A salad and piece of chicken illustrating the importance of meal prep

I wanted to share with you the importance of meal prep and how it has changed my family’s lives.  I cannot stress the importance of meal planning for not only weight loss but for creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle.  If you are a family with working parents and a busy calendar, meal planning and preparing food ahead of time is critical.  Not only do you save money by not eating out, you can feel good about what you are putting in your body.

Meal prepping is not hard, but it does require a time investment. Is ensuring the future health of yourself and family worth giving up a few hours on the weekend?

In the video below, I talk about how meal prep has changed our lives for the better and how we fit it into our schedule.  If you want to see more step by step instructions, you can read my blog post, “How to meal prep for busy families.”
