Spending ten minutes to prepare some foods you use for lunches, snacks and dinners, takes the hassle out of everyday food preparation and ensures your portions are easily adhered to.
Consider which foods you use to make snacks often e.g. you may like grated carrot, beetroot, tuna and cottage cheese on pita pockets. Whatever you like, prepare these things separately in small containers so when you want to make a snack, it’s quick, easy and simple.
- Grate a couple of carrots and put in container or resealable bag
- Open a tin of tuna and put in a container
- Open a tin of beetroot and put in a container
- If you like tuna and cottage cheese together (high protein) – mix together and put in a container
Separate things to be frozen (like chicken breasts or steak) into portion sizes, and wrap in freezer bags or glad wrap separately. You get the idea. Your fridge will look very organised and it will make your nutrition plan easy to follow. You might want to have a glass jug of water with a squeeze of lemon juice, to drink throughout the day.
You may also like to make large dishes (like spaghetti bolognaise or soup, for example) and freeze them into small separate meals for when you don’t have much time. The extent of your preparation is up to you. But you will soon see the benefits of a more organised fridge. There are many ways to utilise this concept. Get creative. Get organised!
