A Fool-Proof Guide to Meal Prepping

Looking to save time and money? You need to get meal prepping! This week a food blogger, and Muscle Food fan, has shown how you can cook up a week’s worth of meals in just 90 minutes, instead of spending hours each day slaving over a hot stove.

Hannah Potter spends Sunday evenings meal prepping for the week ahead and cooks up five delicious lunches and dinners in just 90 minutes.

She stores all the meals in plastic containers in her fridge or freezer, and each day simply takes out what she needs.

To keep her costs low, Hannah bulk buys her meat from yours truly and supplements it all with store cupboard essentials and fresh vegetables.

Hannah, from Oxford regularly meal preps for herself and her boyfriend Sean, but feels that it is important for mums and families to understand the benefits of it too.

The 25-year-old blogger and primary school teacher regularly shares her delicious, healthy recipes on Instagram for her 27,000 followers.

She says that by making simple, but nutritious meals and using the same meat twice, meal prepping can be quick and easy.

And she says apart from the raw ingredients, all you need is a big stack of plastic food storage containers to put the prepped meals in.

Hannah’s favourite meal prepped recipes include delicious BBQ chicken and roasted sweet potato, turkey meatballs with tomato sauce and courgetti and cashew chicken with fried rice.

Hannah said: “Meal prepping is great if you’re looking to save time and money, and is perfect if you want a balanced diet packed with nutritious meals.

“People often shy away from meal prepping because they think it’ll be too tricky, but it is in fact, far from it.

“I find that by meal prepping on Sunday night you can have it all ready for the rest of the week, and the only thing you need to do is heat it up.

“If you’ve planned exactly what you are going to cook and have all the food storage containers to hand, then it’s really straightforward. The storage boxes will help with portion control too.

“And it’s simple if you have little children too. Smaller portions mean one box can be shared between them.

“As well as saving time, meal prepping can also save money too. I buy my meat in bulk from and because the quality is so good, I don’t have to use as much as if I was using ingredients from the supermarket.

“Meal prepping is great for families and for anyone looking to get a little healthier. It’s certainly the key to an easy, yet healthy lifestyle.

“The main thing to remember if you’re just starting your meal prep journey is to be consistent in planning and avoid getting overwhelmed.

“If you are struggling to cook it all on Sunday, sometimes I find that it is easier to meal prep food on Sunday for Monday and Tuesday, then meal prep on Wednesday for Thursday and Friday. Hopefully with my top tips and recipes, you can feel encouraged to give it a go.
