Why meal prep? Well, there are many reasons. According to Active.com when it comes to meal prepping process some benefits are:

  1. Save Money
  2. Save Time
  3. Grocery shopping could potentially be fun because you know exactly what you need

Let’s be honest though, who even likes to spend one whole day out of their week meal prepping?

We do!

We may not be experts, but we sure are health nuts and can share some easy to follow rule of thumbs.

Yes, having your meals planned out for the week you will SAVE money grocery shopping, not to mention time.

Guess what, if you’re prepared with a prepped list you won’t be throwing in those random boxes of junk food into your cart because you think you “need” it. 

*We all do it, but let's try to avoid it ;) 

You may have to sacrifice part of one day to meal prep BUT…

Think of all the time you will save throughout the week not having to cook your breakfast, lunch and dinners.

Biggest take away-meals are portion controlled.

What does this mean? Well, when you cook real food rather than eat that bag of chips for a snack, your meal is portion controlled. You know what you’re eating and where it came from AND it may help with snacking throughout the day.

We know we know, you think you have to starve yourself…

WRONG!

Ultimately, everyone is different therefore you have to see what works best for you. Bottom line is:

  1. When you’re hungry, eat; when you’re full, stop
  2. Plan to make well-balanced meals
  3. Meal-prepping can be a fun way to experiment with food
  4. It may save some time throughout the week
  5. There are companies out there that will do it for you-check em’ out
  6. If you can't meal prep every meal and need a little pick-me-up- through in a Rowdy Bar 😄

In closing-Keep It Real; Keep It Rowdy
