Meal prepping sounds a little extreme to most, but during the CMCO and MCO period we have been staying home and eating way more than we should be. There are a lot of benefits from meal prepping that you should know!
People who meal prep will be able to eat cleaner and choose ahead of time what you will be eating without scrambling for unhealthy food. Good nutrition won't only contribute to a slimmer waistline, but also a healthier lifestyle!
The only time you will need to spend on is to plan out your meals properly and cook them, but these are all in one go. You won't need to waste time daily thinking about what to cook and eat while all you need to do is take out the prepped meal from the fridge and eat!
Portion Control/ Less Wastage
Packing your meals in containers will help with controlling the portion of food you put into your body. Especially if you are trying to lose weight, you need to consume the right amount of nutrients for your body. At the same time, you will be able to lessen wastage by cooking everything in your fridge without having it rot or spoil. Planning out your meal is very important so you won't overbuy groceries to cook!
If you're planning ahead, chances are you won't be overspending because you know what you are going for! Instead of going to the stores a couple of times a week, all you need to do is buy everything in one go for the week!
Helps Lose Weight
Meal prepping will allow you to control the amount of calories you are taking which is perfect for losing weight. The key to meal prepping is to plan thoroughly!
Improve Cooking Skills
While you may be cooking a lot in one go, skills like cooking for a large crowd or even just being comfortable cooking in the kitchen can be learned by meal prepping!
Coming home from a long day can be very stressful, especially when you have to think of what to cook for dinner on a daily! The stress can add up and disrupt your digestive system and also immune system in the long run. Knowing that you've already prepped food in the fridge and it's good to go can be very relaxing and assuring!
