When done right, meal prep will also save you money. Meal prepping allows you to save money by purchasing items in bulk and freezing for later use. Always stock up on staples like olive oil, spices, and condiments when they're on sale.
After making dinner and cleaning up, do you really want to take everything out again to make lunch? My guess is no. So another benefit of meal prepping is multitasking.
Meal prepping also helps you reduce waste. When you’re portioning out your servings for the week, you know exactly how much to make and how much you have. So no more forgotten leftovers in the back of the fridge.
Finally, unlike processed meals, this method gives you total control over what goes into your food—perfect for anyone who wants to stay on track with their health goals.
