9 Meal Prep Ideas That Are Total Food Goals
Meet the tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas that'll get you through the week
This weekly ritual, which involves preparing a week's worth of meals in advance -- usually on Sunday -- boasts a whole bunch of benefits. First, it keeps your eating in check. You know that diet you've said you're going to start every Monday for the past three years? Prepping your meals in advance helps you stick to your plan and reduces temptation when you're starving and stuck on what to eat.
In addition to keeping your snacking on track, meal prep can keep your budget in line, as well. After all, there's no need to spring for a pricey sandwich at lunch when you bring your own tasty, self-prepared meal. Plus, with a set grocery list every week, those impulse buys are less tempting. And maybe most importantly, meal prep saves time. By cramming all of your food prep into Sunday, you free yourself up the rest of the week. When you come home from a long day, dinner will be waiting for you in the fridge. Ah, what a life.
So stock up on your Tupperware, and get ready to make your grocery lists. These nine delicious meal prep ideas are about to transform your hum-drum breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
