I have been on my health and fitness journey for the past year. During this time, I have been learning different ways to make eating healthy quick and easy. I have found there are essentially two diffrent ways to prepare your food for the week ahead. Meal Prepping and Food Prepping are very similar, but there are a few differences. In the Health and Fitness industry, Meal prepping is hyped up a lot, but personally, I prefer Food Prepping instead.
I love to mix it up and use a bit of meal prepping and food prepping each week to diversify what is in my fridge. When I have a variety of easily accessible healthy foods in my fridge, I am more likely to eat well.
I find myself preferring to meal prep when I have found a meal that I know I will eat time and time again. This is a way I can really be sure that the meal I prepared wouldn’t go to waste. There was a point in my healthy journey where I would meal prep a bunch of meals during the week – and they would still be in my fridge at the end of the week. By mixing meal prepping and food prepping together each week, I found a way to eliminate the food waste. Here are a few of my personal favorite meal prepping recipes
Food Prep is as simple as it seems. I prep a few healthy foods that I can keep in the fridge and grab when I am getting hungry. This gives me some healthy options to choose over the junk food in our house. This is also a way to have some foods prepped to make a meal easily.
- Washing Grapes, Strawberries
- Rinsing Lettuce & Spinach
- Cutting up Zucchini, Cucumbers
- Grilling BBQ Chicken
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Carrots and dip
