Have you ever struggled with meal prepping?
Do you find that you are getting sick and tired of plain chicken and rice every single day?
Or when you go to grab your fourth container of food it smells or tastes a little… expired?
I have found over the years that it has been difficult for me to prep my meals like a standard personal trainer/coach. Now don’t get me wrong if you have a VERY specific goal in mind, like a body-sculpting competition or a strong man tournament, then of course you need to be that rigid.
For myself, as well as a majority of my personal training clients, it’s not about the cutting and trimming you find in most weight-loss marketing ads. It is far more simpler and easier than that.
What do I mean?
For starters it’s more about watching what it is your eating on a daily basis and preparing ahead of time. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not master at this. In fact, I’m still learning as we speak, but that’s what it is all about… self-discovery… right?
What I have found over the course of this current pandemic that if I prepare things ahead of time I am far less likely going to eat out or eat like crap. Some examples include preparing my overnight oats, vegetable quiches, or my teriyaki sauce for a quick (but tasty) dinner.
Why is that?
Well, the more effort I need to put into eating a single meal the more I’ll seek out something quick and easy. And what I usually grab is not healthy and keeping me away from my goals. I have tried preparing multiple meals for the week but what I find is they do not last and it doesn’t motivate me to keep doing it.
So I have been doing some self-discovery and what I have found out is if I prep ahead of time, regardless of what it is, I am more likely going to utilize it. This is why I am super excited for this particular Youtube channel. He gives some quick and easy tips on how to meal prep, kitchen hacks, or how to make delicious food without it being too intimidating. In fact, I’ve already tried a couple of his recipes and DAMN they are good.
So I do not take any credit for this guy’s advice, but I highly recommend you check him out.
