As a busy, working professional finding time to eat healthy can be a challenge. Add in kids and it’s even more of a challenge!  But that’s where prepping your food can come in and ultimately save you time.  All you need is one day a week and a few hours on that day.  Simple right?  Yes, but it can be overwhelming.  The trick is to have right tools and to plan ahead.

One of the tools that will help is portion control containers.  These will tell you how much of something you can have without having to put too much thought into it.  The color coding system is a no brainer too!  By using portion control containers, you’re allowing yourself to have the food you want, but in the right amount.

So once you portion out the food, what do you put them in?  Well, it all depends on what you’re dealing with.  For snacks, snack size bags are the perfect container because they’re grab-and-go and can fit in any bag you bring with you.  If it’s meals, I recommend going for glass containers because they are cleaner, microwave and oven safe and are portable.

This might sound good and all, but what do you do if you don’t know where to start?  I can help with that!  One of the services I offer is what I like to call a Prepping Party.  I come to you and we go through your food and prep.  As we do this, we talk about the types of food you have, what flavors go together and ways to make swaps for a healthier diet.  Small changes can lead to big progress for you and your family and with just a few hours a week, we can simplify your life.
