Meal Prep for One

save time and money

Our recipes are focused on those meal prepping for one person to help save time and money while ensuring that you have healthy meals on hand throughout the week. Here are some tips to help you meal prep for one:

plan ahead

Plan ahead: Take some time to plan out your meals for the week and which days you need meal prep. Think about the ingredients you already have on hand, as well as any recipes you’d like to try. This can help you put together a list of groceries that you need to pick up. Also, choose ingredients that can be used in multiple meals, such as chicken, beans, or sweet potatoes. This can help you save time and money while also keeping your meals varied and interesting.

smaller portions

When meal prepping for one, it’s important to use smaller portions to prevent waste. Consider using smaller containers or portioning out your meals into single servings. You can still cook larger quantities of certain ingredients, such as rice, quinoa, or roasted vegetables so that you can use them in multiple meals throughout the week. This is a great way to save tons of time. As well as taking some time to prep ingredients in advance, such as washing and chopping vegetables or marinating proteins. This can help you save time during the week when it comes to meal prep.
