Day 28: Prep it
Food prep is all the rage these days, but this healthful activity isn’t really new to the scene. Families have been prepping food in advance of when it’s consumed for ages. There’s even a well-known quote by Benjamin Franklin: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
Well, today it’s time to prepare for success! It is much easier to make healthy eating choices when healthful foods are prepped and ready to eat or use. If we could all take back the not-so-great eating choices we’ve made when we are tired and unmotivated and there’s nothing easy and ready to eat, we’d all have smaller waistlines and healthier bodies.
Pinterest and the rest of the internet is literally swamped with thousands of ideas for easy food prep and clean eating food prep. Take some time on a Sunday (or whenever you have a couple of free hours to set aside for this healthful task) to prep your food for the week. Even if you just roast a few vegetables, prepare some basic whole grains, and clean and cut some fresh veggies for snacking, you’ll be making a healthful start to the upcoming week.
Today, we urge you to spend some time in the kitchen, prepping your food for the week. Having healthful choices at the ready is a great way to support your healthful eating all week long! We’d love to hear what you prep for the week! Share your prep and ideas in the comments!
