How to Meal Prep: Beginner Meal Prep Ideas, Recipes and Tips

1. Cooking healthy meals when you’re busy can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Preparing large amounts of food and then storing it in the fridge or freezer to eat another dayknown as meal-prepping — is a great way to eat healthy food while saving time and money, and not wasting any food. Here’s some advice to get you started.
2. Plan your meals

First, plan what meals you want to make for the week and when you’re going to make them. Try to sit down and plan your meals on the same day every week and make it part of your routine.

(1)Are you good at cooking? Do you prefer cooking at home or eating out at a restaurant? Why?
(2)Do you enjoy shopping for groceries?

3. Start by making up to four plans — and shopping lists — that you can repeat. You can make changes to your meal plans or make new ones later on too.

You’ll want your food to stay fresh until you need it or you’ll have to throw away all your hard work! So make sure to use good, airtight containers.

4. Most food stored in the fridge should stay fresh for three to four days, according to the US Department of Food Safety. If you won’t be eating your food within three to four days, freeze it instead.
(1)What ingredients do you cook with most often? What meals do you tend to repeat most often?
(2)What was the hardest thing to cook?
5. Use versatile ingredients
6. For example, chicken can be added to a salad, a sandwich, a soup or even eaten on its own with some vegetables on the side. And chickpeas can be added to salads and curries, or made into falafel or hummus.

(1)Do you use recipes to cook? If so, where do you get the best recipes?
(2)Do you have any particular dietary restrictions?
(3)Who’s the best cook you know? How often do they cook for you?
