Meal Prep 101

Imagine coming home after having a long day—the last thing you want to do is make dinner. But don’t worry! By prepping in advance, you can grab something from the freezer and throw it in the oven, microwave, crockpot, or instant pot for a very quick and easy meal.

Meal prep has become more and more popular in recent years. Whether you’re a family, a couple, or single, meal prepping is a great way to choose healthy options, save time, and increase consistency.

Although there are several wholesale clubs to facilitate this, you don’t need a pay for a membership in either to buy or cook in bulk. You can buy when items go on sale and freeze the ingredients to meal prep for later. You’ll need to set aside some time up front, but in the end you can save a lot of time when you need it most—when you’re tired at the end of the day. Plus, meal prep is one of those things that the more you do, the easier it becomes.
