Planning and actually doing meal prep is alot of work, fortunately you can do a whole bunch and then just freeze them. Stocking your freezer is the key to it. You can use things such as frozen vegetables and fruits. Also using the same ingredient in several different meals helps save space and money. To save time and money you can freeze things like butter and herbs as well. Meal planning and making dinner can be as easy as freezing things and then throwing them in the oven.
- Freezers are the best kitchen tool for planning ahead and make the best use of your time and money
- You can also keep freezer staples on hand for last minute meals, like burgers, English muffins, and chicken
- It might seem intimidating at first, but your dietitian can help you plan your meals
“Whenever I have a free weekend, I aim to make 2-3 meals to either freeze for that week or in the future.”
