7 Steps for Meal Prep Success

  1. Choose a specific day of the week to prep your meals.

  2. Stick up on shelf-stable ingredients such as pasta, beans, grains, jarred sauces, rice, oils, spices, etc.

  3. On meal prep day, focus on foods that take the longest to prepare such as meat, dried beans, roasted veggies, etc.

  4. Consider staples and easy to grab foods such as hardboiled eggs, washed greens for salads, cooked beans, etc.

  5. Prep food you don’t want to cook immediately such as marinated meat and freeze in freezer-safe bags for easy access later.

  6. Make extra portions that can be used for the following week, but be sure to store in freezer-safe containers and date/label when it was prepared.

  7. Pack meals in individual containers that you can easily grab and go, and portion out foods based on your dietary needs and goals.
