I know the thought of giving up part of your Sunday to meal prep can be daunting. It doesn’t have to be that way though!
Nutrition coaching at Sweat Factory Crossfit is designed to make it easy using some tricks that have helped over 10,000 people see amazing results.
Here are 4 useful tools in the kitchen!
Instant pots are like crockpots on steroids. The goal is that you set it and forget it! This allows you to throw some ingredients in there and continue prepping 1-2 other options to increase variety without having to do all the manual labor cooking.
2. Muffin Tin
Some of our favorite recipes use a muffin tin, like the egg muffins and meatloaf muffins. This allows your prepped foods to be perfectly portioned in about 3 ounces.
3. Food Scale
What we “think” is 4 ounces, if often not close when it comes to the guessing game. It’s important to dust off those measuring tools to ensure you aren’t getting too much or too little. Weight loss is about calories in vs calories out and we want to make sure if you are taking the time to prep, that you are eating the right quantity to see the results you are looking for!
Once your food is prepped, take the few extra minutes to portion it out into contains so that your Sunday Meal Prep is truly, grab and go during the week. How often have you had great intentions buying food, maybe even cooking it and forgetting about it or letting it go to waste? We have ALL been there. Portioning your food into containers allows you to just grab and go when in a hurry or exhausted after a long day.
We hope you have these tools, but if not, just start with one! Keep it simple and just take one step at a time!
