March 05, 2018 | Cooking Tips
So you’ve settled into a workout routine and now you need to start eating healthier by meal prepping. The idea of preparing a week’s worth of food may sound daunting or boring but it doesn’t have to be that way! Let’s see how we can spice things up.
Make it a fun day out
Get your friends involved and eat healthy together! Nutritious meals begin with fresh ingredients from the grocery store and what better way to do so than by shopping together?
With your shopping lists in hand, each one of you an be assigned to pick up specific items from sections of the supermarket. This will speed up the shopping process and leave you with more time to cook in the kitchen. Or if you prefer, make it a super social experience by rolling through the aisles as a pack!
Get Musical, Get Cooking
Even if you’re cooking alone, meal prepping doesn’t have to be a quiet and dull affair. Dish out your favourite tunes and have a blast in the kitchen! Need some playlist suggestions? Have a listen to these Spotify playlists during your next cook off:
1) Anthony Bourdain’s Music To Cook By Playlist
This playlist has a good mix of the classics from the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Bob Dylan, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. There are even some hits from The Rolling Stones and The Velvet Underground!
2) Music For Cooking
A playlist put together by Filtr Sweden, you’ll enjoy this if you’re into tunes by John Mayer, Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, and a whole lot more. There are 80 songs in this one so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Cooking With Substance
Do you have a wine that goes very well with the meal you’re prepping? Pour yourself a glass and have a relaxing meal prep session. You’ll already be looking forward to the next meal prep!
