Benefits of Meal Prep
When you are going out to eat, sometimes we have no idea what the food contains, and how many calories it has. We're guessing on the amount but in reality, it can be compacted with a bunch of nonsense. Many fast foods places add in sugar, unhealthy fats, salt and many more. Excessive consumption leads to weight gain and many health problems.
I'm not sure, but I'm one of those people whom seem to get a bit sick after eating a meal from a fast food place. I would rather make a homemade meal than to eat out but it's convenient to eat out anyways, right? That's why many people seem to not care about making homemade meals. But back to the sickness, I do sometimes feel sluggish, tired and just weird after eating something from a fast food place. That tells me that it has junk in it and my body isn't liking it.
By making homemade meals, you are knowing what you are putting in your foods. You are the one who gets to decide how you're going to make it. You can make a healthy meal containing a low amount of calories but super dense in nutrition. This is the key when it comes to homemade meals or prepping your meals. Making the meals healthy as possible but yet tasteful. A lot of people do not want to cook, so why even do it?
If you want to better yourself in healthy and to save more money, start meal prepping. It may be hard at first, but you will get the hang of it. It's quite easy to meal prep to be honest; it takes approx about an Hour to finish up a week's worth of food. By making all of your meals in one going/session, you're saving a ton of time in the future. Also, this'll make sure you're staying healthy, staying on a diet and to make sure you're not eating junk and actually receiving beneficial nutrients.
Meal prep can be about anything. Chicken, rice and beans, or salmon, rice and carrots, or anything you'd like. Mix up a good nutritional plate/bowl and place it in the freezer/fridge. If you're in any rush, you can simply take your meal on the go. This is especially beneficial for us, Athletes.
Us athletes must eat every so often to maintain energy, strength and to grow. Without food, you are not progressing or healing in any way...So, if you're a serious bodybuilder or a pro athlete, meal timing and the nutrition of the meal is so important.
