Angela cuts down the time required by purchasing prepacked ingredients, such as beans, rice and tortilla chips, which don’t require any cooking.
The ingredients for the Mexican-inspired salad included corn, shredded cucumber, lettuce and cabbage.
The only ingredient that needed to be cooked was the minced meat seasoned with taco spices.
Both meals would be ideal options for those wanting to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
‘Like you, I have weeks when I just don’t feel like meal prepping. But I just KNOW that I need to get myself organised if I want to stay on track, particularly if I’m looking to lose body fat,’ Angela wrote.
‘If you’re looking to get leaner and achieve your weight loss goal, then you’ll just need to have some sort of organisation.’
Dedicating some time every Sunday to prepare meals is a great way to avoid making poor eating choices during the week when hunger strikes.
‘Remember that healthy eating doesn’t have to complicated or time consuming. It’s actually quite easy with the right guidance,’ she added.
Angela’s top meal prep tips:
1. Keep it simple
2. Choose meals with similar ingredients
3. Figure out your timings
4. Purchase pre-packaged foods – such as frozen vegetables or canned goods
