Easy Way To Prepare Your Meals for the Week

Easy Way to Prepare Your Meals

Many people fear prepping their meals in advance because of the amount of time it takes or for fear of food spoiling by the end of the week. But preparing your meals for the week is a key aspect of helping yourself stay on track with your desired nutrition plan. While you can make healthy choices while eating out, it is not always ideal and is definitely NOT cost effective. Keep reading for easy ways to prepare your meals for the week that are cost and time effective- a win/win for all of you busy bees!

Each week I spend about 150 dollars on 7 days worth of food. If I were to eat out once a day for lunch and buy a snack at the store, I would EASILY spend 9 dollars a meal. Per week that adds up to about 63 dollars alone. If you order an appetizer or extra sides…keep tacking on the dollars.

When I first started to prepare my meals for the week, it would take me several hours and was nearly an all-day affair. Now I have found the system that works the best for me. As long as I stay focused while I am in the kitchen, I can make sure that the microwave, stove top and oven are being used to prepare as much food as possible. As each item is done cooking, I separate them into specific containers so that I can clean up the space and reuse the pot or pan to cook the next item.

YES- It will take some time and practice to get the hang of it, but prepping your meals in 1 day for a few hours beats having to cook 2 or 3 meals at home each day which would take you WAY more time in the long run.

Long story short… buying and preparing your own meals will save you time and money (two of my favorite things). Below are some tips and easy ways to prepare your meals for the week that help me stay on track. These specific strategies help me save time in the kitchen each day! At this point I can have most of my weekly meal preps done in 2 hours from start to finish giving me plenty of time to take care of the other important tasks of life such as cleaning, paying bills, doing laundry and spending quality time with my family.

Meal Prep Method

Preheat Oven- As soon as you walk in the door from shopping, set your oven to 350 degrees and allow it a few minutes to preheat. Buy your groceries and begin your cooking extravaganza. No sense in shopping and storing all of your food when you have to take it out again. Get everything done in 1 shot if you can! As oven is preheating, line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil to make your clean up quick. I cut open all the protein for the week, rinse, place on the baking sheets, season and place in the oven.

Store Perishables- After you place your first batch of items in the oven, place perishables in the refrigerator and keep the dry foods you will be working with on the counter.

Microwave- Place potatoes or frozen vegetables in the microwave through the entire duration of meal prepping. As each item is done heating, remove from the microwave to cool and add in the next item to cook.

Stove Top- As food is baking in the oven and heating in the microwave; I pull out 2 large frying pans and bring to medium high heat on the stove top. I will then cook and season other lean protein such as ground turkey, beef or chicken.

Tupperware and Storing Materials- As items are cooking, pull out all Tupperware and storing materials. Place them in a spot on the counter that is out of the way. As items from the microwave are finished cooking, begin placing them in their respective containers as side items. When the protein gets done cooking, portion them out for each meal in their container, wash the pan and cook remaining protein if needed. When fish is done in the oven, I allow the pans to cool before separating. Remove the used aluminum foil and replace with a fresh sheet if you need to bake more items. As each meal is completed, place the lid on the container and organize into your refrigerator.

Clean as you Go- Don’t wait until the end to clean up the garbage because it will make you feel overwhelmed. Place a small grocery bag on the counter to collect scraps and any packages from the food you are cooking. This keeps the prep space clean and makes cleaning up as simple as wiping down the counters and doing the dishes.

Tips:
-If you have leftovers from the week prior, keep them on a different shelf than your fresh food so you know what needs to be eaten first.
- Buy items such as frozen vegetables and lean cuts of meat in bulk when they are on sale to save some money- you can freeze the extras. The same goes for dry items such as rice, oatmeal and cooking oil. If they are on sale, these items have a very long shelf life so stock up and buy in bulk rather than buying a small box each week.
-Invest in a small Tupperware and plastic baggie collection to have on hand at all times so that you can separate your meals into the desired portion sizes. I like to get the set of Tupperware that has the medium sized containers so that I can place separate meals in the containers and place them in my lunch bag rather than having to scoop out servings from the large container each day.

The more that you cook your meals in advance by using these easy ways to prepare your meals for the week, you will notice that you are less tempted to eat out if you have already spent the money on buying food for yourself. You will also be more likely to stay on track with your nutrition and fitness goals and you will be less likely to make poor food choices. You will also save yourself tons of money if you buy your food and prepare it all yourself. What strategies do you use in the kitchen when preparing nutritious meals?

Now that you have a new challenge in the kitchen, are you ready for a new challenge in the gym? Check out this Advanced High Intensity Sprint Workout to try during your next workout. It will be intense- but remember you have to push yourself in order to see the most changes.

Advanced High Intensity Sprint Workout

Advanced High Intensity Sprint Workout

If you love running but are stuck in a training rut, switch up your routine with this advanced high intensity sprint workout. If you typically run at a moderate pace and are specifically doing steady state endurance training, this sprint workout is the perfect amount of high intensity to offer you a new challenge. The high intensity of this advanced sprint workout will help you slash your workout time in half and is the perfect routine when you are running short on time. If this is your first time trying sprint intervals, be sure to go at your own pace and listen to your body. The workout listed below is advanced. Keep the incline the same for all levels of experience. Simply adjust the speed as needed when beginning.

Since this workout is done on the incline of a treadmill, you may notice that different muscles in your legs are sore. This is probably due to the fact that many of your cardio sessions on the treadmill were probably performed at little to no incline. If you normally run long distances, you primarily use slow twitch fibers in your muscles which help you out with endurance training. Sprint work is explosive and fast which recruits fast twitch fibers. Think about the legs of a marathon runner vs a sprinter. The sprinter is usually more muscular and has more shape to their legs. This is due to the type of training each athlete performs.  This advanced high intensity workout will challenge your cardiovascular system as well as help sculpt your legs while shedding some fat.

As you may already know, training and drinking a Celsius are great ways to burn body fat and boost your metabolism, but you can slow down this process if you have poor nutrition. Check out the article- Nutrition Tips to Burn Fat- for some ideas on how you can nourish and fuel your body for training and overall health!

Leave a comment below about your favorite type of cardio machine to use at the gym and I will try to create a customized high intensity interval workout for you and that piece of equipment!

Should You Work Out with a Partner

                          Training with a partner

Which is your best option, trying to work out with a partner or training solo? Many enjoy solitude and simply want to blast music on their headphones while training. On the other hand, there are those who would not be caught dead working out alone and need a partner. As long as you are happy and getting in an effective workout then it does not matter who you train with, but if you need a bit of a change, read some of the points below if you are still unsure if you should train with a partner or go at it alone.

Reasons to Train Solo:

-Work at your own pace.
-Stay focused on your goal.
-Do not have to worry on others arriving on time or the pressure of making it on time if you happen to be running late.
-Stay as long or as little as needed.
-Don’t have to worry about “entertaining” someone by talking or gossiping to pass the time.
-Blast as much music as you would like.

Reasons to Train with a Partner:

-Someone to give you extra motivation.
-Can push and encourage each other.
-Have someone to hold you accountable.
-Someone to spot you when using heavier weight.

I personally enjoy training by myself so that I do not have to wait around for others and can go at my own pace. When I need a spotter, I simply ask someone who is working out near me to help me out during their rest/recovery period. I have never had anyone refuse; most people love to help others out.

How To Pick The Right Partner

If you choose to train with a partner, make sure that your gym partner is just as focused and dedicated as you are. As training partners, you should be able to push each other to get better and stronger, not be chit-chat buddies at the water cooler. With all of your workouts, keeping your intensity levels high is crucial to see change. Talking in between sets and catching up on the latest gossip is only going to serve as a distraction from your goals, your heart rate drops and you may lose focus. If the only way to avoid this is training alone then so be it!

Training should be your time to release daily tension, boost your health and improve your physique. If you feel like your training partner is always late, making excuses and not adding anything to your workout, then it may be time to ditch them and train solo. You can also find a happy medium and pick a few days a week where you have training dates set and the other days you train alone. This may help you get the most out of your workouts. Sometimes it is good to have a bit of a change and having someone with you may make you work even harder. There is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition.

If you are just starting out on your fitness journey, try to pick a training partner who is reliable and is also goal oriented. If you are an advanced gym goer, try to choose a training partner who is at your level of physical fitness or maybe a bit more advanced. This will ensure that you can push each other and you may be able to learn a thing or two from them and their training style. You want to make sure you’re your training partner does not give you the chance to slack off and work at a beginner level- that would defeat the whole purpose.

If you are advanced and are looking to help someone get started, pick a separate time from your training schedule to show them the ropes and help out. We ALL started somewhere with very little knowledge of the weight room, which can be a very scary place to some. So be kind, give back and always try to lend a helping hand to those who ask for it. Be sure to help others who may not be as comfortable and confident in the gym as you are so that you can help improve their life too!

Training Tip: If you need some energy to get through your workouts, try drinking a Celsius 15 minutes before your cardio or strength training routine. This will provide you with the extra endurance that you need to train with the proper intensity. You can find Celsius online or at a retailer near you.
