yes, you can

I hear this all the time: “I don’t think I can food prep.”

Yes, you can.

You may not choose to do food prep. There’s nothing wrong with this. It doesn’t work for everyone. It doesn’t always work for me.

But I have an issue with people saying oh, I could never do that. Don’t they know that your thoughts and words influence your reality? Why not make your reality positive?

Actually, I have a bigger issue with people who say they can’t plan meals for a few days, as in how the crap do you have time to go to the grocery store every other day? Or the money? Just planning a few meals takes so much less time.

Anyway, I digress. So for those of you who are intrigued by the thought of doing food prep on Sundays, whether it’s for breakfast every day, a few lunches, or cooking an extra chicken breast to make one more meal later in the week, here’s a fabulous resource: http://www.theleangreenbean.com/how-to-food-prep/

Simple. Easy. Effective.

Don’t make it a huge deal. Cut up a few carrot sticks or slice a cucumber. Double the recipe for your Sunday night dinner and freeze half. It’s a good way to start. And it’s a fabulous help for those evenings when you come home tired out and just want to call for take out….and then you open the fridge and voila….a meal all set for you. It’s almost as awesome as coming home and smelling dinner in the crockpot.

Give it a try. You can do it.

And if you’re ready to do some simple meal planning, here’s a huge help, a website where you can easily upload recipes, plug them into a planner, and have your shopping list made for you: http://www.plantoeat.com. Free month trial. It has changed how I cook and especially how I shop. Amazing.
