Stay on track with your meal prep this holiday season

The holiday season can reek havoc on our nutrition and meal prep. With all the treats and chaos it can be difficult to stick to your meal planning and prep so I wanted to share with you some tips to help keep your nutrition in line throughout the holiday season and keep your life simple.

  1. Pick two days a week. One will be your big food prep day and the other will be a mini prep day.
  2. Do your shopping the same day as your big prep day. Food will be fresh!
  3. Make it a family event. It will go faster and can be great bonding time with the fam.

Sunday is a great day for your big prep. Here are a few ideas to get you through the week:

  • Boil eggs. Great for breakfast and snacks when you need a quick protein boost.
  • Roast some sweet potatoes and leave the skin on.  Refrigerate and peal when you are ready to eat.
  • Roast all your veggies. Chop, spread on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, some sea salt, pepper or any other of your favorite spice. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Let cool and store in the refrigerator for the week.
  • Soup. Make a batch of soup. It lasts all week!
  • Bake (or grill) your meat.  You'll probably want to make around two pounds of meat. Store in the refrigerator. This can make for quick salads or breakfasts.Hope these tips help you during the next couple weeks of holiday chaos! If this doesn't work for you, try a service like Origin Meals. Everything is done for you and Studio ME is a fridge site so all you need to do is pick up the meals, heat (if required) and eat.  Happy Holidays!
