How to Get Started with Healthy Meal Prep

There is a TON of information out there about meal prep that it can be daunting for beginners. By this time, you'll probably find yourself or your loved ones working from home, which pretty much forces you to cook your own meal or your loved ones that sometimes is not kinda fun and exhausting.

Enter meal prepping. It can help you spend less time in the kitchen. It can also help you stay on track when it comes to making healthier food choices. So if you are interested in meal prepping, but clueless as to what it’s all about? Here are some simple steps to meal prepping for beginners.

Get Organized

In order to be successful on your meal prep, staying organized is very important and a great start for you as a beginner. Set your mind that having an organized kitchen, pantry, and refrigerator make everything from menu creation, grocery shopping, and meal prep as easy as 123. Keep in mind that there’s no right or wrong way to organize your meal prep spaces. Just make sure to find and understand the system that works for you.

Replenish your pantry first

Before you roll your sleeve and make your meal plan, take an inventory of what you already have on hand. Replenish your food storage, including your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator, and make a note of any specific foods you want or need to use up. Doing this helps you move through the food you already have, reduces waste, and prevents you from unnecessarily buying the same things over and over again.

List down and have record in-place of your favorite meals

It can be a bummer to forget a recipe that you or your family really enjoyed. Or worse, forgetting a recipe you don’t like to prepare and end up making the same mistakes. Avoid these culinary messes by keeping a list of your favorite and least favorite meals. It’s also helpful to keep notes of any edits you made or would like to make to a particular recipe, so you can quickly begin taking your culinary skills from amateur to expert.


Meal planning and preparation is a great way to make healthier food choices, create positive eating habits and save time and money. Though it may seem a little bit daunting at first, there are a variety of strategies you can employ to develop a progressive meal planning habit that works for your unique lifestyle.
