Hello wellness warriors and happy holidays!
Healthy eating is essential for losing weight and living well. However if your life is busy like mine the last thing you want to do after a crazy day is dream up a healthy low calorie or low fat meal. I mean who has time for that?
It seems much easier to pop a quick meal in the microwave or grab something less nutritious on the run. Would you like to know the easiest way to healthy eating at mealtime?
Today we are going to talk about meal prepping and how it helps sustain healthy eating and losing weight. I will also show you how easy it is to make a salad in a jar during this quick video.
Meal prepping is a simple concept but one that will save you time and money, and it gives you nutritious alternatives when it comes to dinner or fixing lunches for the kids. Professional chefs have all of their ingredients pre-prepped, within arms’ reach, so they can just focus on cooking. You can do this at home by setting aside a weekend afternoon or maybe a few hours during the week to plan, shop and prep your meals.
