Clean Eating Meal Prep Tips

Plan Your Meals

Take a few minutes on Sunday or Monday to choose your recipes for the week and get the grocery shopping out the way. Make it easy on yourself by selecting recipes that you can eat more than once, or that you know you can use for multiple meals. Chose recipes with vegetables that are in season. Save them to a Pinterest board or screenshot your favorites-whatever works best for you. Just find a system!

Chop Your Veggies & Buy in Bulk

Often you can buy in bulk and save money. Produce can be costly, but it does go on sale-watch for ads! Wash and chop all of your fruits and vegetables for the week the moment you get home from the store. Don’t put it off! If you hate this chore or you’d like to save a little cash frozen fruits and veggies will work just fine! They are picked when fresh and full of vitamins and nutrients!

Don’t Spend All Weekend in the Kitchen

Cook a bunch of brown rice, whole wheat pasta, sweet potatoes, and quinoa on Sunday for the week’s lunch and dinner meals. These are healthy starches that will last up to 4-5 days in the fridge. Do this, and you’ll be ahead of the game! Plus you’ll always have something to eat in case you get hungry and tempted to drive through McDonald’s!Batch cook chicken and vegetables in the oven to save time later. Chicken can be used in all sorts of recipes from salads to soups! This is a huge time-saver!Related: 30 Healthy Make-Ahead Meals For The Freezer Stock up on shredded chicken by using this super easy crockpot recipe! Just take 4-6 boneless chicken breasts and add 1/2 cup water or chicken broth for every pound of chicken. Put everything in the slow cooker for 5 hours on low or 3 hours on high. Make sure you shred the chicken while it’s warm! Portion it out into 2 cup portions in an airtight container. (Most recipes call for this amount.) It’s ok for the fridge for four days or 4 months in the freezer.Make your snacks ahead of time and portion them out! It’s easy to go crazy grazing! Keep a few baggies or containers in your car or at work so you’ll be prepared when hunger hits!
