When it comes to meal prep and planning, many of us might feel overwhelmed or believe that it's a hard thing to do.
However, it's just a matter of remaining organized and here's a few tips to ensure that it's easier for you:
Once you decide to meal prep, always start small like most other things. Begin planning out a few meals and slowly build as you get the hang of it.
With anything, ensuring that you have high quality tools are so important. The same goes for meal prepping. Having enough containers and ensuring that they store well for a number of days is imperative.
Especially now, having a well stocked pantry is so important. Ensuring that you have healthy, versatile foods such as baking essentials, oils, legumes, canned goods, etc. will allow you to make various types of food for the week while keeping things interesting.
When it comes to meal prepping or just making meals, having a go-to place for recipes not only makes things easy, but keeps you organized and less overwhelmed. Luckily, we've been creating great roundups for pantry staples (among others) to help with this!
