Meal prep can mean different things to different people, but it is all about making a routine that works best for you.
Preparing meals weekly (versus cooking everyday) has proved to offer many benefits including more free time, less food expenses, easier weight management, and strengthened brain function!
Eating out can be appropriate for a number of reasons, maybe to celebrate a special occasion with family or friends, or perhaps a date night just because! More often, these days, it is just a random night of the week where no one wants to cook.
The trend of not wanting to cook (and glorifying the convenience in eating out) has skyrocketed along with the cost.
According to a researcher at the Harvard Business Review, Americans can be divided into three groups:
-10 percent said they enjoyed cooking
-45 percent said they despised cooing
-45 percent were indecisive or indifferent about cooking
Reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistic calculated the average American household spent $2,787 dining out and $3,971 in groceries in 2014. By 2015, the restaurant bill increased to $3,008. The spending for groceries only increased by $44, bringing the average to $4,015. This trend signifies the new attitude around eating out: it is no longer a luxury.
The average American cannot afford such a costly habit just because it seems more conducive for their schedule.
The Savings Solution
Planning and preparing meals ahead of time provides many benefits. It can ultimately save your wallet, energy, and health while putting the enjoyment back into cooking for yourself and loved ones.
Meal prepping is sometimes perceived as exclusively for those with fitness goals, extra time to spend, and more money to invest. This is a common misunderstanding!
Think of it this way: meal prepping gives you more control over your diet, while supporting fitness goals, and can put time back into your week, and money back into your wallet!
