If you’re serious about losing weight, leaning out or adding lean muscle, you know the role of nutrition cannot be underestimated.
Planning your foods in advance ensures you have the nutrients you need readily available, in their correct macros.
When you’re foods are not preplanned, you are likely to step out on your food plan when hunger strikes.
Lack of pre-planning can also make you over eat, under eat and lose track of your intake.
‘Clean’ eating can be expensive, but meal prepping makes it cheaper when you buy things in bulk and take advantage of your freezer.
Every once in a while I get caught up with life and don’t get time to do my Sunday Meal Prep, but what I have noticed for certain, is that I am always leaner when I’m on meal prep.
With my meals pre-packed one week ahead, I can carry one as I dash out of the house or I can serve it up on a plate and microwave real quick.
It takes the guess work out of what yo eat every day, weighing my food every day and cooking daily.
How To Get It Done In One Hour
The first time I ever did a meal prep, I stood in the kitchen for 3 solid hours, I thought my back was going to crack!
It shouldn’t be the case, and I learnt it the hard way.
For a quick and successful meal prep, you have to plan ahead.
For this meal prep, I’m making Pilau Brown Rice with steamed veggies and baked minced chicken breast.
I like to soak my brown rice overnight with the hope of making them cook faster.

Chicken breast can tend to get dry and bland sometimes, so this time I switched it up by having it ground. I then made a delicious, moist, flavorful ground chicken breast bake patty. Find recipe here.
I also like to chop or slice my veggies before hand to save more time. If you’re short on time, and you have a home assistant, they can assist you with this; though its a rather quick task.
