Kick-off your adulting milestone with this basic guide to meal prepping using Solane
If you’re someone who just transitioned to the ‘adulting stage’ by moving out of your home, perhaps you’ve heard of the term ‘meal prepping.’
You might have imagined moving out as being able to cook delicious dinner after a day’s work. But chances are, there will always be days when you’re already too tired to think of a recipe to whip up and you end up getting fast food instead.
Enter ‘meal prepping,’ the concept and process of planning, preparing or cooking meals, dishes or ingredients ahead of schedule.
Meal prep is particularly popular for busy people as it saves time and energy. Devoting a few hours over the weekend to plan and prepare ahead means no longer having to think of what to cook thrice a day for the weekday.
Because it also involves a lot of planning, it can be a sulit way to stick to your budget – which means less impulsive food deliveries or drive-thru. If you’re health-conscious, meal prep allows you able to control portions and choose your ingredients – after all, healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive.
Where do I start?
Meal prep takes commitment and careful planning for it to work. Here are some basic steps in starting out:
Find a method to organize your meal plan
To make your meal prepping manageable, you can download a smartphone app or write down your meal plan in your personal planner. For easier visibility, you can also opt for a whiteboard that can be attached to the fridge or anywhere in the kitchen.
Get reusable, airtight food storage containers
Invest in meal prep containers that can keep your food fresh inside the fridge while considering your lifestyle. Clear containers will help you see the contents in one go while some glass containers are microwavable- and oven-friendly. You can also opt for BPA-free food-grade silicon storage bags instead of single-use plastic when freezing meals or ingredients.
Invest in safe and reliable kitchen essential
Meal prepping is fun, convenient, and sulit when you can also rely on your kitchen essentials. To make your meal prep easier, invest in the right kitchen tools. A chopper and dicer with interchangeable blades will speed up ingredient preparation while an egg and vegetable steamer will cut your cooking time and enable you to multitask. Investing in non-stick cookware will also make it easier for you to clean up.
Being a ‘legit adult’ also means knowing which products are safe and will give you your money’s worth in the long run.
