So so so many people ask me about meal prepping!
Do I spend all day Sunday cooking? Is my refrigerator full of portioned out meals? Do I cook every day?
Nope. Nah. Not usually!
So how do I do it? I’ve spoken before about my “method” that I refer to as the garanimals of eating, and that’s part of it. But a big part of getting the food into the fridge is my other…secret? If it can be called that, it’s not going to be one anymore!
Don’t cook more often, cook more at a time!
Making chicken? Make a bunch! Making sweet potatoes? Bunch! Oatmeal? You know it…bunch! Cutting up vegetables? Cut more!
You’re already making stuff, dirtying dishes, etc..make it worth it. You’re probably thinking that this is the same as what we all think of as meal prep, but it takes very little extra time to make more of something! I’m not saying to make all of this at once. I’m saying that when you cook, make extra.
It’s all about the leftovers!
What are some of your secrets?
