Does it? Yes, meal prepping for the week can be overwhelming and a bit confusing when you first begin to improve your eating habits. But like everything else in life that’s worth doing takes time. The first week we begin to meal prep seems to be the most expensive for many because you are not accustomed to purchasing so many items at once. Not to worry though, many of these items that drove your grocery bill up become staples in your pantry for the next few weeks.
Now let’s talk about what you are saving on the short and long end. Let’s start with money. I don’t know anyone that has says, “I love wasting money!” On the contrary, most of us want to find ways to save money and get the most out of each dollar.
Let us start with eating out:
I have asked a few of our members what the average cost per week they spend on eating out and it’s roughly $125-$200, PER WEEK for 1 person! That’s an insane amount of money to be spending on food and that amount sometimes does not include the weekend spending, for 1 person. Which we all know can be more expensive. To contradict that cost, I spend an average of $150-$200 for a family of four, which includes two growing teenagers. The math speaks for itself.
Next is time:
Which to many of us, particularly with more hectic schedules and lives these days, your time is more valuable or indispensable than ever. You know these moments:
- prepare a breakfast when you’re running late
- what to pack for lunch?
- fighting traffic to prepare dinner for hangry kids
Sound familiar? We all have days, weeks, if not months like this, so why not have your food ready to go and save you untimely eating and spending.
Last is untimely eating:
Going to the refrigerator for a snack or meal and nothing healthy is in there. Highly unlikely you will cook something, so you grab the chips, sweets, or the most convenient item in the kitchen that have the most calories. Untimely eating leads to excess weight over time. Why not have something that has nutritional value ready.
Do you still think meal-prepping cost too much money? Seems it can save you far more than just money.
