In a world populated by fast food chains and eating out, processed food-like items full of toxins, additives and addictive chemicals are the norm. At the same time, the typical 21st century adult is busier than ever before. While automation and technology are meant to free mankind from toil and stress, they have done the opposite... we have less free time than people in the past.
Much of our day is dominated by staring into electronic monitors and screens. We sit more than stand, we are sedentary and inactive, and children now develop "adult" diseases. The increasing risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and mental health issues have created what the World Health Organization calls an epidemic of health problems we have never seen before.
In 2008, obesity in the US caused a recorded $147 billion in medical costs. Just 4 years later diabetes medical costs had bloomed to $245 billion. This condition, and others, is directly linked to overweight and obesity, physical symptoms linked with a long list of chronic diseases and illness. And while we used to believe that exercise could "offset" poor nutrition to a great extent, we now know that bad eating habits can't be overcome with all of the jogging and weightlifting in the world.
If that sounds pretty grim, and it should, there is a simple answer... healthy meal prepping.
This healthy eating guide makes a simple proposition - to save you time and money while replacing poor health risks and realities with overall health and wellness. That begins with education, understanding what and how to eat for physical, emotional and mental health. You will discover a myriad of tips and best practices that make planning and preparing healthy meals simple. And, also, preparing meals you actually want to eat.
There are apps and websites that can help you along the way, and you will receive a few simple recipes that promote good health. Coincidentally, you will discover exactly why you should prep days of nutritious meals in advance, if the scary health facts and figures from earlier are not enough motivation. Finally, you will formulate a shopping list, and uncover the frugal beauty of bulk buys.
If you are ready to avoid the 21st century curse of poor health so many profit-seeking food manufacturers have put on you and your family, let's get started by going back to school.
Continuing if you aren’t convinced:
Back in the introduction I highlighted the big 3 reasons you should be planning and prepping healthy meals ahead of time. You can save time, you can save money as well when you shop sales and buy in bulk, and you benefit from overall health and well-being. It is also easier to resist temptations when you plan your meals in advance, shop accordingly, and keep your belly full of healthy proteins, fats and carbohydrates.
Meal prep is all about planning.
When you work out your schedule, and that of your family, you can shop and prepare your meals properly. This allows you to have healthy snacks around when the kids and grandkids get hungry, and can keep you from reaching for unhealthy processed food and sugar-filled snacks if you get the munchies throughout the day. It also means eating a lot of plant-based foods, which are full of dietary fiber that cleans out your system and fills you up quickly.
