Meal Prep 101

Meal Prep 101- how to set up a healthy week

Hey everyone, maybe you are wanting to clean up your nutrition, maybe you are apart of one of my challenge groups, maybe you are starting the 21 day fix with me or you are just wanting to set up some better systems to set you up for a healthy week and staying on track. I am going to share some TIPS and things I DO for a healthy week to save time and keep my waist from expanding.

Let’s start by talking about things you should do first:

-Kitchen clean out

-Kitchen stock up

Kitchen Clean out

I highly recommend getting ANYTHING out of the house that is NOT on your plan. You may think you have the best will power in the country but lets face it, a long day at the office, whiny kids, stress, crazy schedules and things that suddenly come up often sabotage our plans for staying on track. My rule is….if its not in the house I wont eat it.

See the video below for things to ELIMINATE

Once you have eliminated the not so healthy items, or those that will not get your to your goals, now you need to stock up on things that will. In the video I talk about what should be in your fridge and pantry.

Kitchen stock up

Now that you have your healthy food….now what?

First you should stock up on some great Tupperware of all sizes. Those using the fix, use the containers to MEASURE but they wont always hold all your food the way awesome Tupperware will. So invest in some.
