Where I find my recipes:

Pinterest is a lifesaver. It saves key words that you search with and then recommends recipes you might like. I search using these keywords:

  • Paleo
  • Whole 30
  • Gluten Free
  • Lactose Free
  • 2 ingredient
  • 3 ingredient
  • Healthy
  • Vegan


How does food-shopping work?

At first I went to the grocery store and spent hours shopping on Sunday morning. Then I discovered Giant Peapod and Harris Teeter Express Lane and it changed my whole meal prep game. For a small service fee ($2-4) you can order your ingredients from the comfort of your own home and pick it up curbside from the grocery store. You save hours. You can even get it delivered for a larger fee.


Where do I get my containers?

I found my containers on Amazon. I searched “Meal Prep Containers: round, small, square, etc” I only buy ones that are microwavable and dishwasher safe.


How do I organize?

You need to make a meal plan. Sit down and write on a piece of paper: “Breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, snack.” Write down what you plan on eating beside each.


Then line up all your containers on the table and literally put post- it notes in each section of the container of what food will be going in it. Trust me, it helps. After a while you won’t need to do that, but in the beginning, you will.


Do I count macros?

Making a meal plan and cooking take long enough and it would be overwhelming to count macros most weeks. Instead I follow this general plate rule: If I put all my days’ meals on a huge plate it should be:

½ veggies, ¼ protein, ¼ carbohydrates


How do I stay Motivated?

Once I started meal prepping I felt amazing. Every Sunday night you have a sense of accomplishment for accomplishing such a huge feat. You will also, without a doubt, see changes in your body. You will get trim and have a ton of stamina and endurance at the gym.
