If you’re like most of us, you have a schedule that wasn’t built around a normal time clock. It seems there’s never enough time in a day for you to accomplish anything. Even when there’s not enough time at hand, it’s still important to maintain a healthy diet, that is if you want to preserve a girlish figure. Well, this blog will help you manage your time better leading to top results while waist training.
If you haven’t done so already, you’ll want to invest in additional containers with lids, Ziploc bags (both freezer and regularly and in a variety of sizes) and stickers or labels to write dates and contents on. In some cases, you can write on the bag or container with a Sharpie, but then you’re looking at a mess. Another great solution for containers is mason jars. You can buy mason jars at Walmart for under $10 or you can buy a case of 24 for under $20. Mason jars are excellent for layered salads and they keep the food fresh for longer.
Next make a grocery list and be ready to go on a market excursion. Making a list is imperative to getting all the ingredients. But, stick to the list and don’t go to the grocery store hungry. This will prevent you from going over budget and buying things that aren’t healthy.
Take a step back before going to the store and look at any recipes that you’ll be indulging in. Are there similar ingredients you’ll be needing across the board? The idea behind meal prepping is to save money and time. Buying in bulk and only making one trip to the grocery store will make your life easier and more cost effective.
Many people that run hectic schedules do the following:
Shop on Saturday
Shopping Saturday is not only ideal it’s fun. This is also a more cost effective day to do things. Since the new deals come out on Sundays, there’s a good chance the ingredients you buy on Saturday may be on sale.
Make Meals on Sunday
Sunday is a day of rest. If you’re anything like me, I find cooking, relaxing and enjoyable. But, this tends to be the laziest day out of the two. More importantly, do your major cooking and prep your meals for the rest of your week is a great way to save time.
If you’re making something like a low-calorie meatloaf on Sunday and there’s enough leftover, freeze it! Make sure you have proper sealing in your containers and label it with a date. Remember, there’s no preservatives to keep food fresh and frozen food can turn bad. Safety first.
Take Inventory Throughout the Week
These are just a few ways to plan what you’re going to make, allowing you to save time and money. You’ll find that by getting together all your food for the following week, your life will be more sane and enjoyable. The best part is, you’ll be losing weight and leaning toward a sexier you!
