The idea behind meal prep

Wednesday 18th September, 2019  ●  Sarah Agius

It’s easy to make the decision to eat more healthily. The hard part is actually doing it. Some common stumbling blocks are deciding what to eat and doing the daily preparations, cooking and dishes. It’s about over-prepping for a few weeks and then coasting at mealtime.

1. Frozen food is your friend

Freezing meals is one of the best ways to cut back on daily prep and give yourself a variety of food to eat.

On your meal-prep day, open the club pack of chicken breasts, steak or fish you’ve bought and cut it all up to your portion size. Season it and then wrap the individual portions in reusable silicone bags or containers and freeze it.

You can also make up a batch of chili, curry chicken, stuffed peppers, meatballs or stews and package them in individual portions. Take the portions you need out of the freezer in the morning, thaw in the fridge and toss them in the oven or on the barbecue when you get home. You can also put frozen portions into the slow cooker before you head out the door.

2. Fresh and fast

If you prefer fresh ingredients for your meals, prep days would involve chopping up vegetables for a salad and dividing them into individual portions to go in the fridge. Make up a few batches of different salad dressings and put them in the fridge. Cook some chicken, steak or hard-boiled eggs and have those packaged in portions. When you get home, you have a salad buffet in your fridge, or maybe veggies for a quick stir-fry.

If you make the commitment to meal prep and set aside the time, you’ll end up with something that’s healthy and delicious and you won’t be tempted to cheat or nibble on random food.

Because there are so many different kinds of yoga practices, it is possible for anyone to start. Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration.

Body- and self-awareness are particularly beneficial because they can help with early detection of physical problems and allow for early preventive action.
