Meal prep ideas should always include healthy snacks too. When you’ve got everything portion-controlled and ready to go, it’s much easier to ward off sugar and junk food cravings and stick to a diet. It also makes it eating at regular intervals a snap, which keeps your metabolism humming and energy high. This doesn’t just help with weight loss, it also prevents blood sugar spikes, increasing your mental sharpness and productivity. Meal planning could actually be responsible for your next promotion!
