While many of us will be using Daylight Savings to catch a much-needed hour of extra sleep this Sunday, those more motivated may want to use it to set up a healthy week - with meal prepping!
Though “meal prep” may elicit a couple eye-rolls in the age of social media, with many health and fitness instagrammers posting colorful shots of their elaborated prepped and packed, and portioned meals for the week, there’s a reason why the practice is so popular. Cooking / assembling healthy, delicious meals in advance helps save time, money, stress and most importantly - hanger.
Preparing meals for an entire week may seem like a daunting task - and eating the same thing day in and day out may feel a bit mechanical and monotonous. Who wants to say no to a spontaneous lunch date to eat out of a Tupperware container?
Luckily, there’s always a happy medium. Prepping food for the week can be as simple as making a huge pot of quinoa, or jar of overnight oats in advance while keeping your favourite toppings easily accessible to mix and match as you like. Chop up a variety of veggies to have on hand that can be roasted / sautéed / steamed with a variety of spices and sauces.
We personally love the “Glory Bowl” model - making sure to keep a soup, grain, salad, and dressing ready to go in the fridge so that whipping up a delicious and nutritious meal takes (nearly) zero effort.
