full attention, stick on Netflix and catch up on your favourite show, or get the kids involved by teaching them about good nutrition, and get them to help you cut the veg.

Saves Money If you’re always picking up lunch from the nearest shop or take-out, you probably see your bank account taking quite the hit. Cooking from home saves a ton of money that can be used for much more important things. If you buy your lunch, give meal prep a try and compare how much money you spend, I guarantee you’ll be shocked.

Healthier Picking up food on the go isn’t typically associated with healthy food choices. Sure, there are healthy things out there, but when we’re in a rush we typically choose something that sounds appealing in the moment, and that typically isn’t the healthiest of choices.

Preparing your food at home makes sure you’re including the healthiest foods to help you on your weight loss journey. When time becomes limited you won’t have to think about the health content of your food, because that’s already been taken care of.

Consistency Having our food prepared in advance means we’re more likely to stay on track with our weight loss journey. When our meal is prepared, we’re going to eat exactly that. If it’s not, we might choose something not so good for us. Meal prep eliminates that element of choice between the good, and not so good foods.

So, how do we meal prep? Every Sunday I want you to choose your recipes and make them for Monday-Wednesday. Even if you choose the longer recipe, you're making 3 batches, so you’re still saving time in the long run.

When you’re done, store them in Tupperware, let them cool, then keep them in the fridge. You don’t have to completely assemble everything on Sunday, you can keep things separate until the day.

For example, if you’re having a wrap, make the filling in advance, then assemble the wrap the morning of, this way you’re maximising freshness.

Additionally, you can keep foods fresher by adding a preserver, for example, squeezing lime over and avocado helps it stay fresher for longer.
