Meal Prepping Saves Time and Money
If you want to save time or money, it is time to meal prep. By only cooking once or twice a week, you will drastically decrease the amount of time you spend in the kitchen.
Meal prepping will help you free up your time to do the things you enjoy the most like spending time with your family or picking up a new hobby.
You can finally take that yoga class, or start reading that book you’ve been meaning to get to; the opportunities are endless.
Are you looking for ways to save money?
Start bringing your lunch to work.
An average meal cost anywhere from $7 – $12 depending on your city. If you buy lunch every day that’s about $35 – $60 a week or $140 – $240 per month. In addition to whatever amount you pay for groceries.
Meal prepping will help you cut back how much money you spend eating out (especially during the week). Having food at home empowers you to decline invitations to dinners and happy hours.
Saying no to events can be hard, but once you see the savings in your bank account, it will be worth it.
Use this opportunity to cook for your loved ones at home. It is healthier and more affordable.
It is Fun
You might not think meal prepping is fun, after all, it does require a lot of work and patience. But that doesn’t mean it cannot be an enjoyable experience for you.
If you want to enjoy meal prepping you have to get into it!
Plan your grocery shopping trips, write down your recipes and embracing making new dishes. The best part about meal prepping is letting your imagination and creativity go wild.
