When you have rushed mornings, meal prep is key! Here are 6 tips for easy weight loss!
1. Create a Keto Menu for the Week
Meal prep is easy when you know exactly what’s on the menu for the week. When you’re creating your weekly meal plan, choose meals that have the same ingredients so you don’t have to pick up too many things at the grocery store. Ingredient overlap is key! Make a list and stick to it!
2. Carve out a Time to Prep and Cook
Many people like to meal prep on Sundays, but pick a time and day that works best for you. Unless you schedule in the time to shop, prep and cook, it probably won’t happen. You’ll need about 2 to 3 hours, so figure out when you can best fit it into your schedule.
3. Invest in Meal Prep Containers
Meal prep is so much easier when you have the proper containers to store your food in. They’ll help you keep your ingredients and meals organized so you can put your meals together in a snap!
4. Chop Your Veggies
If you’re following the keto diet, you likely have lots of meals that contain vegetables. Wash and chop all your veggies up on meal prep day to save you work during the week. This goes for veggies that are going to be kept raw, or used to cook in a dish. Either way, you’ll get huge time savings.
5. Prep Your Protein
Prepping protein such as sausage, eggs, and beans is a great way to save time during your busy weekdays. You can make them on meal prep days and keep them stored in the fridge to throw into your meals when you need them.
6. Cook Small
Foods like muffins and puffs are easy to make and small enough to store in your freezer. Rather than thawing a whole dish, you can take them out when you’re ready to go and save lots of time!
