6 Top Tips to Meal Prepping like a Pro!| Naked Nuts Nutrition

Meal prepping…I must admit, I hear this term splashed around, and, as a nutritionist (future nutritionist πŸ™‚ ) I probably should be doing this…but I don’t. I used to be a  “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of cook. You know the type, open the freezer/fridge at some point in the afternoon and say “okay, what’s for dinner today?” Some of you may be asking “how can you function like that?” or “How do you go grocery shopping without a plan?” Or, maybe you’re like me and just sort of “go with the flow”. I do keep the house stocked with healthy, whole fruits, vegetables, free range meat/chicken/fish. I just didn’t plan or prep for specific meals.

Now, however, I create weekly menus. Even that simple step helps tremendously. There’s something comforting about knowing what’s on the menu, or what to cook on any particular day. Planning also helps to remain on a healthy, whole food eating plan. So, now that I plan menus, meal prep is the next logical step.


While meal prepping is a wonderful idea, and logical, when it comes to meal prepping, I’m pretty useless. So, I decided to do some research and found 3 sites with meal prep ideas and recipes:

  1. 12 brilliant meal prep ideas to free up your time-DAILY BURN
  2. 7 Indispensable Meal-Prep Secrets You Need To Know-PREVENTION MAGAZINE
  3. 10 Delicious Meal Prep Ideas That Will Make Your Day So Much Easier-SIMPLE MOST

I also I came across this wonderful article from fellow blogger “Naked Nuts Nutrition”, highlighting 6 tips for meal prep.

Food prepping doesn’t have to mean spending your whole weekend in the supermarket or the kitchen slaving over a hot stove. Preparation is everything when it comes to losing weight and healthy habit…

If you’re not a meal prepper, I hope these tips and articles help you. If you are a veteran meal prepper, maybe these ideas will give you some new options. Enjoy!

    Brilliant. love the infographic. As a new blogger on nutrition I should probably also opt out of the seat of the pants mode…
