Meal prepping is absolutely necessary if you
A) like eating healthy.
b) like saving money.
b) like saving time.
Meal prepping is also great if you are bodybuilding, trying to lose weight or eat clean and just want to have a whole bunch of healthy meals on hand. You can prep all of your meals on Sunday and sit back and relax for the rest of the week. Prepared meals are great to have in school, at work, or when you need a quick lunch or dinner. Meal-prepping saves you money because it eliminates the last minute need to order take-out or fast food!

Containers we use:
The only other things you will need for meal-prepping is about an hour of time and meal prep containers. We like to use these black meal-prep containers that we order on Amazon. The plastic or glass version works just fine. The plastic is much cheaper but the glass lasts a lot longer so it boils down to what you prefer. They ship super fast and are always great to have on hand for prepping and storing food!
