Fast and Easy Meal Preparation
  • Plan your meals ahead of time
  • Go to the store once per week with your plan.  Come home and prep your food.
  • Cut/chop/dice your produce and put it in containers.  By it pre-cut or frozen to save time.
  • Prep vegetables or salad in bulk quantities.
  • Use rotisserie chicken for multiple meals.
  • Grill a lot of chicken for the week.
  • Make double helpings so you have leftovers that you can eat the next day or to freeze.
  • Soups are one of my favorite foods to freeze.  You can also freeze grilled meats.  Healthy casseroles also freeze well.
One Simple Change can have a Big Impact on Your Health
  • Reduce portions- eat 3 bites less at lunch and dinner than you normally would for 365 days.  You will lose 20 lbs.
  • Drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of water or hydrating beverages.
  • Increase your fruits and veggies to a minimum of 5 total per day and strive for 7-10.
