The 3 Misconceptions about Meal Prep

It's meal prep week! Healthy Mama Meal Prep launches 1-week from today (join the waiting list for an exclusive discount!) so we are spending this week sharing a sneak peek of the Healthy Mama Meal Prep Course, with some awesome tips and recipes for making meal prep work for you and your family.

Today we're talking about the 3 major misconceptions about meal prep. Watch the video (exclusive preview from Healthy Mama Meal Prep!) to learn more.

Let's recap those 3 major misconceptions:

  1. Meal prep takes hours and hours.

  2. Meal prep means cooking and eating the same breakfast, lunch and dinner out of tupperware containers- ick! Who wants to eat the same meals over and over again?

  3. You need to have a ton of kitchen skills to meal prep.

Let’s debunk those myths:

  1. Meal prep doesn't have to take hours. In fact, you can get it done in as little as 1 hour a week and save yourself 5+ hours during the week.

  2. Meal prep does NOT have to be boring! Sure, you COULD make all your meals for the week- that would be most convenient. But BO-RING! I'll teach you skills to add variety to your meal prep, even when planning and prepping ahead.

  3. NO way. Yes, I have the kitchen skills- that's why I'm the teacher. But whether you're a seasoned home chef, or a novice cook, meal prep can work for you. It's all about choosing recipes that work within your time, budget and skill level- and being willing to learn.

So WHY should you meal prep?

  1. Meal prep saves TIME. So much time- during the week.

  2. Meal planning saves money! No last minute trips to the grocery store or quick takeout trips.

  3. Meal prep makes healthy living EASY- when there is healthy food in your fridge (prepped and ready to go), you will EAT healthy food!
