5 Tools to Make Meal Prep Go Smoother
If you’re looking to eat healthier (and who isn’t?), one of the best things you can do is start meal prepping. Planning out your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the week—and taking a day to get a lot of the advance work done—makes it easier to eat nutritious, home-cooked meals all week long (and avoid the temptation to grab takeout!). But the thought of preparing all that food at once can be overwhelming. That’s where these tools come in. Stock up on them and you’ll see that meal prep isn’t so hard after all. (Need meal ideas? Make overnight oats for breakfast, a week’s worth of Mediterranean-inspired lunches, and a big batch of healthy steak burritos or slow-cooker vegetable soup for dinners.)
