Most manageable meal prep advice
We are sharing this because we could often OVERTHINK meal planning and prepping.
His advice is so simple and so foolproof that it completely transformed how you approach your meals.
Here it is:
“As long as you put together ingredients that taste good, your meal is going to taste good.”
However, take it to the next level – with one slight change:
- Add the words “healthy whole food” to the ingredient criteria:
- “As long as you put together healthy, whole food ingredients that taste good, your meal will be healthy and taste good.”
You can spend too much time making over-complicated recipes; it always felt like a chore.
You know, something fancy like “braised Brussels sprouts with pork tenderloin and peaches.”
Which is fun sometimes but gets old fast, and the cleanup takes way too much time.
Instead, it’s all about putting together:
Delicious protein + delicious vegetable + healthy fat + (sometimes) a whole grain.
And it was then adding seasoning or sauce that tastes great! Or you can even throw them together in a pot with some broth and make a soup.
Pre-prepped chicken, ground turkey, salmon, tofu, etc.
Sauteed carrots, roasted cauliflower, sweet potatoes, etc.
Jasmine rice, quinoa, chickpea pasta, etc.
When it’s time to put together a meal for lunch or dinner, all you have to do is grab the ingredients and put them together.
It’s not always fancy, but it IS always healthy and delicious. And it can keep you on track with my goals and energized to take on my day.
It’s the small, simple steps that add up to BIG RESULTS!
