Easy Meal Preparation for Fitness Goals

October 14, 2015

Eating properly and trying to stick to some sort of meal structure when you’re extremely busy can be a challenge for sure. It’s easy to get caught off-guard, but the last thing you want to do is start your day with a fast food breakfast sandwich, eat out for lunch, and come home from work so tired that you can’t even think about making dinner.

To succeed, you need a food strategy. And being prepared is more than half of that strategy. Here are some easy meal preparation tips that will help you get to your fitness goals:

  • Get rid of non-optimal foods in your kitchen so they won’t tempt you.
  • Plan your meals ahead of time. Keep it simple.
  • Grocery shop and purchase only what you need (make a list).
  • Bulk prepare and cook some items once or twice a week.
  • Get some high quality containers for on-the-go storage.
  • Organize your fridge. Seeing healthy food helps you make good choices.
  • Assemble your meals the night before, and take them with you. Use a portable cooler bag and some ice packs.
