Meal Prepping Vs Meal Planning

Meal Prepping Vs Meal Planning

Today we’re going to look at Meal Prepping Vs Meal Planning and how they can help you lose those extra few kilos you’re stuck with. Everyone has someone in their family or friends circle who have uttered those words meal prepping and incase you haven’t lets run through quickly what meal prepping is.

Meal prepping, short for meal preparation, is a popular approach to food preparation in which you plan and cook meals in advance for the upcoming days or week. The idea behind meal prepping is to save time and make eating healthy, balanced meals more convenient. It involves preparing and portioning out ingredients or entire meals ahead of time, so they are ready to be eaten when needed.

It also typically involves preparing large batches of the same meals in advance and storing them for consumption throughout the week. While this approach can save time, it might not be the best option for families with varying tastes or if you don’t like eating the same thing over and over again.

Meal Planning

Meal prepping while great while you’re young or not having little humans around can become a lot more challenging to stick to when you have to accommodate their little taste buds. This is why I have moved to meal planning which provides me with a little more added freedom.

Meal planning, allows you to create multiple dishes from the same set of ingredients that accommodates everyone’s preferences. You can do this with a variety of dishes and ingredients, ensuring each family member enjoys their favorite meal and you skip out on additional calories.

Meal planning also helps reduce food waste compared to meal prepping. When you prepare large batches of the same meal in advance, there’s a higher chance that some portions might go uneaten, leading to food waste. Moreover, children’s tastes can change quickly, and they might not be in the mood for a particular dish on a repetitive basis unless its chips…..

Meal planning, with its tailored approach, enables you to purchase and prepare ingredients more accurately. By buying only what you need for each meal, you can minimise food waste, save money, and contribute to a more achievable goal.

If you’re trying to lose weight and stick to a diet and avoid excessive calories than meal planning is a great way to ensure you remain on target and everyone else at home gets to enjoy their favorite meals.
