Top 5 Reasons To Meal Prep

Meal Prep Your Way To Time Freedom, Health, and Wealth

Time is money, and money is time . . . at least that’s how the popular saying goes. And in today’s fast paced, technologically savvy, and go-go-go society, time is the single most important currency you will ever have. After your health of course. And you can have it all, if you choose to do so

Picture this . . . you have had the most exhausting day at work and you look forward to going to the gym on your way home from work, except, you remember that you have no dinner cooked at home. You realize that your fridge is empty, save for some condiments and some bottles of wine. Feeling overwhelmed, you think, The gym can wait, I can always go to my workout tomorrow. I’ll go grab some groceries now and meal prep for the rest of the week.

Finally at the grocery store as you browse each aisle, you pick up your “must have” items: cereal, fruits, veggies, some protein sources, and snacks. You hear a rather menacing growl and for a moment, you panic, only to realize that it was your stomach growling. I am so freaking hungry, I could eat a buffet right now. You check your cell phone for the time and notice you’ve been grocery shopping for almost two hours; You race frantically to the cashier but are enticed by the aroma of the instant food-to-go counter strategically placed near the checkout lanes. A detour is in order. You end up binge ordering some fried chicken, potato wedges, mac and cheese, and a small salad (to ease the guilt).

You arrive home “hangry,” tired, and of course feeling guilty that you spent money on fast food while you also purchased groceries. You are too drained to meal prep now and resort to scarfing down your food-to-go items. Meanwhile, the fresh groceries get shoved into the fridge, afterall, cutting, dicing, batch prepping can wait for another day, just like the gym, just like your health. Those new year, new you resolutions can wait yet another day. Feeling dejected, you wish you had more time in your day to do all the things you want. For now, barely surviving each day will have to do.

Still baffled as to how you can gain time freedom and more with meal prep services? Below are 5 reasons to start meal prepping today:

 

  • Save time. Meal prep services can save you hours of time and makes transitioning from the fast food, instant food lifestyle much easier as there is always a healthy meal already prepared and ready for you. Imagine having almost an extra eight to ten hours in your week to do whatever it is you like. Be it going to networking events or spending time with loved ones, partaking in more fitness activities or even going on a R&R getaway. There is nothing like having time freedom.

  • Save money. Simply put, meal prep services can help you save money because a) you know exactly what you are paying for - there are a variety of packages and options that can be customized to suit your lifestyle. And b) you are less tempted to spend money on takeout or fast food because you finally have your breakfast, lunch, and dinner all prepared and accounted for. Lastly, c) use the money you save each month from your meal prep service as a mini investment into your physical, mental, emotional, and financial wellbeing.

  • Avoid temptation and stay in charge. Having healthy meals prepped for you, ready to eat at your convenience means that you no longer have to worry about having a pack of Cheetos for dinner or leftover pizza for breakfast ever again. This also means that you will be able to sustain your lifestyle change and stick to eating clean and healthy each day. Meal prep will also show you that food can be nutritious and tasty at the same time. Whoever said kale had to be boring? Or that tofu or chicken had to be bland and rubbery? You can stay in charge of your health and have fun while doing so.

  • Reduce stress. Remember the version of you in the grocery store story? The person in that story was stressed. They were stressed because they had no meals prepped. No time in their day to live life the way they desired. They were constantly running on empty because they weren’t fuelling their body with the right nutrition or even enough of it. Stress itself is one of the leading causes of multiple illnesses. So save yourself and your family by checking one huge item off the list and find a meal prep service that works for you. Meal prep services can reduce your stress levels by providing you a daily supply of healthy meals all designed to boost your immunity, build your muscle, and help you stay fit, train lean, and live clean.

  • Helps maintain a sustainable ecosystem. Not only is meal prepping healthy and economically friendly, it is also environmentally friendly. By making a conscious choice to eat clean, eat local and eat sustainably, the benefits are twofold. You get to live a healthier, happier life while helping local farmers and small businesses sustain themselves and together, everyone thrives! Additionally, you reduce food waste because all meals are portioned into the exact portions of macro and micro nutrients needed to help satiate your appetite, nourish your body, and sustain as fuel for you to thrive every single day. What’s not to love?
