We like to compare meal prepping to setting a budget. This is because it is the exact same principle at play. When setting a budget, you pick a limit of how much you are going to spend and then divide that among the resources you need. The other part of a budget that must be thought through is considering how long each resource will last. The purpose of a budget is to get you to spend mindful and save money.
A budget is a plan for your financial health. Meal prepping is a plan for your body’s health. Meal prepping involves buying all your vegetables at the start of the week. It also includes preparing and cooking food ahead of your actual meals. This will not only limit your consumption to a healthy amount but will also limit the amount you spend on food.
Think about it, meal prepping gives you a plan. Anytime you have a plan you are likely to spend less. It seems like a no brainer to us. We want you to spend less and live healthier. Meal prepping could be the missing puzzle piece to your weight-loss journey. For more information on why you should meal prep, click here.
