Sunday Meal Prep For Beginners; October Week 1

Meal Prep

If you interested in losing weight or maintaining a healthy diet. Planning your meals for the week is essential. It saves you a ton of time and also saves you money. Take one hour out of your Sunday and get all your meals for the week together in one shot.

Over the next month, I will be showing you how we do our Sunday meal prep. Each week we will come out with a new meal prep you can try. This one is a simple meal prep beginners. For beginners, I like to focus on the morning and afternoon. If you are a desk person,  like me, you are kind of forced to eat what you bring into the office. I also eat my breakfast after I get to work vs at home. Allows for some extra sleep plus I workout with weights in the mornings before I go to work most days. The items I use are all Gluten Free. You can learn more about the results of my MRT food sensitivity test here.

The goal for me in this meal prep is to focus on a bit of weight loss. Now that it is starting to get colder here on the east coast I am less active, so my weight has gone up. These are easy meal prep ideas for weight loss you can try.

This kind of gives you an idea on what I am doing.  I do follow a workout program as well. I will get into that in a later post.

Is this the perfect thing, 100% healthy no. The idea is to get you started by being able to basically hit Costco and you are done for the week. We are looking for compliance over anything else.
