Everybody loves a lazy Sunday, but this cherished day of rest can also be an essential first step towards a highly productive and healthy week ahead. Instead of stressing about work and daily to-dos, make the most of Sunday by preparing perfectly-portioned meals that will nourish your body and eliminate one more task on your weekly list.
1 – Cooking relieves stress
If you’re like me, the kitchen can provide a wonderful outlet for serenity and creativity. It’s a place where you can let go of the negativity and stress in the world and solely focus on the task at hand.
2 – Meal prep saves time and money
When your week is dedicated to kids, work, personal fitness and everything in between, figuring out what you want to do for lunch and dinner can be a hassle. This uncertainty is also a gateway to overspending and overeating if you choose a restaurant over a home-cooked meal.
3 – Pre-planned meals help you achieve your fitness goals
If not for the above benefits, plan your meals on Sunday so that you can slim down and stay healthy.
