I joined Epicure in July 2020 to add healthier seasonings, ingredients, and products to my pantry and families diet. It has been a fun, flavorful, and fabulous time. In addition to adding healthier foods into our diets, I enjoy sharing Epicure, and it's benefits, with others.
Epicure isn't one more thing I do but instead, it's the ONE THING I do that makes eating healthy, saving time in the kitchen, and staying on course with my goals for living and eating healthy.
One way I stay the course is to dedicate time on Sundays and Monday to meal prep for the week.
A few weeks ago I found a recipe for a gluten free cookie dough bites. Since then, I've taken this recipe from it's original form into two different recipes - 1) a variation of the original and 2) a chocolate-peanut butter variation for hubby.
In addition to a healthy snack alternative for my post-workout and mid-afternoon cravings, I prep my breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the week. This has saved me time and calories during the week, blessings I count. Why is meal prepping so beneficial?
Personally, it prevents the need to stop for something quick because I know when I get home, after a quick 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave, a healthy, low sodium, and filling meal is waiting for me. When you know there is something already waiting, you don't have to stop for fast food or other convenience foods.
I encourage you to try at least prepping one meal this coming week. I started with breakfast, it's the easiest. I've been doing protein oatmeal with fruit and greens, then when I reheat it, I add Greek yogurt. It's filling and when I do this, I don't find the need to snack before lunch. Click here for one of the first recipes I tried. If you are a veteran or newbie meal planner and prep person, what pointers would you give someone just starting out? What is the greatest benefit you find from taking the time to plan and prep for the week in advance?
