Coach Ashley McLaughlin Gives tips on Meal Prepping!
I get asked all the time how I meal plan and prep.
So many people want to get into their own meal planning and prep routine so they can not only eat healthier and feel better, but also to save time and money! The thing is, there’s no one way to meal plan and prep. What works for one person or one family may not work for another, and that’s ok! I recommend starting by planning your breakfasts each week. Find 2-3 options that you love, are nutritious, and you can make ahead and store in the fridge or quickly grab and go. This helps you stay consistent throughout the week. A couple great options are Shakeology, egg cups, and fruit and yogurt parfaits. Next move on to dinner. Yes, we’re skipping over lunch for a second. Plan your dinners for the week. Then, plan to make enough so you can have leftovers the next day. 2-for-1…yes please! If you don’t love leftovers, plan 2-3 simple lunches that you can mix and match all week. Then, simply fill in your snacks. Great options are fruit and yogurt, fruit and peanut butter, veggies and hummus, ham and cheese rollups, mixed nuts, Shakeology, string cheese, rice cakes, and cottage cheese. This is the exact process I follow when I meal plan and prep. It makes me feel prepared but also gives me the freedom to mix and match as I see fit!
