On average we spend 10-12 hours each week just organizing our meals.

It sounds like an incredible amount of time but if you take into account the planning, shopping, cooking and preparing that time soon adds up.

Hang on, I forgot the cleaning!! That’s a load of time we’re wasting every single week. That’s over 600 hours in a year, 26 spent just making your meals.

So if you could cut that down by 3/4 you would probably see the value in it, right?

Is Meal Prepping for You?

Starting to meal prep has many benefits.

Of course, people jump at the idea of meal prepping watch a few Youtube videos and think it all pretty easy.

If you struggle with just cooking one dinner in the evening it’s a lot to take on.

Take on too much and you’re likely to struggle with the overwhelm of all the ingredients laid out and having to cook them all.

That’s a very legitimate motivation. You get excited about the new dishes you are going to cook, you’ll become a better cook and all that free time that is up for grabs you want to do it the best you can.

And you can achieve all of these things, it also won’t happen overnight.

So what do you do? Well, if you’re going to jump in the world of meal prepping alone then you are better off starting with the don’ts: Don’t ever over complicate it, start simple & build on that.

The three core components of planning are:

1️⃣  Where will the dishes be cooked, oven, stovetop, slow cooker etc

2️⃣  What dishes, pans or utensils do I need to cook these dishes

3️⃣  How long will each dish take, longest dishes should go on first.
