Designing Your Week Ahead Of Time

We are exposed to thousands of food decisions every single day. From advertising, to supermarkets, to cafes. The world around us is designed to ensure we consume as much as possible.


Many food companies spend millions of dollars ensuring their food and drinks are as addictive as possible.


The good news? You have the power to regain control and eliminate many of these food decisions from your day. Meal prep is all about simplifying your day and your decisions. Who doesn't need a little more simplicity in their life?




1.COOK ONCE, EAT ALL WEEK

Cook something like a bacon, egg & asparagus breakfast loaf. 3 ingredients, thrown in the oven. Slice into 5 x slices once cooked and cooled and you have breakfast (or lunch) sorted for the week.



2. PORTION SIZE AHEAD OF TIME

Portion your meals into ready to go Tupperware, jars or dishes. Doing this ahead of time means you can grab them to take with you and don't have to think about portioning up a plate for each meal or snack. You'll be less likely to over (or under) eat when you don't have to think about it.




3. GIFT YOUR FUTURE SELF

It can sound awfully dull spending a portion of your Sunday prepping meals for the week ahead, but you can thank yourself later. Make it fun, throw on some music and treat yourself to a wine and putting your feet up afterwards. Knowing you have your week ahead sorted, is a priceless feeling.




4. DO INCLUDE SNACKS

If you're starting a health mission, don't try and cut out snacks. Instead make better, healthier snacks, that align with your goals and have them ready for when you know you might be tempted to reach for something. It's about eating smarter, not less.





5. RETHINK EVERYTHING

Cereal and sandwiches. It's what we have told are our staple breakfast and lunch foods right? No. Reframe how you think of these times of day and what is 'possible' for each meal. You don't need cereal, bread or any other processed grain to fill you up. Focus on good protein, healthy fats and veggies for nutritious meals and snacks that will keep you full and your blood sugars balanced.
