The concept of preparing meals in advance, A.K.A ‘meal prepping’, has become an increasingly popular trend and an incredibly helpful healthy eating strategy. The hectic nature of today’s lifestyle makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to have enough time to cook your lunchtime meals at home each day. When you have a busy schedule, being caught without pre-prepared food can often lead you to grabbing the most convenient food option available for a quick fix– most likely take away or junk food.

Failing to prepare can set you up to fail, and this is where food prepping can help keep you on a healthy eating pathway.

There is no right or wrong way to prepare your meals, and it will often depend on what your weekly schedule looks like to determine how many and what type of meals to prepare. Given this, here are some of our top ideas for meal prepping your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks:
